Elbowing his way onto the dais occupied by the likes of Washed Out and Toro y Moi is John Jagos aka Brothertiger, whose pimpadelic grooves are filtered through 80's-fi production.
John Jagos, the brain behind and sole member of Brothertiger, doesn't aspire to be anything other than himself.

His tunes are ostensibly "chillwave", but with a sparkling melodic sense that sets them apart from other artists under that umbrella. Since the project's beginning during Jagos' freshman year at Ohio University, Brothertiger has developed a nuanced sound that attempts to blend the human and animal elements suggested by its name. As a live performer in the Athens house party scene, he's gained a reputation for intense joyfulness. Recorded, his songs are more precious, with details and ideas that only reveal themselves with repeated listens. Buoyed by his voice - which contains both adult timbre and youthful disposition - Jagos' songs combine layered, interweaving electronics with warm, satisfying melodies. He's been releasing them at a fever pitch, earning favorable press from places like Pitchfork Media and the Fader while preparing his first full length less than two years after he began. Yet even with this gathering momentum, Brothertiger maintains a personal humility and unassuming nature that echoes the subtle exuberance of his music.
