Redman and Jayceeoh‘s 1000VOLTS project is here to turn your summer all the way up. The hip-hop/EDM crossover duo have unleashed an EP titled Power Up comprised of four records that bring forth the movement that is 1000volts.
With Redman (real name Reginald Noble) being an OG in the rap game and Jayceooh (real name Jake Osher) being a producer and world-renowned turntablist, the two’s synergy and energy when combined remain unmatched. It’s Noble’s lyricism, punchlines, and bars that smooth over Osher’s trapped-out, bass-heavy production that leave listeners in a frenzy.
It was after a random encounter overseas in Croatia that the two linked up and began messing with each other’s music. In 2015, Jayceooh enlisted the East Coast spitter on his breakout hit “Turn Me Up Some” — the rest was history.
The duo aim to bridge the gap between hip-hop and dance music, while creating fun, friendly bangers for audiences all around the world. In an exclusive interview with EDM.com Osher stated, “The purpose of Power Up is for fans get a feel for the raw energy we are bringing to the live stage. Big music with one of the most iconic rappers to ever grace the mic. One you hear the music and envision it in the live space it should click, like ‘okay.’ This shit is going to slap live.”
In terms of the recording process, it was a long one. “We took our time to craft all these songs to display what we’re all about,” Osher stated. “We’ve had many hilarious moments throughout. One of my favorites I still laugh about to this day is when we finished ‘Get Some.’ We were at my studio and recorded a fun little video of us rocking to the song. A few bars into the rap, Redman punched the shit out of the mixer. We had to stop, I couldn’t stop laughing. Still cracks me up.(laughs)”
