Jaw Gems is an electronic foursome based in Portland, Maine, crafting complex and groovy instrumental vibes — they call it “drip hop” — from their drums, bass, and keys combo. Forged under the heavy influence of a shared love for J Dilla, they worked it out on a weekly basis at a local bar as their chops and fan base grew and the road came calling. They can throw down on a rhythm for hours and make it sound fresh each time through, revealing new layers to their understated musical intensity with every round. Get down with them in this session, recorded at the dank basement studio at Serious Business Music in DUMBO. Heatweaver by Jaw Gems is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
