With just one week to go until the release of his massive debut artist album The Wise and The Wicked, Jauz presents the final advance single from the work; “Super Fly.” The track features the legendary German producer 666 and gives fans another intriguing taste of the dynamic album.
“Super Fly” is funkified bass house packed with disordered synths. The track is featured in the fourth chapter of the album (dubbed “The United”) that’s described by Jauz as the middle ground between crazy club bangers and emotional experimental music. It perfectly illustrates the blend between the production stylings of The Wise and The Wicked.
The Wise and The Wicked is more than just an album, but a story of a distant future dystopia that resulted from the increasing threats to our society in our current day in age. The conceptual album is split into chapters, using the tracks and their order to tell the intense story of the dystopia dreamt up by Jauz himself.
The five chapters of the album consist of the battles between The Wise and The Wicked, which eventually results into the joint power; The United. “The Wise” represents those in the dystopia who inspire the masses by using intelligence and knowledge, and hope to find a cure for the ailing earth we live on with new groundbreaking technologies. “The Wicked” represents those who believe in full anarchism, using anger and aggressiveness to grow their ranks. The United represents those who are fueled by passion to create a better world. They have realized that this fight is not between two sides of humanity, but between all of humanity itself and everything that corrupted both sides into sinking our world deeper into darkness.

Jauz shows great finesse here, crafting his instrumental around a deep bass sound that perfectly pairs with KIIARA’s delicate vocal. It provides fans with yet another hint at what’s in store for Jauz’s music anticipated artist album which is on the horizon.
“Diamonds” features Kiiara’s heavenly vocals along with Jauz’s deep house and hip-hop beats, making it the perfect balance of smooth and sexy.
Jauz has been on a roll lately with new release after new release, all in anticipation for his full album drop, which is coming soon. The song gives fans a peek inside that to expect with the producer’s upcoming album.
The DJ went to Twitter to share that “this song is probably one of the most stand-out records from the album, in my opinion, just because of how “out there” for me it is. My favorite part of writing this album was getting to find a voice for songs like this.”
When the track finally dropped, Jauz expressed that this track is “one of the songs I’m most proud of on the album. Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!”
Jauz’s new album still doesn’t have a release date, but hopefully this new release is a sign that he will be dropping the album soon.
