about

It's been a year and a half since this Parisian DJ and producer debuted on One Eyed Jacks with his Voiron alias and the track "Hoover And Hoover" - a gloomy electro number released as part of the compilation "Dead Cities Vol.1" - but now he's back to the label proper with three original cuts showcasing other facets of his signature sound; a blend of elaborate (almost baroque) melodic dexterity, stark drum-machine funk and remarkably crystalline production. His sound is both candid and complex, quite obviously borrowing cues from some of his biggest influences: AFX, Drexciya and early Warp.

With "Hardchore", "Harlem Juno Jam" and "RN12 91", Voiron brilliantly maps out the dimensionscape of his own plural E-topia, exploring both divine and profane realms within it; emotionally open, ethereal and beatless in the beginning, slowly progressing into tense, exoskeletal Rave territory by the end of it. On remix functions we've got two of the label's most central intervenors, Pal +, and Violet, each offering more muscular and dancefloor-ready reworks of Voiron's originals - with the former even stepping into early Progressive territory, reminding us of some of Leftfield and Hard Hands' best moments.


IVAN SMAGGHE
"PAL + seems to be the one for me."

PRINS THOMAS
"Woohoo! This is proper magick!"

PHILIP SHERBURNE
"Oh man, this is great. "Hardchore" is brilliant."

JOKERS OF THE SCENE
"Trancetastic! My favorite OEJ release to date? Something for everyone here... and all for me."

CARDOPUSHER
"Loving it, specially RN12 91 + Pal+ remixes, early warp feeling."

SHADOW DANCER
"This is fantastic.
Hardchore shows a real understanding and love for 90s prog trance and the other tracks have a great authentic detroit techno vibe to them. Violet's remix is lovely melodic acid too, which is very tricky to pull off. Pal+ remix does indeed sound like early Leftfield."

NEOVIOLENCE
"Dope as always! Loving RN12 91 and Pal+ remix. Will defo drop one of these on saturday during my set after legendary I-F."
