Now, Kompakt readies the next strike from this exceptional musician with his latest full length THE PREDICTING MACHINE. It was a slightly unexpected turn of events for both the label and the mastermind behind such massive tracks as Mono On Mono or Sweat On The Walls, when both decided to release Parabolas on Kompakt, but it felt immediately like a perfect match. So perfect indeed, that even Tejadas own label Palette Recordings is now distributed by Kompakt. The previous album was made before I knew what I would do with it, says Tejada, readily acknowledging that the material for Parabolas successor The Predicting Machine was composed with Kompakt in mind: This felt like it had a direct purpose. I think that freed me a bit creatively. From the bleepy opener Orbiter to the jacking main single Stabilizer, the shuffling An Ounce Of Perception or the trademark bounce of tracks like Horizon To Horizon and A Familiar Mood, this album covers a lot of ground before closing its run with the soothing When All Around Is Madness, a cut that perfectly summarizes Tejadas deeply focussed approach to making music. The technical process was more involved than Parabolas, explains the producer: I dug deeper on the modular side trying out many new things, which inspired a lot of the songs. While thats exactly how we like to imagine the master at work, hunched over a plethora of scientific sounding modules, meticulously planning out the waveform of some random click, this doesnt do justice to Tejadas finely tuned melodic sensibilities denouncing a repeat offender when it comes to pure musicality and unadulterated emotion. Every single one of Tejadas sounds sees its own personal evolution, being send on a track-long journey through wondrous landscapes, worlds that are alien in the most human way possible, inviting you to stay and lionize the marvels on display. John Tejada truly is an architect of epic story arcs, and he builds them on the smallest of surfaces, finding grandness in every detail.
