Jesse Boykins III Explores Synergy On ‘Go With The Feeling’

"It's about the laws of attraction..."

Jamaican-American artist Jesse Boykins III offers up another taste of his new album, in the form of a dancehall-inflected ode to chemical attraction, ‘Go With The Feeling’.

Following previous single ‘Honestly I’m A Threat’, ‘Go With The Feeling’ was produced with fellow GRAMMY-nominated producer Wynne Bennet (Janelle Monae, HAIM, Talya and NAZ, and is a piece of primal dimensional soul benefiting from synergy between all three.

Reflecting on ‘Go With The Feeling’, Jesse Boykins III shares: “When Wynne and I started the sonic direction, it felt like a journey and was very free-flowing (I was on shrooms). Once we felt the rhythms and soundscapes become one, it became apparent to me that it’s a blend of three things – an indie approach to recording, dancehall and basement influences, and this refreshing arrangement – that brings it all together.”
