Stones Throw Artist Jonti Lets It “Rain” on New Single [Audio]


Rippling across the independent music scene, Jonti, the Sydney-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, is beginning to sprinkle tracks on us. Starting with “Scrood,” in March, featuring Steve Lacy from The Internet, a track with its modernist retro drum progression and light vocals. With “Rain,” it’s safe to assume an EP or album is on the horizon. The South African born musician’s style is vast, feeding off some of hip hop’s architects such as Madlib and Dilla, and incorporating his own eclectic sounds that would put him in the category of a gentle Flying Lotus, who sings with The Beach Boys‘ influence.

His inventive approach to music can be equated to the types of artists he has worked with. While accompanying Gotye (“Somebody That I Used to Know“) for his 2012 World Tour, Jonti was contacted by Australian electronic music group The Avalanches. They’d heard about his productions on the Aussie circuit, and wanted him to collaborate on their album Wildflower, of which Jonti wrote three songs. Fast forward to now, and Jonti is signed to a joint label deal with Stones Throw and Future Classic with many more collaborations to come.
