Rising Berlin-based artist J. Lamotta serves up a selection of inspirational sounds for her guest playlist.
Born in Tel Aviv to a family with Moroccan roots, the now Berlin-based artist and producer J.Lamotta is gearing up to for the release of ‘Suzume’; her second album for Jakarta Records.
Last week J.Lamotta shared the first taste from her upcoming LP, an uplifting neo-soul cut called ‘Turning’.
Her forthcoming record was recorded across four different studios in Berlin, involving 24 musicians from all around the globe. In contrast to 2017’s ‘Conscious Tree’ album, which was made using found sounds and samplers, the new album sees J.Lamotta expanding her production repertoire by crafting a warm body of sound, laced with live strings and a horn section provided by her band which have toured together from Berlin to South Korea and Japan over the past three years.
For her playlist, J. Lamotta has curated a feel-good selection which includes everything from Donny Hathaway, Erykah Badu, Aaliyah, Stevie Wonder, The Gap Band and many others.
“Inspirational Souls is my little collection of what makes me feel good and gives me energy. No focus on particular time but just soulful vibe” J. Lamotta
