Track of the Day: Lady M – Jume
Today we have one from South African tech house act Lady M. The other week Lady M released her latest track ‘Jume’ as a part of the Katermukke’s beastly KATER150 compilation. While the new compilation features a stacked list of artists including Midas 104, Sven Tasnadi, Nicone, and Dirty Doering, Lady M’s ‘Jume’ stands out as a striking and hypnotic tech house tune. It leads in with powerful kick and sustained droning bass note that instantly suck the listener in. But when that bass note starts bouncing once the verse kicks in and the subtle vocal sample edges in behind the soft stab you can’t help but lose yourself for a few moments. Lots of fun!
