Former member of the Tindersticks with whom he toured in 2010, graduated in music technology at Dublin’s prestigious Trinity College and holder of a well-furnished back catalogue including releases on John Talabot’s Hivern Discs, Major Problems, Permanent Vacation and Fort Romeau’s Cin Cin, David Kitt aka New Jackson is – to say the least – an intriguing figure and well-traveled artist.
Since establishing as a solo producer, Kitt’s shown an obvious inclination for horizontal melodic races and spacious audio layouts. Carried by omnipresent new-wavey synth motifs, rushing grooves and what’s become a trademark of his, the constant use of vocoder which he so nicely put to use on tracks like the anthemic ‘Sat Around Here Waiting‘ and ‘Of A Thousand Leaves‘, his compositions meld the sensuousness of French filtered-house and Italo-disco with the hypnotic depth of ambient and electronica.
An all-round Dubliners’ affair, New Jackson’s forthcoming EP for the Irish capital bellwether All City radiates with the same feel-good enthusiasm that innervated his previous outings, like on the present vocoder-heavy ‘Leave Me Making‘ which you can now listen in full through our channels. Gliding effortlessly from vaporous mind-expanding heights down to rousing air-to-ground dancefloor convertibility, its lavish swash of robot melancholia and velveteen ritornello hit the spot in all finesse.
Anya’s Piano is released via All City on 17th April, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
