Jar is a “Tropical house” song. I have produce this beat with a summer inspiration. It’s a deep beat with lot of percussion and a Indian flute riff. I have also produced a beat who was a mix of electronic and acoustic instruments. It’s not an involved track, it’s just an inspiration and good vibes beat.
