Boomkat Product Review:
Maxwell Sterling and DJ Plead lend crafty hands to Phillip Jondo’s classy debut melange of soundtrack, dembow, jungle and techno influences, dispensed by Dekmantel
With the intention to blur boundaries between headphone and home listening situations, Cologne’s Jondo ventures an immersive style of sound design benefiting from his heightened rhythmic instincts. In duo with Sterling, who leads on from his albums with Ecstatic and AD 93 in recent years, their ‘Dunkelziffer I’ sets the scene with RPG-like intrigue and sense of world building, flush with classical turns of phrase and rent with crisp electronics, where its part ‘II’ follows with scything dembow rhythms, cute bassline house motifs and streaking trance lines recoiling like Paul Marmota meets TCF.
On ‘Whowhuwho’ he tags in hard drum wunderkind DJ Plead for a round of killer jungle drums that barely touch the floor, kept up with Plead’s signature trills and deftest subbass hits and its airy, owl-like lead - you know all Plead productions are essential already. Russia’s Moa Pillar chases up a string of zingers for for Moscow’s ПИР (Peer) with a tuffer remix full of choppy percussive parries and a tightened up lead line.
