Jaden Thompson returns to Crosstown Rebels with ‘Downtown’

A new school talent whose sound takes cues from Chicago while pointing to the future with forward-thining allure and energy, Jaden Thompson’s ascent is well-documented, having been tipped by an endless list of industry heavyweights and global media outlets from an early age.

Releasing on labels such as Cuttin’ Headz and Classic Music Company, amongst others, plus his own Midnight Parade imprint, Thompson’s sound and dynamic sets have seen the UK talent become a favorite for many while also hosting his ongoing Rinse FM show and curating mixes for the likes of Circoloco and Keinemusik through to Nike for it’s annual Air Max Day.

Having made his label debut on Crosstown Rebels in 2022 with his standout collaboration ‘Talking Walls’ with Seth Troxler, Thompson now returns to Damian Lazarus’ legendary imprint as he serves up his first solo record on the label ‘Downtown’ – backed by remixes from surging US DJ/producer HoneyLuv and emerging UK talent Ghoulish, who makes his debut on the imprint.

Here’s what Jaden Thompson had to say about the release:

“Downtown” is a fusion of disco, house and garage. It’s a fun record that has been blowing up many of my sets over the past few months.” 

Merging various shades and sounds from across the electronic sphere, ‘Downtown’ brings vibrant vocals, energy-charged synths, and sharp metallic percussion, all balanced perfectly, to the fore.

HoneyLuv’s remix brings jacking drums while warping the original’s vocals to deliver a peak-time interpretation before Ghoulish flips the script, utilizing off-kilter drums and spiraling lasers amongst heavy low-ends.
