M.I.S.S. in the Mix: Jade

You know you’re on the come-up when music industry movers-and-shakers such as former Def Jam Creative Director Vashtie Kola are hailing you as a forerunner of the music revolution, or should I say evolution. Jade, 24, had better get used to it, because with the release of her EP It’s My Heart, Cookie, she’s part of a group of young performers set to pioneer the airwaves.

After a brief stint on Pharrell’s Star Trak records, Jade teamed up with producer Precize of G.F.C , the force behind the mixtape’s electro-Hip-Hop feel. With Jade penning the lyrics about a game-spittin’ dude,the EP’s stand-out track “Up and Out” showcases Jade’s sweet and haunting voice riding the beat’s highs and lows. Another track, the New-Wave influenced “Take the Hit” featuring underground rapper Theophilus London, proclaims her desire to open up to the wounds of love. Mellower, “Beautiful Problems” talks about appeasing your lover even when they aren’t always right!

Besides being an indie-darling-in-training, Jade’s visuals fit right in with our mantra here at M.I.S.S—sexy with a touch of street. Peep her  promo video for a glimpse of her style game—everything is on-point, from the arty-glasses to her Violette T !

Doing it up on the fashion front, Jade sings with honesty and vulnerability about the ups-and-downs of love and finding your way in life, which we can all feel. Look for her to blow up sometime soon, and get a taste of her sound with a free download of It’s In My Heart, Cookie.

We Got The Beat: Chester French


Tear this condom widget open to make whoopee with the music of Star Trak’s latest signing, the futuristic power-pop duo Chester French. Consisting of friends and former Harvard students, D.A. Wallach and Max Drummey, Chester French seeks to prove that pop music can be at once challenging and accessible. Their music is a whirlwind of audible treats, from pop to rock, swing to hip-hop bling, and a touch of outer space-like you’ve been sucked into a wormhole – these guys have stepped into the scene in a big way, first by attracting a bidding war between Kanye West, Jermaine Dupri, and Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine, and then lauded by the press with features in Spin’s Who’s Next ‘08 and Rolling Stone’s Artists To Watch.

Get a free Mp3 download of their track She Loves Everybody here, and after the jump, check out an introductory video on the group, as well some streaming audio of She Loves Everybody, remixed by Steve Aoki, and the Neptunes, and The Jimmy Choos, remixed by Definitive Jux kingpin El-P.
