No more cheesy social media posts, TONS of music , coming out as fast as I can make it, and sets that will help introduce new, fresh, weird music to people who might not hear it otherwise. Back to the basics of what the Jauz Project is all about to me in every way. I’m gonna make 2018 the best year for myself as a person and an artist and I hope you guys come along for the ride.”
