Jeremiah Jae has been intent on making 2013 his year. Hardly a month has passed without Jae gracing our homepage with a free mixtape, remix project or cassette. Since the Black Jungle Radio series, Jae has been building towards a big announcement that came today in the form of a signing to Warp.
Most might consider signing with Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder as making it. For Jeremiah Jae, further progress in joining artists like Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Brian Eno on Warp could still not be his idea of the pinnacle.
In true Jae fashion, the announcement is complemented with more free jams. The Bad Jokes mixtape is 9-tracks of Jae's signature woozy-pastiche production, with minor assistance from Jonwayne, Flying Lotus, and Oliver the 2nd. While the tape is best heard – like most Jae things – in full, an early favorite is “Pervert” for Jae's extensive knowledge of Nickelodeon's Doug cartoon.
