  • Coconut Sofa: Introducing Jaded Incorporated

    Posted : March 26, 2014

    Mayer is extremely excited to introduce his new group JADED INCORPORATED. This is a brand new project with high school friend and long time collaborator, 14KT.

    About Jaded Inc.: 
    Jaded Incorporated is 14KT and Mayer Hawthorne. Two post-futuristic creators who grew up together in Michigan. Born out of their mutual adoration for the Post-Punk and New Wave movements of the early 1980′s, and an obsession with Ghettotech and Booty music that penetrated the airwaves and rave scene in Detroit in the 90′s, Mayer and KT have created a brand new sound they call BEAT WAVE. It’s a modern amalgamation of influences including Ultravox, J Dilla & DJ Assault.
