Jxckson is back. Regular readers of The Static Dive will likely recognize the name. He is a singer, songwriter and dancer from Austin, Texas with a knack for writing eclectic Pop songs that are both catchy and a lot of fun.
First came the Alt-Pop gem, “Icarus” in November of last year. That was a snarky break-up song in which we laughed along with him as he took his ex down a notch. February brought his follow-up single, the dark and dramatic “Keep Watching.” That track had a sexy premise and a murderous video. Jxckson is an adventurous musician who is not bound by any particular style. However, he says his artistry is fueled by his love for the late ’90s/early 2000 Pop music scene and a 12-year obsession with K-Pop.
“Mango” is Jxckson’s latest single. True to form, the track is funky, sexy and a lot of fun. This time he found inspiration in Jamaican music. Over a hot Dancehall beat and a low, bouncing synth bass line he taunts his future lover’s current partner. Although he treats genre as a moving target, humor is a constant presence in his songs. He’s a funny guy who delivers his best lines with a smirk. For instance, the title of the song is a play on words. Just before each chorus kicks into a bangin’ Reggaeton rhythm, Jxckson drops the line, “I think it’s about time that you let your man go.”
More than a snack, I’m a full course meal.Jxckson
