Boomkat Product Review:
Synth expert JakoJako applies her nous to four deep, dark and sensuous techno rollers and electro tangents
The sleek efficiency of opener ‘F22.0’ clearly speaks to JakoJako’s background in Berlin techno, while ‘Kogn. Dissonanz’ follows her shift into more pensive, cavernous ambeint-electro dimensions with exacting production recalling classic Monolake.
On the flip ‘Resilienz’ again exhibits a knack for subtle sound design, this time applied to a slinky minimal house swing and spiralling chromatic pads with a breezy 2nd wind, and ‘Katharsis’ impressively sidewinds off into a sort of instrumental, dubbed-out synth-pop with a gorgeous, fluttering lead and drifting choral voices.
