A chance meeting of minds and talents, this surprising new EP comes from a seasoned producer who kicked off the SPC series with his stunning 3 part series, alongside a promising new talent whose name is spreading fast in the techno world. Jeroen Search & Markus Suckut are the craftsmen in question and this is their first creative output working together.
JSMS 1.0 introduces us into their world. Tough, straight beats pump under a discordant bed of synth tones that build in crescendo that emerges and then carefully dies down. The occasional crack of a lone clap or teasing washes of tape delay add to the tension, as this paranoid moment takes control.
A classically warm and minimalist affair, JSMS 4.3 plants a super deep synth theme in our heads before introducing quite a mysterious spoken word, locking us into the vibe without doubt. Crisp hats cut through the mix as a perfect tool is born.
Dub techno excursion JSMS 2.0 is a rough and raw stab track done their way. Reduced and spaced-out yet driving forward, this expertly reduced piece meanders around more left field zones as Jeroen and Markus re-define their vision of the classic dub track.
