Surprise Release "Same Thing Gengar" (feat. Jordan Barone)

Amanda Giordano

(NY, NJ, CT) Elusive Lofi producer, Gengar Musique has released a chill collaboration with Staten Island artist, Jordan Barone, a remix to Barone’s debut single, “Same Thing”. Officially titled “Same Thing Gengar” (feat. Jordan Barone), the collaboration serves as a fresh perspective on the original single, and comes as the perfect close to the extended summer.

The Gengar Musique Collective and Red Planet Records collaboration comes as a surprise release, although rumors have been stirring since the original “Same Thing” release. Although “Same Thing Gengar” delivers a new, unique vibe for the Lofi niche, the overall sentiment remains unbroken, conveying loneliness, longing, and lust. The Gengar Musique Collective, lead by Gengar Musique, has been releasing Lofi productions for the past year, working at an international level of collaboration. The group of mysterious producers have generated a following on both SoundCloud and Spotify and are most notable for their independently curated Spotify playlists. Jordan Barone’s original “Same Thing” fits into the larger “Midnight Conversation” EP, set to release late 2018, reverberating the theme of love lost to poor timing and ambitions, as an ode to the journey of success. The “Midnight Conversation” EP is made possible (in part) by a DCA Premier Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Jordan Barone is Not like the other kids

"I am not like the other kids because of my willingness to bet it all on my craft. I eat, breath, sleep, dream, and live music. There’s pictures of me at the piano as early as 2 years old. I began producing with my brother at age 9. I was set on this path way before I knew how it would manifest itself in every aspect of my life. 

 

Everyone is entitled to their own version of happiness. For me, this would be to make a living by waking up, walking down to the studio, and creating for the largest portion of my day. I believe this is attainable, and this goal has set me in an organized, yet manic frenzy. 

 

I really took the jump when I began interning as an audio engineer at multiple recording studios in NYC. The city represented the largest of what my dreams could be. I was in rooms with the stars, so close, yet so far. But it drove me, kept me awake for more than 24 hours at a time. 

 

Not much changed when I made the switch to be an artist. I created around the clock. A hummed melody could turn into a full sonata, and no genre could bind me. I could be Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” over Wu-Tang inspired sampled drums. I'd dream of music, wake up, and rush to bring the idea to fruition. I even forget to eat sometimes, that’s how deep I get in it. I’ve been trying to find the balance so that I don’t lose all aspects of a social life, and so that I still spend quality time with family. But to be honest, it’s all just patchwork, and I’m itching until I can create again.

 

I’m sure there are some others like me, but I know they are rare. It's my wish to not only create, but have my inner voice and melodies heard, sometimes playing soft, or sometimes screaming boldly, but one way or another, stating clearly- I am not like the other kids. " - Jordan Barone
