LA-based producer JSTJR (pronounced “gesture”) has teamed up with UNIIQU3 and ma-LESS for a soundtrack that will definitely get your weekend started. Dubbed Never Squad Down, the three-track EP is packed with plenty of hard-hitting beats for you and your girl gang. Kicking off the album is the UNIIQU3-featured track that the mini-record is named after — an infectious song injected with dancehall beats and anthem-like lyrics.
Here’s what JSTJR had to say about the project:
Never Squad Down started as something to keep everyone from heading home early (aka ‘squadding down’), but over time the meaning kind of transformed. ‘Squad’ became less about our small group of friends and more a universal expression for being good to one another, being present, caring for others and helping out your fellow humans.
JSTJR, UNIIQU3 and ma-LESS will be performing at this year’s SXSW festival. If you aren’t able to make it, don’t worry — you can catch the trio for the Never Squad Down EP release party in LA tonight – check out more details here.You can listen to the full EP in the playlist above. Squad up.
