Words by Jesse Serwer—
Long before he became an official member of Major Lazer, we already knew Jillionaire as a musical renaissance man who was connecting the dots between the Caribbean and various worldwide electronic music scenes with his remixes, eclectic DJ sets—and the occasional LargeUp listicle. Now, the man we’ve long known as “Trini Chris” is branching back out on his own with the launch of an eclectic new label, Feel Up Records.
The Brooklyn-based imprint officially launches April 22, with the release of Modern Thunder, the debut full-length from Toronto’s Grand Analog. Our partners over at Okayplayer recently premiered “Howl Like Wolves,” a catchy introduction to the kitchen-sink hip-hop sound of Guyanese-Canadian brothers Odario and Ofield Wiliams.
