Mix Of The Week: Wave Point
Formerly producing as half of Golf Clap, Detroit-based DJ and producer Bryan Jones further steps into his new production moniker as Wave Point with the release of “In The Moment.”
The single is one of several releases ahead of Jones’ forthcoming debut album Higher Dimension, which will drop in August via his own label Even Smoother.
The quiet of quarantine spurred the launch of his solo Wave Point project, where Jones is the mastermind behind this new sound serving up slick, soulful grooves. Like most of Higher Dimension, the single “In The Moment” is a product of a virtual collaboration with musicians from around the world that contributed to the track’s funky bass guitar, live drums, and original vocals.
Being stuck in quarantine meant Wave Point had to get creative with securing session players for the album. He went online and hired bass players, string quartets and a myriad of other musicians from around the world who he had never even met, making Higher Dimension a showcase of an artist in total control.
Higher Dimension mixes classic house nostalgia with futuristic techniques and lofi feeling. Its disco-laced tunes shine bright with organic sounds and that comforting human touch, and the debut album plays funky with instrumental fills and warm textural layers.
Through the Golf Clap project and its Country Club Disco label and radio shows, Wave Point won the hearts of fans at Lollapalooza, Movement, Electric Forest and more. Wave Point has already released a few album singles “Feeling” and “Shadows”.
To give a glimpse of his favourite house songs, Wave Point takes over this Week’s “Mix Of The Week”.
