Last Saturday, June 23, JSWISS performed with his band at the beautiful new Brooklyn venue National Sawdust as part of the popular monthly series there, The Revolution. Thrown into the mix was special guest violinist Rini and it was definitely a special performance. Check out the recap on YouTube, shot by Shuhei Hayashi.
JSWISS’ powerful and inspirational music video for “Dedicate.LoveSomethin” off of his critically-acclaimed No Music EP was just selected for the 2018 Hip Hop Film Festival in Harlem, New York City this summer. The video is directed by Stephen Mucci, edited by John Holowitz and stars USA Fencing athletes Kamali and Khalil Thompson as well as Barstarzz founder Eduard Checo. The song is produced by producer/bassist Brady Watt (DJ Premier, Ski Beatz). For more info about the festival in August, click here.
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.
