‘Chasin’ Time’ draws on Jake’s versatile tastes and spectrum of musical influences. Moving away from his known tropical style in 2016, Jake has teamed up with formidable singer LKA to create a song combining epic synth surges with fulfilling drums beats to create an emotional experience. Alongside the distinctive yet mesmerising vocals of LKA, this latest musical instalment is set to separate him from crowd.
Taking inspiration from Flume, Jake has mastered various musical routes. Classically trained from the age of 10, the young producer’s passion and enthusiasm for every facet of music is what gives his songs their depth.
LKA explains of the track,
“I’ve always been a dreamer. Throughout my life I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate artistically with a wide scale of talented individuals. The only problem was that slowly, but surely, I began to listen to what everyone else was saying and didn’t take any time to think about how I wanted to present my art. I was told what my sound was, what kind of lyrics I should write and what kind of clothes I should wear, etc. For a while, I wanted to blame others. However, now as I look back, I realise that the only person I can blame for the mistakes that I have made is myself. I was the one who was actually holding myself back. I could have, so many times, gone with my gut, but I didn’t. I don’t regret a single experience that I have been through, because I believe that every moment along the way has been a valuable lesson for what lies ahead. We should all take a long, hard look in the mirror before we try to find the fault in others.
As soon as I heard Jakes incredible production, the lyrics and melody began to tumble out and I was absolutely inspired. I feel like our collaboration has been one of the most inspiring experiences that I have had in a long time, and I’m really thankful!
Now, as I have processed a lot of what I have been through so far, I feel like I’m at a point where I am done “chasin’ time gone by”, and instead, I want to take one step at a time towards whatever is next.”
