Jack Trades is born and based in Calgary, Canada. As a dynamic and constantly evolving producer, his sound draws parallels to the likes of Kaskade, Martin Solveig and Gryffin.
‘Phantoms’ opens with a slow, breathy elegance as it sets the stage for an epic love song. Taking an unexpected turn to a bass-heavy, thrumming dancefloor single and another turn back towards a romantic serenade, the two artists manage to meld the unique styles into a unique, pop laden track. Exploring the autumn of a relationship and infusing the sound with a gentle familiarity, the single marks itself as one to find in a club where the dancers desperately seek to lose themselves in the beat.
Jack Trades tells us about the creation of the single: “Kayrae and myself wanted to do a follow up on “Sideways” and knew, in terms of storytelling, that we wanted to talk about the next chapter of what really happened after being in a relationship that had no future. ‘Phantoms’ is a song about going through emotions of separation and that sooner or later we’ve all got to let go of our past. The result is something very different and unique, potentially shaping the future of the “Jack Trades” sound moving forward.”
Kayrae tells us about the concept of the single: “‘Phantoms’ is the continuation of a love lost, the lingering uncertainty that haunts the restless heart. A letter written to the ghost of what once was…”
