Emerging from the endless summers of Venice, CA to teaming up with Shlohmo, Jonwayne, D33J, RL Grime and more to form the Wedidit crew, Jasper Patterson aka Groundislava has transformed from bashful video gamer to full-fledged composer. The son of Michael Patterson (who directed A-Ha's standout music video "Take On Me" and Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract"), Groundislava has roots that draw from 80s nostalgia, TV and pop culture that grow and transform into the 21st Century aesthetic of electronic music.
Recently tapped for official remixes of Slugabed and Shlohmo as well as Kutmah's Brownswood compilation, Groundislava returns with the 'Feel Me' LP, the follow-up full-length to his self-titled 2011 debut. A mature step for the artist, 'Feel Me' showcases Groundislava's unique sensibilities for developing sweeping soundscapes, luscious backdrops and somber tracks in a distinct sound all his own.
The subdued groove and melancholic melodies of tracks like "Suicide Mission" featuring ghostly vocals from Baths and "Bottle Service" featuring Shlohmo balance the big room dynamics and technicolor soundscape of tracks like "Olympia 2011" and the bass heavy boom of "Cool Party". On others, like "TV Dream" featuring the enigmatic Clive Tanaka, Groundislava composes an ebullient ode to a friendship's inception, soaking it in summery vibes and phantom playfulness.
'Feel Me' is available now on Friends of Friends. Cool to him.
Jerome Potter’s talents first found a home within the electronic duo LOL Boys, a collaborative project sparked via an online message board with likeminded DJ/producer Markus Garcia. Around the same time, Jerome also ignited a relationship with fellow LA resident Samo Sound Boy that devloped into them starting the record label BODY HIGH, a preeminent platform for underground club music in America that’s housed releases from the likes of Todd Edwards, DJ Sliink, DJ Funeral and more.
In September of 2012, after multiple releases under the LOL Boys pseudonym – including the critically acclaimed Changes EP – Jerome and Markus decided to go their separate ways birthing Jerome’s solo enterprise, Jerome LOL.
Since the parting, Jerome LOL’s touring and DIY releases have been essentially non-stop, debuting his innovative “One Day” music series as well as multiple remixes for the likes of Classixx, Tomas Barfod, D33J, and more. With all this under his belt, Jerome LOL is set to make his official debut on Friends of Friends with the four-track EP “Deleted/Fool.” The EP is a continuation of the dualities Jerome explored in his “One Day” series. He shows us how easily he can manipulate satisfaction into melancholy, evoking an array of emotions. “Deleted/Fool” is out now.
