Juxi – “Night Time” [Prod. Yungboylez]

By: Seamus Fay

Coming out of Fields Corner, Juxi is a Graduation Music favorite who seems to be dead-set on artistic development. He takes his time between releases and truly works at his craft, resulting in noticeable improvements that push the rising talent just a little closer to his goals, one step at a time. Today, we hear Juxi experiment with some new flows in his latest single, “Night Time”.

Produced by Yungboylez, “Night Time” slows down the pace from some of Juxi’s past singles. It’s a bit less hectic and more focused on bringing forth genuinely infectious energy, which finds itself most directly manifested in the addictive glide of Juxi’s smooth cadences. This track is, as expected, yet another step forward for the Dorchester artist, capping off a strong year of success and stylistic exploration within his art. That said, be sure not to sleep — check out “Night Time” at the link below!

Juxi – “Bigger Me” [Prod. Banbwoi]

By: Seamus Fay

Hailing from the Boston area, there are few artists that we here at Graduation Music are more excited about than Juxi. His potential to do some serious damage is through the roof, and with singles including “Leave Me Alone” and “Thrasher” supporting these claims, I hold utter confidence in saying that the Fields Corner native is something special. That being said, it always brightens up the week when we receive new music from Juxi, and today, he’s here on our pages once again to bless the fans with a brand new single entitled “Bigger Me”. And quite frankly, this one might just be a hit.

Produced by frequent collaborator Banbwoi, the latest from Juxi is a rapidly-paced anthem all about living a luxurious lifestyle. Lines about cars, women, and living your best life grace the mic with a refreshing bout of energy, and the rising talent truly sounds rejuvenated in his dedication towards reaching the goals he sets for himself. With that said, “Bigger Me” is the melodic anthem that we all needed to end the summer off on a vibrant note, and thanks to Juxi, I’ll be keeping this one in heavy rotation for the weeks to come.

Juxi – “Full Court Press” [Premiere]

By: Seamus Fay

From “Thrasher” to “Leave Me Alone”, I’ve had a hunch about Juxi since my original introduction to his music. Since this initial excitement, however, each of these songs has proven to withstand the test of time. Not once have I ever gone back to Juxi’s SoundCloud and felt underwhelmed. Instead, every time I revisit his music, I feel that same wave of positive energy that the Fields Corner native is able to light up a room with, and I’m reminded as to why his sound made so much sense in the first place. That being said, I feel the exact same way so far about Juxi’s newest single, “Full Court Press” produced by frequent collaborator, Banbwoi.

As the song denotes, this Dorchester representative is ready to take the scene on head first this year, applying the pressure with new music and all in all, claiming his rightful spot within a competitive world of artists. “Full Court Press” works perfectly to this motive, establishing a high threshold of energy from the very first second and maintaining a barrage of ambitious, designer-inspired flows throughout each and every moment, as Juxi seemingly floats over the hard-hitting, relentless production.

Lyrically, this is yet another stellar performance by Juxi, but sonically, it’s arguably even more important to note that he’s right in his sweet spot where he sounds and works best, in my opinion. Knowing your skill set and understanding your creative vision are two incredibly important elements when it comes to making music, and with “Full Court Press”, we’re assured that Juxi has these two items in the bag. He’s ready for the top, ready to bring the energy, and ready to take over in 2018, so hear him out and get ready to see a bright future for this promising young talent.

The Top 50 New England Songs of 2017

By: Seamus Fay

Looking back, 2017 was a year of immense growth for New England and specifically Massachusetts’ budding music scene. We were fortunate enough to see the rise of many new talents as well as watch some of the more established artists prosper in their own ways, and frankly, it was inspiring to us to see the work that the artists, the producers, the photographers, the graphic designers, the mixers, the managers, etc. have been putting in. Without all of these people playing their respective roles, our scene wouldn’t be where it is today.

Having said that, we here at Graduation Music collaborated with Fresh Out The Mint to compile a list of the “Top 50 New England Songs of 2017” (in our humble opinion). Below is the playlist of all the tracks – enjoy!

Ever since I first heard the infectious energy of “Thrasher“, Fields Corner native Juxi has been one of my favorite artists to keep an eye on as he has grown into one of Boston’s most promising rising talents. Today, ready to bless the world with new heat, Juxi took to social media to preview a snippet of a new track. After just one listen of the snippet, it was already clearly apparent that Juxi has grown increasingly well-versed in his lyricism and deliveries since we last heard him. This new single showcases new flows that will undoubtedly make noise within the city and beyond, and I can’t wait for Juxi to unleash this banger to the world. For now, peep the snippet below and keep an eye out for any announcements.
