JASON ADENUGA: Sand Ocean

JASON ADENUGA: Sand Ocean

If you were ever wondering what the little snippet at the end of Text Me Back on Konnichiwa was then look no further. In an interview with DJ Semtex Skepta revealed that he used three of his youngest brother Jason (Adenuga)'s beats for the project. Thanks to a tweet by JME we were able to locate the featured track Sand Ocean. Jason, the youngest of the four Adenuga siblings, is also an artist (you can check out some of his work here), as well as a producer.   Speaking to Hypetrak Skepta also touched on how his brother helped him decide upon the title of the album:

It basically all started with my little brother, Jason, who's currently in Japan. His whole life, he's been obsessed with everything related to Japan. Whether it is computer games, the language, style, or lifestyle. My brother and I, we have a good relationship, so we sat down together to come up with an idea for the title. Initially, we were going to make a whole 8-bit computer game-type of album, but as time went on, different things happened and different people came to collaborate. The sonic direction of the album has changed a bit, so it’s even more amazing to see to what it has ultimately become.
