Montreal-based producer/DJ J.u.D. has had quite an expanded online profile as of late, mostly in part due to a viral video - his trap remix of Rihanna’s smash-hit “You Da One”, which has charted over 1.7 million views to date (and is still climbing). Convenient timing. It should draw attention to his original material and latest release, S†. Flower. This seven-track chill, mostly-instrumental set took nearly a year to compose, and the results are stunning; blissed-out and manipulated vocals, cinematic textures, and meticulously crafted, almost organic beats. The gorgeously designed album artwork certainly helps as well. Keep an eye on this producer in 2015.
