Emerging Hip Hop artist Jaxx James hails from Phoenix, Arizona, where he synthesizes his newfound passion for music and applies it to his recent creations. Jaxx James is bringing interesting components into the rap scene we know and hear today, mainly with his production stylings. The production of his tracks sounds unique to anything we've heard before from Hip Hop and Rap artists. There's undoubtedly a raw element to the vocal outflow of Jaxx James, which we know is due to his fresh perspective in the music world. With the release of his album "Neon Cowboy", Jaxx James presents his artistic capabilities to his new listening base!
Jaxx James has come out with his track "Red Velvet" right from his album "Neon Cowboy". This particular track off the record has integrated a distinctive autotune, but in a way where it fits in well with the production. You know some rap tracks that obsessively incorporate autotune and it feels completely fabricated? We don't get that feeling at all with Jaxx James, and especially not in "Red Velvet". The track itself has a consistent beat with elements of the flute embedded within the production, which we found to attribute to the overall ambiance of the track incredibly well. "Red Velvet" is Jaxx James' track that's a little more rambunctious and energized than what the other tracks off of his album have to offer. We suggest you check out the work of Jaxx James if you're a fan in the Hip/Hop and Rap music scene!

Just having an open mind. I believe all music is a beautiful art. It's important as artists to listen to all types of music.

Yes, I'm aiming for a late summer release maybe in July. I've definitely learned from a few mistakes and this album will show a lot of growth this summer. Get ready for an all-new Jaxx!
