Jeshi’s ‘Total 90’ Is A blur-Sampling Mosh Pit Starter

Will Hooper directs the riotous video...

London multi-hyphenate Jeshi has shared new single ‘Total 90’.

A talent who knows how to switch lanes, Jeshi’s 2023 EP ‘The Great Stink’ was a phenomenal display of his lawless creativity. Yet he’s not done there – recent sessions in Paris saw a flurry of songs emerge, and they’re due to land shortly.

Jeshi’s second album is seemingly on the way, and the conceptual king has just unfurled a raucous new single.

‘Total 90’ pilfers the blur riff book, nabbing some chords from ‘Song 2’ before retooling them in a completely different way.

Jeshi comments…

I was in this mental house in Paris with Dom Valentino, Fredwave and Elijah Waters finishing up my 2nd album. We wanted to make something fun and sampling in that way isn’t something we’d done before thought it could be mad. It samples ‘Song 2’ which  has a certain nostalgia which I thought would be cool to turn on it’s head. Meant a lot that blur were into it and gave approval to release the song – all came full circle. 

Director Will Hooper steers the riotous video, “something full of chaos and frantic energy” as Jeshi puts it.

Tune in now.
