Figure SPC A I II III
Rotterdam's deep Techno explorer Jeroen Search has the privilege of launching the Figure SPC project, with a very special three-part release, rich in heart-stopping club vibes and cooly collected analogue temperaments.
Along with his regular studio partner Dimi Angelis, Jeroen released a previous record on Figure, exploring the long-grooving, magical realms of twilight hours Techno. This triplet release, which essentially stands as a new format for an artist album, will be released one by one in succession, over a three week period.
Using a strict sound palette of classic analogue textures and wonderfully treated synth-scapes, Jeroen adds his own untouchable production sheen and impeccable rhythm patterns layer upon layer. Subtly underplayed, yet utterly thrilling all the while, this collection of altered states hypnotism marks a new peak for the Dutch producer.
Complete with beautifully crafted, bespoke packaging and artwork, this wonderful new series of releases stands out like a shining beacon, celebrating the meetings of rhythm, power, instinct and emotion.... This is Figure SPC.
Like many of the free flowing, hedonistic and atmosphere-heavy tracks found amongst Jeroen Search's SPC A, 'Module' and 'Region 1' represent urgent, dubbed landscapes full of precisely timed, ear-tingling refinement. Solid, fulfilling bass chambers and pumping kick drums meet warm phasing synth stabs, sitting perfectly amidst the addictive chorus of neo-classical drum deployments. Each adopts their own direction, and take us on two very different paths down dreamy yet insistent channels.
'Earth', on the B side is simply a dreamer's delight. While being sparser than its A-sided brothers, its beautiful, smooth strung chord washes and melodic sentiments raise the drama and after bowling us over, graciously lifts us up back onto our feet once again.
