2012 has been a busy and successful year for the man from down under brought to us via Stones Throw, Jonti. But this is no surprise, he was destined for success ever since he worked with Mark Ronson on his band Danimals a few years ago. This year finds Jonti on an extensive tour including opening up for Gotye on his North American tour. Jonti offers up his favorite tracks of 2012 along with some candid stories that each song soundtracked in his Life in 2012.
Asian Dan’s Guest List : Jonti Top 10 of 2012
Everything bout this track is great. There is a truth and confusion of his surrounding’s that hits you over the head. I’ve listened to this nearly everyday since it’s release.
Frikin love this track. From the Grizzly bear sample to every stellar verse, interaction and self shot playful video shot for the song.
Until The Quiet Come’s was instantly my favorite Flying Lotus release of his career so far and thats saying something! Something about the tranquility and focus of it mixed with the bangers was something special to me. Im sure when everyones mind flipped when they heard this for the first time on the short film and saw the now famous accompanying dance.
Jonti debuts Radio Danimals with a 22 minute Summer Mix of tunes that will keep you bobbing and vibing in the sunshine. Enjoy.
The aussie beat monger, Jonti returns to offer up a free album of some early demos and unreleased tracks. For you unfamiliar with Jonti, he was part of the group Danimals, an Australian band that did a track with Mark Ronson. Definitely quite a nice thing to add to a musical resume. Jonti is his solo project that showcases what happens when psychedlic pop songwriting intersects with a head bopping beat aesthetic. “Sine & Moon” remind me of the Bullion “Pet Sounds in the Key of Dee” album that came out a few years ago. I like to think that, Jonti is to Stones Throw Records as Bibio is to Warp Records.
“People liked the songs on the Sine And Moon podcast, so I wanted to get them out for free. So I turned it into an album with extra’s, new mixes and original Jeff Jank Artwork. I really love these songs and I hope you enjoy!” – Jonti
