Jai Paul



  • Does anyone know what happened to this guy? He signs to XL, drops two of the most insane tracks I've heard in my life (BTSTU, Jasmine), has his album 'leak', and subsequently disappears forever.

    Him and his brother put out these two productions for new artists last year, I think.

    My theory is that he was never the brains behind his music. If you listen to his brothers songs (AK Paul). They sound the exact same as Jai’s music.

    As Jai faded into the background, A.K. came forward and started working a lot as a producer and also as a solo artist



  • @Mavis I have heard this theory but I don't know if I buy it. Jai seems to be a very skilled pianist and his productions have always been super crazy. His brother seems to be a very skilled guitarist but his stuff is very rooted in traditional soul music. They seem a lot less crazy. The second and tenth songs on the leak are two of the most radical pop songs I have ever heard in my entire life and I don't know if any of his brother's stuff is as crazy.

    Anyhow, thanks for the response. I appreciate it.
