“I sense that these day’s, labels are trying so hard to fit music into perfect little boxes. They are trying to get their songs placed on specific Spotify playlists or trying to find the next “EDM banger.” I really want to switch that up. Dance music feels very stale to me. There are tons of producers making unique stuff but they just let it sit on their computer because they have nowhere to release it or they don’t think kids are going to headbang to it at a festival. That’s where Group Chat comes in.” – JSTJR, CULTR

“If there’s one name that comes to mind who’s pushing Moombahton and his unique brand of global bass music harder than anyone, it’s Los Angeles-based JSTJR. Coming off a hot 2018 filled with international hits and collaborations, JSTJR sets his sights on his new record label, called Group Chat.” – Your EDM

With “I See You,” Tomaszewski is entering the rapidly competitive landscape of artist-run labels. With Group Chat Recordings he will be taking the next step as a curator. The producer has positioned himself well musically having worked with imprints such as Mad Decent, Insomniac Records, Monstercat, and many more so he comes with experience and knowledge in the field. With a pulse on what artists want, this notion should play well in JSTJR’s favor as he tackles this new endeavor in his career. – EDM.com

“I want to push boundaries and allow for artists to do something different. Not like, “weird” different, but just different than the over-saturated bass music we hear coming out lately. That’ll focus on a lot of global bass sounds, but I plan to release anything that I think is cool and refreshing but still makes you dance!” – Bassrush

“More creativity and taking risks. Like I said, it seems like many artists are making music to try to fit into a pre-existing idea of what is acceptable, playlist-able or playable on a festival main stage…More artists need to do what THEY think is cool.” – Riverbeats
