Shortly after Incarnation (a brutal metal band from Alor Setar) was disbanded in December 2015, Najmi, the former frontman and producer, started working on his solo project, The Jameson Project – a creative outlet for him to experiment with different song-writing styles.
After writing a couple of songs, Najmi toyed with the idea of producing a pop-rock EP featuring his favourite singers but unfortunately, it never really took off due to budget constraints. He however, managed to record a single entitled “Rock N’ Roll Sampai Mati” with Myo (frontman of local rock giant, Oh Chentaku) and eventually it became the main theme song of Myo’s travel show, Ride Hensem. Looking at how determined and passionate Myo is about the project, Najmi then decided to start a duo supergroup with him. And to kick start this new adventure, Myo came up with the name JEMSON, a playful spin-off of the original project name.
Hailed from Kuala Lumpur, JEMSON is releasing an EP entitled Balada Cinta Kosmos this 25th October 2019 on all streaming platforms worldwide.
EP Title: Balada Cinta Kosmos
1. Rock N’ Roll Sampai Mati
2. Sakit Hati
3. Fan Boy
4. Pape Saje
5. Lagu Paling Kecewa Di Dalam Dunia
Every song offers catchy tunes and classic vibe that would reminisce the 80s Rock with modern Pop and Punk elements. Myo contributed in the making of the lyrics that compliment every song with beautiful stories that the working-class creatives can relate to their lives. Musically produced by El Moe Hussaini and Najmi, Balada Cinta Kosmos is Oh Chentaku Records latest release. This EP is also specially featured in a limited-edition cassette format in conjunction with Cassette Store Day 2019 and is available for purchase at Tala Records Asia.
MUSIC VIDEO SAKIT HATI
JEMSON recently premiered their very first official music video for the 1st single “Sakit Hati”, taken from EP Balada Cinta Kosmos. Within a day, the music video on JEMSON’s official YouTube channel has obtained great feedbacks from the fans and shared all over social media platforms. The song featured a Los Angeles based guitar hero, Raz Azraai on the solo part that was designed and recorded in Los Angeles, California. The music video also featured Raz Azraai performing the solo and was filmed at a gas station in Los Angeles.
#JEMSONSAKITHATI music video is the 1st episode of a music video trilogy produced by Oh Chentaku Records, produced and directed by Myo himself. It tells a story about two normal guys that work at a restaurant and a steel workshop in Kuala Lumpur who determined to become a pro-wrestler duo, JEMSON. In this 1st episode of the music video, it shares the journey of JEMSON riding on a motorcycle from their workplace to the wrestling arena, however, they faced challenges along the way as they were both preparing to face the wrestling heavyweight.
The music video is quirky and humorous that mimicry shows that JEMSON is a fun rocker and is actually very talented in person. It was filmed around Kuala Lumpur city, produced, directed by Myo and assisted by a good team of Syahrul Danial (Ke Korea Ke Kita), Mohamad Azim (Ke Korea Ke Kita) this year.
