EDITORS’ NOTES

Anyone who went out dancing in the 1990s might remember the phrase “Call for Location”—it was a standard fixture of rave flyers, dangling the promise of off-the-grid revelry just a phone call away. Growing up in South Florida, Jess Gentile spent many weekend nights punching numbers into her touch-tone, and her second album as Jubilee pays tribute to the thrill of those late-night escapades. It’s also an homage to the open-mindedness of those Miami parties, filtered through the anything-goes spirit of contemporary club culture. In keeping with her own eclectic DJ sets, she touches on house, bass music, grime, and electro, staying true to her origins all the while: “I Don’t Think So” puts a deep-diving spin on Florida breaks, “Speed Limit” tips its hat to Miami bass, and “Mami,” “Daylight Ravings,” and “Fulla Curve” bust out slinky dancehall and reggaetón grooves. Just for fun, there’s one unabashed throwback: “Disconnected,” which projects pummeling techno and trance stabs through the prism of 21st-century sound design. Even when casting a fond glance backward, Jubilee keeps one eye fixed on the future.
