Cornwall-raised and London-based musician and producer Ted Jasper is today sharing the downtempo jazzy electronica of his latest single ‘Don’t Want It’, written in collaboration with fellow London-residing producer, Beni Giles. Following on from his 2018 ‘One Day’ EP (the inaugural release on Jamz Supernova’s Future Bounce imprint, supported by 6 Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra) as well as recent single ‘Back For More’, this new cut arrives alongside disjointed, grainy visuals of Jasper wandering through London’s brutalist landscapes.

Talking about the story behind ‘Don’t Want It’, Jasper reveals: “Me and Beni were writing it together and coming up with the hook using computer-based software, and throughout the session we were talking about how there’s always this ‘new’ thing you need as a producer. When it comes to software and technology, it moves so fast and certain technology that you’ve just acquired becomes obsolete so quickly. There’s this constant change, and that’s where the chorus came from – ‘Need it but don’t want it.’ It’s about the necessity of having to have this thing to continue, even if you don’t particularly want it.”
“Ted Jasper has been steadily making a name for himself with his jazz-inclined, downtempo electronics.” Complex
