Jay Mathis: Demo (High Velocity Entertainment, 2004)

From the same camp as For Eternity and Karisma, another failed project from Chicago's High Velocity Entertainment and, not surprising, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. A white guy, he was one of many artists that Jerkins produced in the early 2000s era along with Rhona Bennett and female group So Plush. I don't know if he was ever signed to his Darkchild label but evidently this project never went beyond the demo stage. It is pretty much synonymous with much of Jerkins' work back then with a few tracks such as "Kiss" sounding not unlike something Robin Thicke might've recorded later on. Not the best sound on some tracks sadly but definitely one to add to the many doomed projects from once in-demand producer Jerkins. Many thanks again to Stuaaart for the contribution.
