Jerico is a 22 year old, Haitian-Canadian DJ, producer and vocalist who has quickly been recognized as one of Montreal’s most promising young artists; a wildly inventive producer responsible for unique club abstractions and countless memorable late-nite DJ sets. His energy behind the decks is a welcome jolt to any party, but it’s his talent for blending seemingly disparate styles into one cohesive vibe that sets him apart from his peers. His selector sets draw broadly from African rhythms to contemporary underground club music, while his own productions further enmesh these touchstones with idiosyncratic flourishes. With synths, FX, samples and his own singing in Haitian-Creole, Jerico creates something truly personal and unique. Walls, a dark, complex and contemplative dance floor sparking EP out in April, features the first recorded cuts of Jerico’s vocals and a crushing collaboration with Pelada’s Chris Vargas. We wouldn’t be surprised if this new development takes Jerico out of our reach and deep into the international orbit, so we’re psyched to catch him on the upswing.
