Premiere: JAKLYN - Syrup (TRKRNR Remix)

Premiere: JAKLYN - Syrup (TRKRNR Remix)

San Francisco-based soul/pop music artist, JAKLYN has premiered an electro-R&B remix of her song “Syrup.” The song comes from her recent debut, full-length album That One Girl, in which JAKLYN explores themes of navigating through the modern world as a young woman. Inspired by the societal pressures on women to be more docile, “Syrup” is a feminist anthem that will especially resonate with listeners who are still reeling from the results of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

JAKLYN sought out Bay Area producer duo TRKRNR to concoct the remix after hearing their recent album Morning After. The remix is a decidedly modern take on the original 80’s-tinged, electro-funk version. It creatively blends futuristic, ambient sounds over a hip-hop backdrop, complementing JAKLYN’s creative songwriting and personal message.

This track comes in preparation for JAKLYN's Syrup - The Remixes EP, which is slated for release in early 2017. It will include additional remixes from That One Girl’s producer Erik Rico and from Bay Area musician and producer ZEBUEL of the Bay Area collective Smoked out Soul.

"Syrup' is a metaphor for the sexist nonsense that women are fed our whole lives. The damage that this has caused is now painfully evident -- 42% of women in America voted for a misogynist as president. I want my music to reach women on both an emotional and intellectual level, so they will be more acutely aware of double standards when they encounter them." -JAKLYN
