J. Worra may call sunny L.A. home now, but her underground Chicago roots run deep. Working the chunky end of the house spectrum with a heavy bass touch, Worra’s sound hasn’t been around too long, but it has nevertheless quickly earned props from DJ Mag and Claude VonStroke. Release-wise, she has previously put out tunes on Sweat It Out!, AudioXXL, and Perfect Driver.
Her latest jacking stomper, “Downtown Diva,” is packed with synths that groan, squirm, and squiggle over a wicked, rolling bassline, sassy finger snaps, and pitched-down vocals commanding “bounce for me.” It’s the lead single from her forthcoming EP of the same name, set to drop next month on IN / ROTATION.
“I wrote ‘Downtown Diva’ several weeks after the proposed EP was discussed,” she tells Insomniac. “After my first session on it, I knew it was a perfect reflection of me as an artist: the weird twists and turns, the fun vocals, and a groovy bassline. I am so excited to release this track and EP—it truly showcases my sound, and I’m ready to start making my mark as a house music producer.”
We think she already has.
Available October 3 via IN / ROTATION.
