JenJen is a singer, songwriter, producer and DJ with a truly unique sense of musical aesthetic. Fusing elements of world music with broken electronic beats, etherial mesmerising vocal melodies and haunting soundscapes, JenJen’s music is nothing like you’ve ever heard before. Her latest track “Start Over,” taken from her upcoming album Crystal Ocean is in fact a representation of all these elements and even more.
Starting off with low tones that gradually evolved into warped sounds, fragments of beats and spoken phrases, “Start Over” immediately has the ability to transport the listener on a journey. The entry of the middle eastern inspired vocal melody is perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects of this song. Sliding between microtones and creating a luscious ambient soundscape together with the other elements of world music this song establishes a raw and natural earthy sound. With an underlying sense of abstract expression the sound remains mysterious and intriguing throughout. “Start Over” is truly a song that is one of a kind and only an exciting hint of what’s in the album which will be released on December 21st. This is definitely something to look forward to!
