having discovered electronic music at the end of the 90’s, thomass grew up going to raves where trance was one of the main styles played at this massive partys. the influence it had on him was planted deeply into his dna and this ep is the interpretation he has these days of the genre. he moved on to different pastures soon after but the style was already in him. thomass now takes the old fashioned elements he still likes and takes them to new directions. fueled by gated chords, dreamy arpeggios, trippy vocals and percussions this tracks are destined to take you back into the past and bring you right back to the present. forget what you learned. trance not trance.
HEAD REJECTION (FEAT BOOT & TAX REMIX)(140 G VINYL)
12" Vinyl, 140 g UK04.12.17
after kicking off with a strong various artists release, mexican label calypso records returns to showcase the talents of argentine producer thomass jackson, who has previously been spotted on gomma amongst other labels. head rejection takes on a ghoulish 1970s vibe that sports a little schlocky horror and a little spaghetti western in its discoid grooves, while witzelsutch feels equally vintage but with a more cosmic lilt to its oddball tones. creepy pc gets more of that noirish goodness lurking around the mix, and then boot & tax come on board to remix head rejection with a heads down tribal patter that keeps the atmosphere of the original intact.
it s not often we get an insight into the electronic music of south america, so all hail the arrival of calypso from mexico s inigo vontier and argentina s thomass jackson. the tracks featured certainly strike a unique chord, with mendrix weaving a seductive, noirish tale full of brooding guitar and slow ticking drums, while -colossio- takes on a darkwave tone on the wonderfully creepy -esta en mi-. the label bosses tackle the b side, with jackson s -fantomas- sporting a sharper dancefloor sensibility without ever resorting to obvious tropes. vontier rounds the ep out with the weirdo boogie throwdown of -namaste-, sure to pique the interest of anyone locked into the sound coming out of the speakers.
thomass jackson is a new entry in the gomma crew. and he fits perfect: his style? outsider house - or lets call it: sex house! this shit is soo damn funky and spartanic at the same time - you want to go straight to make babies! thomass is part of the new vibrant mexico city electronic scene.
