As hinted on his debut EP for Milan-based outlet UN.T.O., the territory coveted by Jack Roland is one of geometrical order and sleek futuristic beauty, away from the down-at-heel tropes conveyed by classic dust-clogged house merchants and pseudo-techno bores that traded the rainbow-flag colours of its initial spectrum of choice for the black-only dimness of mind.
One of the proud heralds of the resurgence of electro as a crucial component in contemporary club music, the Amsterdam-based producer strikes back with the vibrant ‘The Others‘, just out via Aleks’ imprint Lonely Planets Rec. and sure to slay some Replicants on its way to the club.
Weapon of choice on this pacey electro workout of a 12″, our premiere – ‘Lost‘ – ushers you into a burning dystopian reality where cars lift from the ground, neon’s the only source of light and thought streams have fused with computational influxes. Going offworld and back, Roland’s synths travel space and time with equally impeccable roadholding, dashing wildly across magnetic shields and comet fields as if the long-gone sun was to rise one last time before eternal eclipse.
The Others is out now via Lonely Planets Rec., order a copy from Juno.
