Recently signed to sharp-eared Australian record label Future Classic, Jeida Woods has just released his debut single proper, ‘Selfless’. Having put out a load of impressive self-produced tracks on SoundCloud over the last few years, here he is teamed up with producer Lucianblomkamp.

Best known for his work with 6lack, as well as being a solo artist in his own right, Blomkamp does an excellent job of sharpening up the combination of R&B vocals and thick trap beats that Woods has made his own. Rather than trying to craft him, the producer rightly lets Woods’ talent shine through.

“‘Selfless’ is a culmination of previous relationships that ended negatively”, says Woods. “I wrote the song one cold night last winter and it took me less than 30 minutes, as it was so true to my emotions at that time. The lyrics illustrate how no one should try to force a relationship that doesn’t feel natural”.
