Jai Wolf, AKA Sajeeb Saha, will be sharing his light and sound visions at The Vogue Theatre Wednesday, April 24, 2019. Born in Bangladesh but mostly raised in Long Island, his influence comes from EDM, hip hop, and early 00s bands like The Strokes and Phoenix, with more than a pinch of his parents’ Bollywood collection.
Jai Wolf was discovered from relative obscurity by EDM kingmaker Skrillex. His song “Indian Summer” streamed tens of millions of times and was #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart. Jai Wolf just released his debut album The Cure To Loneliness on April 5 via Mom + Pop Records (Courtney Barnett, Sunflower Bean).
On the new album, sonically all of Sajeeb’s eclectic influences can be heard. Lyrically though, the album is quite personal, with themes of searching for connection - whether to culture or people - from someone who was not only born in a very foreign land, but also moved around constantly.
Mom + Pop mixmaster Hotel Garuda will open for Jai Wolf at The Vogue.
Doors are at 8:00; show starts at 9:00
