Jern Eye, coming strong off the release of his new album Vision, has teamed up with producer BOAC for a remix of the album’s first single official single, “Get Down” featuring fellow West Coast emcee Z-Man!. The track doesnâ€™t stray from the up-tempo style that the original brought forth, but does have its own flavor. BOAC stuck to playing everything himself, avoiding samples on his version, which gives the remix a live feel. A funky synthesizer and piano melody are prevalent throughout the song with added percussion rhythms to fill out the beat. BOAC had this to say about the remix version, “The original ‘Get Down’ is real fresh. Keelay and Zaire produced the perfect funky beat for Jern Eye, who killed it lyrically. I like the challenge of taking a classic song and flipping the vibe completely. I was almost finished with it, when I realized Z-Man would sound dope on it. I played it for Z, he was feeling it and the rest is history.” Z-Man! also delivered a stellar verse that shines on the track in it’s own right. Z-Man!’s tongue twisting flow doesnâ€™t bore the listener at all as he raps, “I’m a human cartoon makin’ moves and keep a sharp tongue through these dizzy interviews, rippin’ anyone of you’s, I’m a real rapper-the ill rapper that’ll kidnap the kidnappers kidnapper.” Make sure to check out Jern Eye’s newest release Vision now available everywhere via MYX Music Label.
Los Angeles native Jern Eye began crafting his skills early on at freestyle battles in famous L.A. clubs. Jern formed the staple west coast group, Lunar Heights, with friend and fellow emcee Spear Of The Nation shortly after high school, and the group eventually migrated north to Oakland to join the Bay Area’s flourishing independent hip-hop scene. Once in the Bay, the group was joined by Khai Sharrieff as they began making a name for themselves opening for a number of well known groups, including Crown City Rockers, The Pharcyde, The Procussions, and more. The group subsequently released their solo effort, Crescent Moon, to high acclaim. Jern followed three years later with his solo debut, Authentic Vintage, in 2006, and toured with Hieroglyphics and Living Legends as a result of the album’s success. Jern Eye’s sophomore album, Vision, features production from !llmind, Jake One, Keelay & Zaire, DJ Vinroc, Def Supreme, Phil Jahns, and Artek, and collaborations with artists Cali Agents, Mistah F.A.B., Zion I, Guilty Simpson, Nightclubber Lang, and more looks to make the case for Jern’s upward movement as a legitimate hip-hop talent on a national level. Vision is available now via MYX Music Label.
