Jaws is a producer and rapper who creates music that features psychedelic, cryptic and mysterious lyrics. His music is music like the 1975 film and fuels it with raw, passionate energy. Between 2018 and 2019 Jaws has released 7 singles and continues to work with different artists to create exciting music. Jaws latest release "Comfort Zone" is an exciting, high energy tune that features drifty synths, massive sounding basses, punchy drums, and cleverly effected vocals that transform and evolve throughout the song.
"Comfort Zone" has a few highlights that immediately stick out, the Reese style bass has a very push and pulls feeling in the song that keeps a dynamic movement keeping your attention. The next highlight is the vocals, every section is effected differently which provides an interesting evolution, the vocals transform from being up close and edgy to being softer like they are in space; this provides a wonderful contrast between the sections. Within the production of the song are intricate well-placed flourishes of ear candy, some of these are Blade Runner-like synths, epic-sounding guitar licks, and accenting adlib vocals. "Comfort Zone" is the perfect tune to sit back to and let the music swim over your mind.

Welcome to BuzzMusic Jaws! Your latest release is very ethereal and evolving! Could you talk to us about the songwriting and production process for it?
Thank you so much. Yeah, sure! I was producing a simple beat at home, I worked on the melody and then I wrote the lyrics. I recorded it and send it to my producer Maso. He worked only on my voice, he made the new beat and sent it back to me. I really liked the way he worked on it, so we called our friend guitarist Libero Benedetti to add more vibes and in less than a week we pre-produced the song in our pre-prod. studio.
We post-produced the single in the Poli Studio Recording.
Your music has quite an interesting style, there are some retro type elements but also completely modern elements, what inspires you to create your style? Do you have other artists you look up to?
I’m still working on my style; I need to find my identity. Everything inspires me; books, music, poetry, documentaries. I really love Kendrick Lamar, the way he uses words and rhythm is incredible. The list is long but I love Slick Rick, Biggie, Kanye West, Jay-Z. They inspire me and motivate me. I also like J.Cole, Travis Scott, Future and Meek Mill.
In your latest single "Comfort Zone" there are a lot of intricate little ear candy bits, like some adlib vocals or guitar lines. At what stage were these created and put into the song and what inspired them to be there? Were they part of the initial writing process or did they come towards the end?
We worked together in the pre-prod. studio. It was all part of the creative process, where Maso led the production. In the end, we only worked on sound design mixing and mastering.
It's definitely a good feeling to be able to release that much music within 2 years, do you have any goals that you are aiming to achieve in 2020?
I work on my music every day. One of my goals is to find my identity and release an album!
