Jutty Ranx's modern, international take on electronic, soul, and dance on their new LP Discordia is certain to appeal to fans of Daft Punk and Chromeo.
A collaboration between American singer Justin Taylor, Finnish producer Jaako Manninen (of Beats and Styles notoriety), and multi-instrumentalist and producer Ryan Malina, Jutty Ranx scored a surprise European hit in 2012 with “I See You”, which went double platinum in Italy and topped seven million views on YouTube. Three years later they’re set to release Discordia, an ebullient blast of R&B-tinged EDM, whose modern, international take on soul and dance is certain to appeal to fans of Daft Punk and Chromeo, and which we’re more than pleased to premiere here today.
“Discordia came together as an album over the course of a year where we were touring a lot, writing and recording in Los Angeles and random studios in Europe whenever we had a chance,” the band tells PopMatters. “It encompasses happiness and sadness, longing for a past that is gone and simultaneously a future that doesn't exist, and trying to find reason in everything as much as trying to experience things without question.”
