Jai Wolf Confirms Concerts at The ELM and The Wilma with Evan Giia and Manila Killa
New York-based electronic music producer Jai Wolf will bring his Blue Babu Tour to Montana for two concerts in 2023, performing at The ELM in Bozeman on September 28th and The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, September 29th. Both shows will include support from Evan Giia and Manila Killa.
Sjeeb Saha a.k.a. Jai Wolf is best known for his indie-dance anthems “Indian Summer,” “Like It’s Over,” Moon Rider” and “Starlight.” He released his debut LP, The Cure to Loneliness, in 2019, which includes the popular song “Lose My Mind” ft. Mr Gabriel. Dance Music NW said “The Cure to Loneliness has a distinct sound. It has this interesting retro and 80’s vibe that isn’t found in Jai Wolf’s music before or after his album release. The distinct sound or vibe is the artistic part of the album. Jai Wolf created an album that we can still replay a year later and be smiling ear to ear.” Jai Wolf released his latest single “Want It All” ft. Evalyn earlier this year. He’s currently signed to the NYC-based independent record label, Mom + Pop Music.

About Jai Wolf
You don’t know Jai Wolf like you think you do. After hundreds of millions of streams on astral- indie-dance anthems like “Indian Summer” and “Starlight,” blockbuster festival sets from Indio to India, and regular co-signs from the likes of Skrillex and ODESZA, it’s clear from the opening notes of Jai Wolf’s long-awaited debut album The Cure to Loneliness that he sees the expectations around his name as an opportunity to challenge convention.
The Cure to Loneliness finds Jai Wolf completing his evolution from upstart bedroom remixer to future bass DJ to dream pop artist and builder of lush musical worlds. While still very much a dancefloor-focused endeavor, some tracks on the LP conjure the angular riffage of The Strokes and Phoenix, while weaving melodies through the sugary happysad of M83 and CHVRCHES, and building up walls of sound touched by Explosions in the Sky — all while maintaining the melodious polish and evocative groove to which fans around the world have grown so close.
“In my heart, this album is me,” says Jai Wolf, better known to some as Sajeeb Saha. “From the sounds to the lyrics, it’s everything that I’ve always wanted to do.” Jai Wolf has taken a different approach than many of his contemporaries under the wing of indie darling label Mom+Pop (Courtney Barnett, Flume, Jagwar Ma, Alina Baraz), largely eschewing singles to focus on patiently crafting The Cure to Loneliness over the course of the past two years. The result is a thoughtfully framed, confidently expressed musical vision that will tug at heartstrings in 2019 and long beyond. The album is available everywhere now. Continue reading…
