Back in March JSWISS performed his duo set with guitarist Wes Mingus crafting all of the music on guitar and loop pedal for the popular international performance movement Sofar Sounds, their third such performance. As Sofar does from time to time they recorded this high quality video of them performing “Dedicate.LoveSomethin” a favorite of JSWISS fans that also has a stunning music video for the Brady Watt-produced single. Check out the Sofar Sounds video above and if you haven’t already, check out JSWISS’ No Music EP that the single is taken from on all major music platforms.
Earlier this month JSWISS was the featured act at one of the premier jam session in all of New York City, The Jelly. He performed several songs with The Jelly house band led by Kevin Moehringer and featuring other all-star musicians such as Sly5thAve, Lex Sadler, Sydney Driver and more! Check out the video to get a taste of how the night went.

It was a very eventful year for JSWISS, and the likelihood is, whether you were part of the journey at the beginning of the year or joined along the way, you caught a lot, but missed some. Don’t worry, here’s a full recap of the highlights.
JSWISS has a couple of songs featured in the documentary film Hoops Africa premiering internationally on NBA TV on December 24th and 26th. Hoops Africa is a collection of stories that celebrates the past, present, and future of basketball in Africa, spotlighting the sport’s impact on society and its development on the continent. You can watch the trailer for the film, which features several former and current NBA players and officials, right here.
Life is fulfilling when you love something (or someone) enough that you’re willing to deal with all the hardships that might come along with it. That’s the idea behind the song and brand new video for “Dedicate.LoveSomethin” off of JSWISS’ No Music EP.
The music video is directed by Stephen Mucci and edited by John Holowitz, while the song is produced by Brady Watt, one of the first artists on DJ Premier‘s TTT record label and a go-to bassist for the likes of Premier, Talib Kweli and Statik Selektah, both on record and on stage. The visuals feature three incredible athletes: decorated saber fencers and USA Fencing national team members Kamali and Khalil Thompson, as well as Eduard Checo, founder of the Barstarzz, a group of calisthenics fitness enthusiasts with more than 140 million views online on YouTube alone. Enjoy the powerful and beautiful visuals.
