J-Felix Releases “CHECK” Single Feat. El Train

Producer and multi-instrumentalist Joe Newman, otherwise known as J-Felix, returns with his future blend of boogie, p-funk, disco and soul on his sophomore album Whole Again Hooligan, out March 6 on Tru Thoughtsand releases the heavily-sampled single “Check” featuring El Train – listen + share here. 

“The tune came together really naturally, El Train came to my studio in Brighton, had some lunch, jammed for a few hours, swapping instruments”, 
J-Felix explains“The track started off with a simple drum loop, I then played the bassline on one of Joe’s many analog synths. It was all pretty organic from there, just building up the track and adding elements until we thought it was done”, El Train adds.

“Check” follows lead-single and tough-love anthem “Mind Up,” which features signature soul legend Andrew Ashong.  The track is the creative result of a self-re-sampling technique used by J-Felix and Brighton producer El Train, hoping to create a more unique electronic sound.
