One of our favorite producers in Jai Wolf took to Instagram to celebrate the one year anniversary of his The Cure To Loneliness album. Jai Wolf highlighted the central themes from his album that are even more relevant today than they were when the album was first released: Isolation, loneliness, and self-reflection.
Jai Wolf worked hard to perfect his craft. It started when he remixed Skrillex’ Easy My Mind in 2015. Then Odesza signed him to their record label. We love The Cure to Loneliness so much because Jai Wolf was given the artistic freedom to release an album on his terms.
The Cure to Loneliness has a distinct sound. It has this interesting retro and 80’s vibe that isn’t found in Jai Wolf’s music before or after his album release. The distinct sound or vibe is the artistic part of the album. Jai Wolf created an album that we can still replay a year later and be smiling ear to ear.
With just one album Jai Wolf helped us in the past and now in the present. His album originally resonated with being single and fighting for a connection. That idea shape-shifted and developed a whole new meaning. The Cure To Loneliness now can resonate with the loneliness we feel from social distancing and self isolation. Jai Wolf gave us the cure and his words will stick with us,
“if you’re ever feeling lonely during this quarantine, just know that this record will always be there for you.”
Here’s the ad-blurb, please listen to The Cure to Loneliness.
We feel lucky to have experienced Jai Wolf’s live tour for his album. If you missed out in 2019 Jai Wolf is bringing back his live show in August and September. We hope he will find a way to reschedule his Seattle show.
Meanwhile we will keep racking up plays of The Cure To Loneliness album. Thank you to Jai Wolf for sharing. We want to know how much you have listened to the album, reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter!
