Boomkat Product Review:
Effervescent ambient techno steppers from London’s Jack Chrysalis, venturing his debut album with Mana after aces by Madalyn Merkey and Uwalmassa.
Jack’s eponymous debut album builds on the warm promise established on his 12”s for Blank Mind with eight new pieces of floating, gently insistent club structures suffused with electronic soul and rendered with deft dubbing. The results sit somewhere to the left of Four Tet and Joy O, trading in a lissom, user-friendly splice of UKG swing and rolling techno chassis primed for wafty dancing and nice times.
“‘His signature propulsive mutations of organic techno and UK garage sound strongly in tracks like Another Year and Coldharbour, but Chrysalis threads in more introspective moments, which llend a sense of atmosphere and a deeper running mood to the album’s overworld, heightening endorphin hits from the garage swing and affording a little more bittersweetness to its textures and secrets. ‘Whether in rush or retreat, each track on this album emerges with its own emotional resonance. There’s a sense of seasons turning, or a twilight quality that’s hard to fully pin down. “Owl music” became shorthand for Jack’s tunes, a way for Mana to capture a prescient, nocturnal flight within their environment.’”
