After touring with The Avalanches in 2017 on some of the biggest stages around the world, Jonti is back after a new single call “Scrood.” The track features rising kid-genius Steve Lacy, the 17-year-old producer from The Internet.
Jonti previously released two back to back albums on Stones Throw: Twirligig (2011) shortly followed up by Sine and Moon (2012).
Jonti on “Scrood” : “‘Scrood’ was born out of a late night jam with Steve Lacy in Los Angeles last June … when I took it home I envisioned a story to go with it of a man walking through a burning city to get to this person he loves. Which is a metaphor, saying that even though it feels like the world is falling apart, I’m still going to try do my best and soldier forward with love.”
