Four skilled techno artists have combined their musical dexterities for this release, entitled simply; Preludes. BJNJ are Pheek, Giash and the brothers of Mod303, all established artists with a stronghold in the minimal scene. The chemistry is clear here, the collab seamless, with a complete sound that comes together as if it was just one artist’s vision.
Preludes‘ first moments are enticing to say the least; with classical motives, freyed edges, plucked accents and light sky blue spaces, it visceral right away, head to toe.
As the set progresses, the feelings deepen into a liquid ambiance, bringing in the right amount of far away tensions with sharpened up presence.
There is a lot of communication throughout, with arcane human voices that drop in alongside clicky tangled sticks that sound like an ancient alphabet, the long looping beats underneath giving breath to the prose. The balance of conversation that closes the set of tunes shows the complexity of language these four have, leaving things on an intelligent note.
Preludes are usually considered a set up for what is to come, but this feels like a satiating event unto itself.
