Any change of scenery logically involves changes in the way one approaches and interacts with his/her reality and environment. That’s exactly what happened to Alexander Dorn, alias Credit 00, when he made the move to a centrally located flat in downtown Leipzig two years ago. The presence of a very enviable winter garden in his apartment – a green islet lost in an ocean of concrete – triggered a fresh dynamic in his craft, which his new EP for Uncanny Valley seeks to explore.
Split over two sides, each of which reflects a distinct facet of the city hubbub and magic quiet of that newfound natural haven, ‘Deep In The Jungle‘ is the kind of high-density record that truly deserves the ‘all killer no filler’ mention, but it would mean skipping over Dorn’s subtly chiselled prod and the sexiness of his sound design, which has us deeming that this new 12″ may well be his finest work to date.
Now streaming across our channels, the equally voluptuous and bouncy title-track opens a window into a world of emerald tranquility – rife with vegetalised terraces of sound and swift-flowing jungle drums spilling and cascading upon warm beds of shimmering synth melodies, chimes and cowbells. As primarily dynamic a tune as it deserves to be further looked into for the cunning and excellency of its clocklike construction, this one keeps delivering even after the thousandth listen. Beauty.
Deep In The Jungle is released via Uncanny Valley on 29th May, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
