R&B/Neo-soul singer-songwriter JustChasedrops new single “Between Us”. This is the second release from the Nova Scotia native following his hit track “EGO” earlier this year, along with the official music video release last month.
WondaGurl, S.L.M.N, and Yonatan Watts provide the shape-shifting instrumental on the track, which was distributed through Empire. In June 2017, the indie artist signed his publishing deal with Pulse Music Group, and also heads his own company Save Our Soul.
Known within musical circles as “The Melody King,” JustChase‘s artistry is seeped with the influences of ‘90s and early 2000s soul makers like Jodeci, Dru Hill, Tank and Tyrese. His music infuses smooth traditional ideologies with futuristic soul and a daring spirt for a new-age flavor captivating Canadian audiences. Apart from being an artist, justchase takes passion in writing and contributing to other artist music as a songwriter.
In addition to the premiere, we’ve had the chance to sit with JC to talk about the song:
Hi Chase, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve been tremendous, and how about yourself?
Can you talk to us more about your latest single Between Us ?
Between Us is more like a Hood Fairytale. More less when your in a relationship and you want to keep everything on the hush hush.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Basically I was in a double relationship where I loved one girl more than the other which drove me and inspired me to write this song, because the whole time one of them knew about the other , but she always kept all of our secrets to herself. A lot of the songs I write about are based on my real life experiences in and out of the streets.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
“Big Time”, we are basically in the process of working on the treatment for music video as we speak.
How was the recording and writing process?
Amazing, I recorded the whole song in 8 hours, I was going through a lot of mixed emotions that day and this is just how it turned out because I don’t write music everything came off the top of my head, based on a true story and this is how the song turned out.
What role does Nova Scotia play in your writing?
Nova Scotia plays a major role in my writing. The whole culture and my whole life and past experiences comes from there is inspiring.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – hows that coming along?
Yes most defineitly, The EP is done and just waiting for its time to be released but everything is timing, but for now I plan on dropping my mixtape on November 12th 2017, “A whole lotta music coming your way”.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Mixtape drops November 12th, 2017 called “Killing Roses” and EP I can’t really give you that date right now 🙂
What aspect of the 90s and 00s soul music will you get to explore on this record?
You will probably hear a bit of old school vocals mixed in with a whole lotta new sound.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, we plan on doing a full north american radio promo tour in support of my other single “EGO” next month.
What else is happening next in Just Chases world?
Just steady working out, spending as much time as I can with my family and focused on my music.
