Boomkat Product Review:
Recorded earlier this year in Kingston, Jamaica by Jordan “Time Cow” Chung of Equiknoxx fame, "Live Prog Dancehall From Home” features two heavyweight, long-haul sessions totalling 45 minutes of deep and tripped-out psychedelic dancehall science. It’s properly heady and forward gear from a producer who usually deploys his wares in short, sharp bursts, here essentially making the most of time standing still with a long-form study of continuous forward motion and abstracted, slow motion gyrations. aye.
Jordan is a part of the engine/makeup of Equiknoxx’s weirdest, tightest productions so is already well versed in throwing the wildest shapes in the dance, but here he takes an inward turn with an opening that could just about work as a fractal/sunrise trance arp intro, before glyding into a steppers formation. Trust that from here on in it develops into whirling gear of the highest calibre, something like an extended Villalobos-does-dembow session.
On the flip; a more upfront and angular energy - an 18 minute trip into clipped jacking body movements, like the most engrossing Equiknoxx heater stretched into oblivion, with slowly eviscerated, simmering pads fading to nothing...
“The last few months have been a blur. My headphones are broken, my earphones have a short, i’m in just my underpants on the couch pretty much all the time and it’s very hot. I do however occasionally visit construction sites, livestock farms and the hills. Mr. Kat asked me to document my sound from this time period. Since I’ve been doing next to nothing music related, and uncertain about what live performances might look like in the near future I decided to create two of my own. The higher tempo track I used Maschine for the backbone and the lower tempo Track I used TRK-01. Both tracks also use Komplete. Hope that was insightful, nerds. Play them loud and have sex to them.” Time Cow, 2020
