J£ZUS MILLION, or Joesph Zucco to his friends, is a prodigious young Boston based beatmaker who began to turn heads last year when his debut single ‘Illusions Of’ featuring global pop sensation Charli XCX dropped on Double Denim. He quickly followed this up with his acclaimed Cold Shoulder mixtape which featured the sweet vocal talents of YADi and Chicago drill rap princess Sasha Go Hard, and went on to produce several tracks on Miss XCX’s acclaimed debut album.
A self-professed suburban boy with influences from Philip Glass to Gucci Mane via Bjork and Brian Eno; Joe’s music was described by the Guardian as “not so much chopped and screwed as chopped and chilled” (New Band of the Day). His sterling productions have also drawn praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Noisey and DAZED, who called his music “R&B scattered with pockets of light”, while FACT have drawn favourable comparisons to Rustie and Two Inch Punch.
Zucco creates kaleidoscopic sounds and at times the most haunting of top line melodies that effortlessly hold your attention, and so it comes as no surprise that your favourite rapper is probably trying to buy a beat off him right now – stay tuned for some serious collaborations.
