Far away from the usual blah, blah, here are a few words by Jin himself about his music :
The two tracks of this EP reflect two different sides of music that I am continously exploring… One is the more vibrant, colorfoul, melancholic, emotional and melodic side that I love in music… Music that is like a film for the ears and tells a story. This side is obviously reflected in « In the mirror ». And what I love in this track is, that it actually has a deep, yet pushing tech-house groove, while it also offers this second musical layer where it is all about melodies and a laid back feeling. It shows both sides in a nice way, and so I am really happy with the message coming along with this track. The other side that I always have been fascinated by is the dubby side of techno, which is reflected in « You are no good ». I tried to incoorperate soul and a techno edge to this dubby feeling without drifting too much into well known cliches and stereotypes. I don’t know if I succeeded, but I am quite happy with that track as well… This EP is not meant to be complementary in terms of two pieces of a puzzle coming together. It is more – as said – showing two different fields of music that I explore. Yet one thing keeps maybe both tracks together: my attempt to make all my music to sound organic, consistent and emotional… Anyway… a lot of typcial artist nonsense talk. Enjoy the music and decide on your own, if you can dig it. And try to catch up with my next release on Archipel, which will give a full picture on my music at the time being. I produced all the tracks over the last few months, and I think this tracks altogether reflect my general approach to music.
Peace and Love Jin
