Boomkat Product Review:
London’s I.Jordan absolutely bosses it on their solo debut proper with Local Action, throwing down four cuts of filter funk, lush trance and booty-rattling ghetto-tech, plus a canny remix by ELLLL
As organiser of London’s premiere new age social, New Atlantis, you’d be forgive for thinking I.Jordan was a sanguine soul, whereas in fact they're a long time spar of the uptempo donny Finn, and highly regarded for their no-holds-barred DJ style.
On ‘DNT STP MY LV’ they do dance music in no uncertain terms, gutting you in the swing with the titular Todd Edwards-meets-Thriller style boogie fling, before sending it into orbit with a 160bpm rocket ‘DN4’ fuelled on the meanest Reese bass, while ‘Through Lacuna’ sustains that trajectory into lusher realms and then, for measure, they cool your heart rate and up the lip-smacking factor with the full wingspan trance-breaks flight of ‘Leaving Stanley’. Bonus round comes from Ireland’s ELLLL, graduate of Sligo’s Art For Blind and Dublin’s All City, with a woozier, abstract, but still banging remix of ‘Through Lacuna.’
So yeh, I.Jordan is just as adept at lulling you to sleep as rudely rousing the ‘floor.
