NEW MUSIC: JAI WAETFORD & MANSUS | OPTIONS
Jai Waetford & Mansus have to be one of the best duos for making fire music, and their new record "Options" is an automatic hit. Although I haven’t heard much from the artists, you can tell the chemistry is on point, and their vocal performances are both powerful. Sonically, the beat begins with smooth cadences and the rumble of trap 808s meshed with island melodies. As it progresses, we are introduced to one of the most infectious hooks of the year, and I must say I still hear the hook in my head as we speak. Although the singing is very in the pocket, the consistency from both artists is very noticeable, and there are no dull moments in this record. The Australian pop singer and songwriter came third on the fifth season of "The X Factor Australia." He subsequently signed with Sony Music Australia and released his debut single "Your Eyes," which peaked at number six on the ARIA Singles Chart. Waetford's self-titled debut EP was released in December 2013. In addition, Waetford joined the Australian soap opera "Neighbours" in February 2016 as Angus Beaumont-Hannay.
