Why do we like this?
Hailing from the Southwest of the UK, Ted Jasper’s genre-defying style and laid-back approach are an ever-present balm in everything he produces. “Do Something” is a dreamy, grooving, chilled out track that still has a ton of danceability, and marks his first collaboration with Kay Young and Shaquille-Aaron Keith.
It’s a light and breezy blend of downtempo house, chill-hop and jazz that is gently thought-provoking and deeply heartfelt. It’s a total breath of fresh air and clarity amidst the noise and haste of the modern world.
In a press statement, Jasper says of the track:
“This is a song about starting fresh and moving forward with good intentions, touching on overcoming oppression in different forms, building something new to replace old and not letting anything stand in the way. I wrote this during peak lockdown whilst I was with my girlfriend and my family in Cornwall.”
“Shooting the music video was a dream, Pete came up with the idea of using teenagers as a metaphor for the song, I think young people make a great representation of moving forward from and doing away with aspects of culture that don’t serve us anymore.”
What a beautiful way to usher in the new.
