English DJ and record producer Jax Jones has made a name for himself on the mainstream music scene ever since his second single, “You Don’t Know Me” with British singer RAYE, debuted at #1 on the U.K. Dance Singles Chart in December 2016. 

Following several more singles, including his second #1 hit, “Breathe” with American singer Bebe Rexha, his debut EP, Snacks, was released in November 2018, and originally included five tracks before three more singles were added to the tracklist in mid-July, expanding the EP to nine tracks.

The Head of Marketing at Polydor Records, Stephen Hallowes, explained the purpose behind this decision in an interview with Music Week, stating:

“[More songs were added to Snacks to] reimagine [the project] as an ever-evolving playlist that would update on an on-going basis and eventually culminate in a full album release with extra songs…[with the] main purpose [being] to create one destination for fans to listen to all of [Jones’] hits, but it also enabled us to start building an album story with him over time, which felt like a good strategy for an artist much stronger in the singles market than albums.”

In early September, Snacks was reissued as Jones’ debut studio album, retitled Snacks (Supersize), and includes the nine songs from the EP in addition to six brand new tracks, including the highly anticipated “This Is Real” with English singer-songwriter Ella Henderson, which was originally teased in 2017 as “Real” and featured vocals from American singer Selena Gomez.

Predominantly comprised of upbeat electro house and dance tracks, Snacks (Supersize) is the perfect party record. The lead single, “Jacques” with Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo, is a seductive electro house bop about a one-night stand that also appears on her new album, Sunshine Kitty, with a tasty beat that makes you want to get up and dance!

Jones described the album’s tracks as “musical snacks”, hence the title, and every song has a corresponding grocery product design displayed on the cover — a super cute concept that, in my opinion, makes his music even more appealing, as presentation and marketability are essential components of a successful record.

Every song features vocals from another artist, a common trend among DJs that sometimes creates a disconnect between the producer and their music, making it sound impersonal. Jax Jones is an exception, however, because while his vocals are almost entirely absent from the record, his personality definitely shines through, and you can tell he put his heart and soul into every beat.

Snacks (Supersize) is available now across all online and streaming platforms.
