An underground favorite and forerunner of the underground movement in Brooklyn, Jimi Tents is looking to make big moves in 2017. His 2015 debut mixtape 5 O’Clock Shadow left a massive impact on listeners, and marked Jimi as a face to keep an eye on. 2016 saw a quieter year for Jimi, who still released regular singles and a collaborative mixtape with the Sleeprcamp collective.
Disco Jim is back and coming for 2017 with a vengeance. His first single of the year is set to debut tomorrow on Beats 1 Radio via Pigeons and Planes. Jimi brings us the first taste of the single with a one-minute snippet via his twitter, along with the message “everyone needs somebody, idc how tough you think you are.” The song, as of yet without an announced title, brings Tents back over a gliding beat and is full of the overtly conscious and catchy cadences Tents has made his hallmark. Expect Jimi to make an impact on 2017.
Check the teaser here, and tune in to Beats 1 Radio tomorrow night to hear the full track.
