Jega - Electronic music nerds only need enter

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else heard his new album, Geometry? It's absolutely amazing! It's been in such heavy rotation on my computer lately that I'm begining to believe that it's the theme music for my computers inner-workings. The heavy beats and then all the clicks and blips... I'm struck.

Yes, I've had it for a while now. Is Jega on Rephlex? Or does anyone know?

Jega crushes shit... the title track on that album owns my face with a fierceness.

 

That said, I think his earlier album, "Spectrum", is better... tons of variety and excellent stuff all throughout. It's different sounding than "Geometry" in that it travels through a few different recognizable styles, whereas "Geometry" stays within a rather similar (although harder to pinpoint what it is) sound thoughout the whole album.

 

But yeah, get both.

i haven't heard geometry, but i used to own spectrum..

i remember liking one song alot, but i found that the

rest of the album, just overall, was way too repetitive.

that's the one thing i can't stand about alot of breakbeat

electronic shit...some songs are ridiculously long and

repetitive. uziq and vibert are bad for that as well...

i also find jega sounding a bit too much like the former

sometimes..

For whatever reason, I couldn't find anymore good IDM worth listening to. So, drum and bass is my new thing. I'm happy for now.

I got a hold of some of their stuff (mostly old stuff) and it's alright. I only got one song from the Geometry album but I like it the best. I jus' might have to purchase it...

The only song I've heard from Spectrum is Unity Gain... and it was a damn good song. I looked for it at the record shop a few days ago, but no go. So I'm on the search.

I've also gotten into the Venetian Snares lately as well... thanks to Dibs and the hook up. They're a little out of control but to the point where I really like it. As if they take you to the edge and then make you hang on for a while.

No probz.... it's kinda like underground, but not hip hop. Rephlex has many good artists that have the same type of musical "interests".

 

Long time no see Casek.
