Jambi needs no introduction for those of you who need to listen to techno in order to wake up/sleep/eat etc. With releases on District of Corruption, Horizontal, Textone, and Junion, aswell as remixes for labels like Tuning Spork and producers like Jay Haze, Ricardo Villalobos, and Guido Schneider amongst many others, Jambi is a certainly a producer qualified to give us this physics lesson. So if you'd all take your seats, and spit out that gum, we can begin.
A1:"Circular Motion": The first lesson is on the A1 here, we're going to deal with "Circular Motion". Some of you may think this is a complicated proposition, perhaps you should have taken biology. Jambi's "Circular Motion" is a stilted, jazzy track with washes of static and more drum rolls than a marching band. This one clocks in at 9 minutes and it seems it will induce circular motions on the dancefloors, though be careful with those elbows, and feel free to improvise with square motions or rectangular motions. Even rhombus style moves are fine, if a little weird.
B1:"Neutrino's Dance": The next fundamental physics, or perhaps physical lesson, on the B1, is called "Neutrino's Dance". This track is darker and a little scarier, but it is part of the curriculum and will be on the test, so pay attention. Those seeking extra credit will note the track works around a simple bassline, and some deft snares with lots of effects. This one will have dancefloor students working, and give you the chance to go to the staff room for coffee and some cigarettes, and to mend the patches on your tweed jacket.
B2:"Gravity": However one lesson remains, before these damn kids know the hows and whys of physics. And if you can't learn this one, then you really should be taking biology, or perhaps you should be in a special class, with no sharp implements nearby. Yes, this lesson is the most important of all, since eventually it as important to your ass and other body parts as it is to NASA. Of course we're talking about "Gravity", on the B2. This is maybe the most uptempo track on this "Laws of Physics EP", it grinds and bangs for 6 minutes of hot science fun, making it even better than those experiments where you get to burn stuff.
These tracks combine to make Junion07 an EP which can find its way into all sets of deep electronic house music for those who know. The tracks are perfectly layered, and not only are people dancing, they are learning physics too. However one essential rule is broken by Jambi here, as he proves that in this rare case, what goes up does not have to come down.
