Despite decades of history, it seems like the crossover of jazz and electronic music might be on its way to 'future bass' popularity status. But unlike future bass-whatever that is-it's doubtful that this jazzy will mold like a Wave Racer track anytime soon.

Jarryd Torff is a prime example of why jazz and electronic music are united 'till death do they part. New to your ears and ours, his breezy, house-y debut EP Islands gleams from start to finish. "Islands" is a track for glass elevator rides with a cityscape view to the penthouse suite.

The multi-instrumentalist and producer is based vaguely "somewhere between the islands of Montreal and New York City."

"This music is a blend of the experiences I've had in these two cities and the images are a blend of Brooklyn, and the south shore of Montreal," says Torff.

Listen to the track "Islands" above. Jarryd Torff's Islands EP is out on February 24.
