With his roots in Assam, northeast India, and his hustle now based in Brooklyn, the psychedelic
soul-savant known as jitwam. will officially drop his second album on Tartelet Records in May
2019. To mark its release, a music video to the album’s opener “busstop” was shot in the
exhilarating city of Mumbai across three days.
Of everywhere and nowhere, jitwam’s music draws influence from a litany of iconoclasts
including, but not limited to RD Burman, Moondog, The Velvet Underground, Yayoi Kusama,
Jay Electronica, Jay Dilla, Moodymann, Leon Thomas, Madlib and Asha Bhosle.
Utilising knowledge acquired through years spent digging through dusty crates, and talents
honed as a multi- instrumentalist, producer, and vocalist, HONEYCOMB frees jitwam from any
parameters of a dance floor 12-inch. It blasts open the doors for an artist who fuses musical
identities and stitches together ideas into some of the warmest music you’ll hear all year.
HONEYCOMB follows jitwam’s well-received EPs on his own imprint, The Jazz Diaries, which
secured him a spot on Moodymann’s DJ Kicks compilation, as well as a steady string of gigs
that took his talents from a country-wide NTS-Radio tour in India, to shows in Europe and the
US, where he opened for legendary jazz-funk artist Roy Ayers.
