20-12-2011 // interviews: Interview with Jhameel

As a "Farewell 2011"-series i have tried to get a little interview with the bands/artists that have made this a memorable musical year for me (and hopefully for you). Most of the bands i got in contact with responded very sweet and they have been so kind to answer a few questions about their 2011 and off course about their plans for the year to come, these will be posted in December every few days.

One of the most talented musicians I've come across in this last year is Jhameel. His album "The Human Condition" has brightened many dull days at work, making me instantly dance around the office. Being the extremely productive musician he is, he recently released 5-track EP "Waves". When comparing this EP with the album you can hear the progress he's making and when it comes to breakthroughs for the year to come, Jhameel is on top of my list. The songs are extremely powerfull & danceable, yet he also proves to be able to slow down a bit, as he does in one of my personal favourites "Songs Of Religion" from "The Human Condition". It seems there's not a lot this man can't do and it's probably very clear that I'm a BIG fan. Can't wait for new material, which luckely he releases in a fast pace!

Listen to that recently released "Waves"-EP right here (and download it for free), while you read what Jhameel has to say about 2011.

If you had to name one moment, what would you consider your highlight of 2011?
For me it was finishing my latest release, WAVES. I recently released a song a week for five weeks, and it was really stressful making sure the release went smoothly, but everything went better than expected.

What are you doing at the moment?
working on a cover of "My Girls" by Animal Collective

Which great band or artist did you discover yourself in 2011?
Penguin Prison is one of my favorite recent discoveries

Any favourite albums?
Plans by Death Cab for Cutie

How will you celebrate New Year’s Eve?
In the city with good friends :)

What are your plans for the new year?
I'm planning on releasing a new music series, two music videos, and touring during the summer.

- Thx Jhameel for the interview!
