Canadian singer-songwriter Just Chase just dropped his Killing Roses Mixtape, a collection of 10 radio ready bangers. Earlier this week I was lucky enough to witness the listening party at the iconic Platinum Sound Studios in NYC. The event was spectacular and gave me a chance to enjoy the tape with the man himself.
Just Chase originally hails from Nova Scotia, but is currently based out of Toronto, which is being dubbed as a mecca for this RnB sound with heavy hitters like the Weeknd and Majid Jordan. I have seen other sources compare Just Chase to the Weeknd, while you can certainly draw similarities,Just Chase sets himself apart with his own upbeat hypnotic flow and dancehall influence. This tape comes off the back of two major singles EGO and Between Us. The video for EGO is a dreamscape that perfectly captures the aesthetic to the astral soundscape. Killing Roses delivers a soundtrack to love and city fantasy. Every song on the tape would send the dance floor into a sensual frenzy. I find myself rocking the songs Killing Roses, Scene Ting and Know Better, but the tape from top to bottom is heat.
Just Chase is emerging quickly as a major singer, he has star quality and is dropping consistent groove. Killing Roses Mixtape is just the first chapter in an exciting career. Turn down the lights, pull up with a shorty and enjoy!
