Following his excellent ‘Extended Play‘ EP released last year, Mark Hurst aka A Pleasure returns on Nicolas Jaar’s Other People imprint with ‘Jream House‘, a beautiful debut album lined up for release in January 2016.
Unloading a motley scope of diaphanous house and helical ambient ascents, ‘Jream House‘ is a carnival of unwonted audio vectors and spectral sound geometry. Here’s an enlightening perspective on A Pleasure’s very own art of music-making:
“Using a process of numerical transposition, Hurst converts the names of some of his favourite bands and composers into drum patterns. He then lets loose, improvising around these structures with a variety of traditional and unorthodox instruments: bowed cymbals, blowtorch on aluminium, bass guitars, drum machines juggled like turntables, to name but a few“.
Equally raw and sophisticated, square-shooting and spirited, ‘Jream House‘ promises to launch Other People’s new year of activity under the best auspices.
Jream House is released via Other People on 22nd January 2016.
