Taken from his album Love Drug, All I Need sits at the cutting edge of the modern commercial music vibe. Slow, late night R&B grooves built from skittering beats and swirling electronica, half spoken, half sung intimate lyrics and space and atmospherics adding a whole slice of mystery and anticipation. This is music of the understated, the considered, the restrained, where as many fellow artists working in a similar field would through every trick in the book, employ every studio technique known to man to layer and texture their songs, JSY instead turns to the art of deconstruction and the use of space.
The result is a song so elegant and gossamer delicate in its form that with little else to distract, the lyrics become the vocal point. Music for the late night wind down, the after party chill session or the soundtrack to a romantic encounter, this is what happens when an artist concentrates on the lyrical message and not the musical envelope it is delivered in.
