His love for music runs deep and after discovering the House scene, his path changed forever. ‘Poetic Justice‘ was a mysterious, tribalistic dance track with enticing vocal samples. ‘Poetic Justice’ has been a talking point in the scene so we caught up with Jacob Colon to find out some behind the scenes info!
How would you sum up ‘Poetic Justice’ to someone who hasn’t heard it yet?
The vibe of this song is based around the vocal section. The idea was to make the vocal sound warm and mysterious.
What was your inspiration behind the track?
Spoken word poetry. There’s often soft music in the background when someone is saying a poem at spoken word events in New York. This is how I started the song. I created a chord progression behind the vocal as it played through.
What were your goals going into creating this track?
No specific goal in mind. I just wanted to create a warm vibe that listeners can rock with.
You’ve had a few releases with Made 2 Move Records, what is it like working with them?
Excellent. There is nothing but positive energy circulating throughout the team. As we accomplish small steps, bigger doors are opening.
Who could you see supporting ‘Poetic Justice’?
This is a tough question. I don’t have a particular DJ in mind. Djs who touch on any house/progressive/tribal styles may dig this song.
Do you have a favourite section of the track?
The second breakdown when I lower the pitch of the vocal.
Have you got any collaborations on the horizon?
I will be working with my boys Sted-E and Hybrid Heights very soon. I can’t wait to get into the studio with these guys. Can someone say another Billboard collab?
Finally, where can people go to grab their copy?
All music platforms.
