Production duo Yellow Trash Can hasn’t been together for over a year and they’re already making big waves in the music industry. Recently landing their first major placement on Blocboy JB’s album Fatboy, members Jitta On Track and Jason Navarrete aren’t planning on letting up anytime soon. A fan favorite on BlocBoy’s new project, “Carlton” is lead by a hard-hitting and infectious piano melody keeping it simple yet highly effective. With one listen this melody and BlocBoy’s off-the-wall delivery will most likely be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Made up of multi-instrumentalist Jason Navarrete and Sony songwriter Jitta On The Track, these two first connected when they were hired for a gig to produce music and print merchandise for the original “Yellow Trash Can.” The company bearing the now duo’s band name tried to run off with their music and leave them with over $5,000 dollars worth of clothing and 8 unfinished records without paying the amount promised. Turning a slight tragedy into a moment of clarity, these two young musicians have already caused an online stir between legendary skateboarders Tony Hawk and Bam Margera over their debut single “Populated,” and now have landed their first major label placement with BlocBoy JB’s “Carlton.” With help from a slight viral moment of “Carlton” debuting on BlocBoy JB’s Triller, this song has quickly become a standout from BlocBoy JB’s new album.
The beat started on the Korg Gadget app while Jitt was in Los Angeles and Jason was in Portland, playing Nintendo switch online. Once the melody was finished and some basic percussion, Jitt bounced out the files and finished it up on Fruity Loops. “Being able to make music live at the same time through Nintendo is actually extremely helpful Jitta’s been using all of Nintendo’s cardboard synths and toys in the studio for years, it was cool to have this different approach to bridge the distance” says Jason of YTC. Blocboy JB came to Burn Money studios up in Portland, while on tour with Trippie Redd and both of them pulled up on Jason at work and ended up busting out Carlton the next day before they left.
Yellow Trash Can recently connected with 808 Mafia Producer Purp and opened a recording studio in North Hollywood to not only produce more hits for themselves but also assist other talented and up and coming artists with their vision. With just their first major placement after being together for less than a year, we’re expecting big things from Jason Navarrete and Jitta On The Track aka Yellow Trash Can.
