Over the years Adam Stivala, better known as Jerk Boy has graced the Sydney scene with his fresh take on house music. Now the producer has teamed up with fellow Sydney vocalist, The Baroness for their release on Tinted Records ‘Satellite’. The Baroness’ powerful vocals are recognizable from Beth Yen’s ARIA chart-topping hit ‘Ocean feat. The Baroness’ and as the official touring vocalist for prolific Australian duo, Peking Duk.
With a lazy day at the beach in mind Jerk Boy, wrote ‘Satellite’ which seamlessly blends a classic RnB vocal with jazzy synths, to create Jerk Boy’s signature house sound. Lyrically, the track tells the story of the challenges of trying seeing eye to eye with someone when you are just not on the same page.
Jerk Boy talks about how the song came together, “I wanted a song I could listen to when I’m being a lazy swimming crab at Clovelly beach on a hot summer day. I made a beat but then I needed a vocal, so I reached out to Michaela. I loved her enthusiasm for the track and her amazing work ethic, in the blink of an eye she wrote and sang such a great vocal.”
Jerk Boy has already has been endorsed by various notable artists such as Black Madonna, Groove Armada, Claptone and Weiss. On top of this, the Sydney artist has also received support from triple j, DJ Mag Radio, BBC Radio 1 and Oliver Heldens’ ‘Heldeep’.
