The Toronto music scene is a bubbling hot pot of independent artists that continue to push to the confines of the modern music scene. This week’s first dive into the growing scene is musician Jake Beck and his latest drop “Back Then”. The latest rising star to push his way up and out among the rest, Jake Beck has the lofty idea to push the rules of production. A fan of the wide spectrum that is music genres, Jake dabbles in each one, determined to extract any usable elements to incorporate into his own. Jake Beck simply asks a simple question…what could music be if these rules didn’t exist?
We don’t normally make wide-sweeping comments about a group of people, but we have to face the facts. Simply put, Millenials love nostalgia. So when an indie artist like Jake Beck is able to capture the essence of nostalgia in one of their songs, they have our attention. Even though “Back Then” is technically a pop song, the track feels so removed from the pop genre chains that we have to admit that Jake Beck’s production skills impressed us. Another notch of completion towards his ultimate end goal, “Back Then” pushes the very definition of pop music to its boundaries. “Back Then” oozes nostalgic feelings, and that alone should be enough to put Jake Beck on your radar.
