Boomkat Product Review:
Skam on the nostalgia tip with overdue issue of Jega cuts produced circa ’95, just prior to his much-loved Phlax and Card Hore 12”s (if you like this, you’ll love those!).
They’re a fine reminder of his often overlooked contributions to ‘90s electronica, flush with a melodic sweetness and complex, driving arrangements that clearly rank up next to your AFX, µ-Ziq or Autechre goodies from that same era.
I’ll be honest though, we were always more partial to his stunning takes on breakbeat hardcore, such as the aforementioned Card Hore rinser and Norton Midgate from the Phlax 12”, so we’re obviously drawn to those aspects here.
If you’re of the same opinion as us, we’d thoroughly recommend checking for his Drexciyan pulsar, Momentum (SH101DR55MIX) or the flanging high-velocity electro of Lunar Jetman and Lake Windermere’s brooding BoC-like glow, but if you’ve got a sweeter IDM tooth just dive in and you’ll surely be satisfied somewhere.
