New Supercharged EP from Jaytech – Positronic!
Jaytech, a.k.a. Jimbo, has revealed not only his new EP (released on 7/7), but also a brand-new imprint, Positronic Digital! As a rule, I love new labels and this one will be a big-hitter in the near future with assumed support from Anjunabeats.
Let’s get into the tracks:
Tank Logic: Above & Beyond is probably extremely proud of this track, as it follows the classic Anjuna mix of calming breakdowns, high energy uplifting synth drops and an irresistible heavy bass drop. The A&B guys even chose it for ABGT #85.
Entropy: A testament to Jimbo’s ability to come up with incredible melodies and find the chunkiest of bass instruments. Much more old-school and progressive in the song-structure than “Tank Logic”, “Entropy” is much more suited for a Prydz set than an Above & Beyond set (although both artists are good enough to work with just about anything).
Electron: A burst of energy as reverbed synths fill the space. This track isn’t about the hook, it isn’t about the complicated melodies. “Electron” is about the party, with a masterful manipulation of energy for a perfect mid-set banger.
Blackout: My personal favorite, “Blackout” includes a late 90’s alternative style of guitar picking coupled with a groovy rock beat. Jaytech paints a picture that’s almost aimed at Seattle, with how deep and thought-provoking it is – a veritable overcast of sound! As complex as the great Pacific Northwest, “Blackout” is full of emotion ranging from high to low in an almost poetic fashion.
