emotions, melody and rhythm. those are the keywords to describe jin chois new release on serialism records, >delirium ep<. the berlin based artist has already been on the spotlight with the serialism team for his release >full range< (with maceo plex on rmx duty) a couple of years ago. his peculiar sound has developed even more since back then, leaving a special mark on the electronic music by spreading its uniqueness via well respected labels such as lessizmore, contexterrior as well as his own imprint private gold. the original tunes are solid musical journeys crossing over techno and dubstep, somewhere between the berlin and london sound, sometimes between the past and the future. romantically charged of emotions and broken rhythms. delirium ep also includes a minimal avant-garde re-visit by jazz musician david koch aka dewalta from the vakant and meander family.
jin choi is a musician, producer, dj and live artist based in berlin, germany. equally focused on groove and melodic structures, his music fuses electronic and naturalistic sounds to move the head and body. once coined modern minimal, chois productions are equal parts emotion, melody and rhythm. full range is his first release on serialism records. in a recent interview, choi described himself as a burial loving music-nerd who is simply trying to create his own musical language. he has released on lessizmore, contexterrior, romanphoto & archipel, to name a few. for ser10, he joins forces with maceo plex (aka maetrik, the moniker he saves for his darker techno productions) to do just that. most known for his recent revered deep-house single, vibe your love on crosstown, plex makes the release the perfect late-night tool. first up is full range, a dubby tech-house number with ominous and increasingly glitchy repetitive vocals that remind the listener of what choi seems to already know - music is the universal language, music is no longer irrelevant. next, half baked, the eps star, manages to perfectly fuse industrial sounds with melody making a blissed-out, deep- house track. mysterious squeaks, hisses and factorial inner workings provide the backdrop while warm time-stretched freestyle vocals guide us through the production. maceos deep remix is around 9-minutes of chicago house inspired sounds layered with snappy high hats and emotive chords.
the two berlin residents and great friends, jin choi (archipel, lesizmo:r) and daso (my best friend, spectral sound) present us with the first summer tune of the year, >teer<. the original has already featured on the 5ysyst compilation and today we feature its new edit. beautifully deep, piano laden and featuring incredible vocal work, >teer< is set for a successful summer season. backing the new edit, are two stunning remixes from systematic regular, rodriguez jr. and the mighty, quenum! >due to the never ending feedback of many friends and djs we have decided to take this very different and outstanding track off the compilation and release it as a single.<
approved support by dubfire, luciano, jimpster, konrad black, tini, terry francis, adam beyer etc.
I AM JUST THE RAIN (TOLGA FIDAN RMX) (GOLDEN MARBLED VINYL)
coloured 12" Vinyl D10.05.11
with age comes maturity, or that is at least what one would normaly think. together the three men (jin choi, walker barnard & tolga fidan) associated with private golds second release, the >i m just the rain< ep, clock in at over 100 years… and yet this release is all thrusting crotches and wriggling teen lust man-booties. only kidding, the songs on this release are nothing if not mature. sure the aforementioned sex is there. in the cooing vocals, stompy bass and 60s psych of the contrapuntal guitar of the eponymous >i m just the rain< or in the jimmy edgar-like funk and grind of >revolution for the lovers<.
ltd new years deal - jin choi returns to archipel to release his second 12inch in archipels vinyl series entitled -dig your own out-. just as masterful as his first archipel 12inch, jins second coming is surrounded by an aura of warmth and is highly jazz influenced providing the birthing ground for his fervently smokey textures. lost and found initiates with warm rhythms and a gentle chord pulse which grows into a sunny melody whose beams set alight slowly drifting chains of saccharine smoke. >hurtlocker< features sultry acoustic guitar and piano melodies at its core which are woven tightly and hypnotically into an expertly stitched dance of subtle textures which wind about each other into the small hours of the morning. >dig your own out< continues on a similar path with a gentle piano melody which is rhythmically set just so in an atmosphere of early morning mist and streams of heady rhythmic waves which are constantly in subtle states of change while they bring with them in tow an ardent series of gently warped textures.
big with richie hawtin, tiefschwarz, loco dice, dubfire, jeff k ... new sub-division lessizmore limited is the occasion for us to produce new artists and to release their work in a beautiful colored 10 inch, 500 copy limited pressing for audiophiles. the first release is focused on two new hopes of 2009: jin choi and dop. jin choi has released many impressive eps on ware, archipel and roman photo. his tracks are subtle, full of details, he looks for instruments and singings you would never expect in a usual dance tune. carnivores is a long and melancholic trip which cannot let you unmoved. french trio dop does a complete rework of the track, adding their own voices, some punchy percussions and a pinch of sex appeal. they keep the original vocals and instruments but use it in such a different way that makes it look funnier.

limited advanced coloured vinyl edition!!! colognes jin choi who has previously released on mathias schaffhäusers label ware has found his way to archipels doorstep and now brings us the exceptionally well written and produced >close to the heat< ep
polaris/serenity shows jin chois more playful, deeper side with beautiful subtle melodies and surprising harmonic changes, latin esque percussions and echo cascades that pull you down to the ground. this is music for the sofas, the dancefloor and the beach. smiling faces guaranteed
nice price deal !!! the album format, in the world of electronic dance music is most often a self-defeating gesture. there is, traditionally, little need for a long-players worth of club bangers and too often artists who try their hands awkwardly at variation and deeper meaning find they have too little experience and come up short, or even empty. not so with jin choi’s a thousand whales of love
with this double cd in early summer already, cocoon gives - just like in the past two years - an acoustic foretaste of what is expecting the clubbers at the nights of the >10 years of craziness< season. incl unreleased tracky by reboot, marco carola, tiga, martinez and more...
