London producer, Jonathan Mensah better known as JAE5 releases his debut single Dimension featuring Mavin star, Rema and grime legend, Skepta. Rema delivers a melodious hook while Skepta spits heat on his verse. JAE5 fusion of HipHop and Afrobeat brings a fresh vibe with it. Dimension is sizzling with melody, bars and talent.
The East London Genre blender gained notoriety for being behind J Hus’ albums. He just won a Grammy award for his work on Burna Boy’s Twice as Tall project. Only 24, this producer is out to take the world by storm with his perfect blends.
Addressing members of the press on his first single, the artist said;
For my first single, I wanted to pull off something that represented me well. It had to be heavily influenced by Afrobeats and the UK urban scene. Skepta & Rema are the perfect combination.
The East London Producer of Ghanaian origin describes Dimension as a love letter to his home nation and that is where its visuals are shot. Directed by Ebenezer Blanche, the video blends ancient scenes with futuristic poses. In one scene, we see men draped in native wrappers and the next scene, big cars buzzing with neon lights. From women wrapping their hair in native thread to urban outfits paired with astronaut like glasses and headgears, the story fluctuates between the ancient and the future. This it is able to achieve with colourful imagery.
