Welcome to Tuesday. Nite Jewel recently joined forces with Droop-E, a rapper and producer out of the Bay Area. What we have now is the new track “N the Traffic,” from Droop-E’s forthcoming EP Hungry and Humble (details at Pitchfork). Listen to the song above!
“…all shimmering, spring water-clear chords and cavernous wobble. It’s both weightless and heavy while avoiding the pitfall of tipping the scale too far in either direction.” – PITCHFORK
Ramona has a few tour dates coming up later this month and also in April! See where exactly she will play HERE.
Nite Jewel shares her new video for the song “Memory Man.” Premiering earlier at the fashion site Refinery29, the video was directed by Angus Borsos of Helium Castle Pictures. Ramona takes center stage in this one and it’s a truly gorgeous work. Enjoy above.

Here’s a new video for Nite Jewel’s “Weak for Me”, found first at VICE’s Noisey! Directed by Jose Wolff (“Clive”), the video features a dancing Ramona and lots of geometric shapes. “Weak For Me” is off Ramona’s Good Evening, which we just rereleased earlier this week. You will find Good Evening Expanded Reissue at SC Distribution.
“We could call Nite Jewel a “gem,” but it would be way too damn easy. LA’s Ramona Gonzalez makes dance music with an intimate, tactile twist, dunked in a viscous mix of 80s glitter and 90s lo-fi.” – Noisey
