Following the release of "Journeys" in November 2016, Jâ–²Mâ–²Tâ–²R has collaborated with long-time friend and artist Natalie Foster (who appeared on Elk Road's triple j Hottest 100 track 'Hanging By A Thread') to create a dreamy Gameboy sensation titled "Reflect".

Written over the space of two songwriting sessions (in which Natalie literally ran across Brunswick to Jâ–²Mâ–²Tâ–²R"s house, dog in tow), the track was inspired by an animation by Alice Carroll which depicted a girl lost in space. With the narrator having an overwhelming sense of despair and fear when her reflection leaves her, she discovers her strength and potential for greatness as she overcomes her own self doubt and negative perceptions.

"Journeys" scored high praise from chiptunes and broader EDM reviewers alike for creating an uplifting musical experience that both celebrates and transcends the classic 8-bit genre.

Wielding ambient-come-pounding electro beats combined with an impressive visual show, Jâ–²Mâ–²Tâ–²R"s live performance is already amounting a reputation for one hell of a party and his future shows are not to be missed. See Jâ–²Mâ–²Tâ–²R in Melbourne and Sydney this June.
