Jaw Gems, an electronic outfit from Portland, Maine, is a collective of young, experimental producers bringing beat-music – traditionally programmed and played on samplers – to a live band setting. The mesmerizing result is a harmonic convergence.

Combine legendary beat-makers like J Dilla and Flying Lotus with indie rock and electronic icons like Deerhunter and Washed Out, then add Radiohead’s dreamy ambience and you begin to approach the sound of Jaw Gems. Electronic musician, Daedelus says “Jaw Gems have done the magic trick of delivering a thoroughly listenable instrumental album that you can also sing along to.”


Where does JAW GEMS’ music come from? The answer is not so simple. Sure, there's the still-young tradition of too-talented musicians expanding and refracting the genres of funk and hip-hop through prisms of indie electronica, erudite jazz, and abstracted, homemade boom-bap.
