Don't Know BOOTS? Here's Why You Should Listen Now

Episode 611 of 811 episodes

BOOTS is the most interesting new artist I've heard in 2015. I first discovered his sound by hearing his production on the FKA twigs album, a record filled with an ever-fascinating, warped and twisted sound. You may have first encountered him writing and producing songs on Beyoncé's self-titled 2013 album. I just recently heard his new album Aquaria, and his mix of sounds, ranging from Bowie to Reznor to hip-hop was so original that I felt compelled to talk with him. So: Meet Jordy Asher, a.k.a. BOOTS.
