Jon GK – “Genie 17”


Laid-back and funky with an addictive melodic charm, “Genie 17” is a new single from Jon GK, a Los Angeles-based artist. Starting with an understated feeling of soulful funk, with sporadic bass pulses, the two-minute mark finds vocals lifting with vibrancy amidst a bouncy push in the instrumentation. The bass-heavy “thank you!” bridge a minute later shows an especially catchy feel, with enjoyment from chilled-out key adornments alongside a bustling bass line. “Genie 17” is a thorough success from Jon GK, who describes the premise as “If a genie could grant you one wish, what would you choose?”

“Genie 17” features guitar and flute by Yoni Arbel, and artwork by Allen Love.

“Genie 17” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Funk, Soul, and R&B.
