Boomkat Product Review:
Quite easily the best release to date on Pole's Scape imprint, the return of Jan 'Farben' Jelinek has been massively popular here in the office, a simply intensely original, deep and affecting collection of tracks that once again highlight just how talented and out there Mr Jelinek really is. The opening 'Introducing' arranges a dense display of found sounds, electric tinkles and velvet layering that end abruptly with a round of applause leading into the bubble bass house of the unbeleiveably good second track 'Music To Interrogate By'. The same 'Loop-Finding' technique displayed on Jelinek's last album is used, but the method is invisible and the production nothing short of fully realised. The static on the groove builds up the dusty atmosphere, the cascading Rhodes inspiring a million emotions, the bounce of the beats moving you limb by limb with pure exhiliration. Unbeleivable stuff. 'Facelift' introduces Jan's imagined vocal acompaniment 'The Exposures' - a dark, processed, slowed down and layered vocal performance that takes the record into entirely new terrain, rich with a thousand ideas, avoiding the temptation to clutter, ending up with an important work that works in its entirety, from beginning to end. Lovely.
