With the 2018 release of his debut LP, The Ineffable Truth, G Jones laid claim to the classification “bass visionary.” History repeats itself on Tangential Zones.

The producer’s self-proclaimed “epilogue” to last year’s seminal showing, G Jones’ latest long-form electronic endeavor sees him spread his anomalous approach to low-end animation across five album inclusions. Two of them, “Dark Artifact” and “Drift (Acid Mix),” preceded Tangential Zones, offering glimpses of the forward thinking bass that G Jones would later deliver.

From both singles, listeners could discern that Tangential Zones would be a tightly stitched, highly textured delve into bass constructions. As the previously unreleased inclusions, “Immortal Light,” “Dream Fatigue,” and “See Right Through,” illustrate in tandem with the two album predecessors, Tangential Zones is just that.

From its frenetic, scurrying beats to its quirky samples (for reference, the shattering glass in the LP’s opening number), Tangential Zones is the musical petri dish that captures and places G Jones’ cerebral, inventive style on display. Listeners, it’s time to look. Tangential Zones is out now via G Jones’ imprint, Illusory Records.

EPROM’s ‘AIKON’ is a clinic in sound design and arrangement

EPROM, a certified bass sequencing master, delivers his five-track extended play, AIKON—a record bound for reverie, presented by Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint. The Portland-based producer has established himself as a leading innovator amongst fellow artists and fans alike, adding two unreleased tracks to this year’s already impressive arsenal.

Already released tracks include the G Jones collaboration, “Daemon Vail,” minimal cut “The Cat,” and the wild ride that is “Hope.” The new tracks include the “Shirow Softworks,” a trip-hop inspired beat with melodic synth concoctions for a potent soundscape, and “Phoneme Gothik,” a scintillating work of sequencing timbre through bouts of bass and slicing synths.

With acid-tinged hip-hop to searing garage mutations, complex synth and drum arrangement splatter the audio canvas like a sonic Jackson Pollock.

In a press release, EPROM explains, “Each tune represents a unique point in my trajectory. For me, this release represents a step onto a bigger stage. I have always been reluctant to fully embrace the ethos of dance music, so I have previously kept my work underground, and to a certain degree, intentionally inaccessible. This EP is my take on pure rave music.”

Catch the illustrious sound maestro live with upcoming shows at Bassrush at Exchange LA on November 21, aboard Friendship in Miami on January 6, and at Montreal’s Igloofest on February 8.

G Jones revives an old classic, with ‘Drift (Acid Mix)’

G Jones revives an old classic, with ‘Drift (Acid Mix)’G Jones Maclyn Bean

Audacious experimentalist, G Jones has taken an acid-fueled stroll down memory lane. His newest release appears in the form of a rendition of “Drift,” first featured on the bass connoisseur’s debut EP way back in 2012, before getting the VIP treatment just a year later.

As gripping as it is frenetic, “Drift (Acid Mix)” emboldens Jones to flex the production wizardry that he’s known for, having been donned “the most gifted Ableton beatmaker” ever seen by none other than DJ Shadow himself. With the cut’s heavy infusion of acid synth work, the latest release takes on an audible flavor a bit unlike Jones’ typical work, while still possessing many of the Cali-based producer’s signature elements, from his hyper-attentive drumlines to the flipbook of melodic climaxes that his work is commonly lauded for. Organized chaos at its finest, the newest take on “Drift” never loses focus among the clutter of such a high-paced production.

“Drift (Acid Mix)” comes ahead of G Jones’ recently announced Tangential Zones, the respective epilogue to 2018’s widely embraced The Ineffable Truth.

G Jones gives streamers an introduction to the sound that will characterize the “epilogue” to 2018’s The Ineffable Truth, which the producer has titled, Tangential Zones. The experimental bass maven first caught fans’ attention with his Twitter declaration that the follow-up EP was well on its way; now, he holds it with the debut single from Tangential Zones, “Dark Artifact.”

Reverberating bass lines blare abundantly on the chaotic offering. The beat skitters as its arrangement dynamically shifts, creating constructive plot twists that pepper the near-three-minute number. Streamers recognize it: it’s the arresting ID that Nocturnal Wonderland attendees lusted after following G Jones’ live set. Newly available in its full-length form, and with the low end reliably amplified in all of its window-rattling glory, “Dark Artifact” provides a potent prelude to what awaits on Tangential Zones

Several East Coast stops on G Jones‘ tour have been postponed following the esteemed bass artist’s announcement of his mother’s passing. Management took to G Jones’ Twitter account to inform fans that approaching dates in Atlanta, D.C., and New York City would be rescheduled. G Jones’ camp noted that they would continue to keep listeners and promoters alike updated should more cancellations ensue.

G Jones later shared several photographs of his mother on the social platform and thanked fans for “reaching out with messages of love and support.” The producer additionally asked his followers to kindly respect his privacy and grief by not addressing the topic with him in person. “I will raise the topic if I want to discuss it,” G Jones stated.

We at Dancing Astronaut offer our condolences to G Jones.

Eprom and G Jones take a no-holds-barred approach to bass on forcible new single, ‘Daemon Veil’

Eprom and G Jones‘ first collaborative endeavor since 2017’s EP, Acid Disk, “Daemon Veil” is an aggressively textured single that showcases the producers’ shared bass sensibilities. An ominous bassline merges with eerie chords in the early seconds of the collaboration. These elements rise together in simmering synchronicity as the track’s commanding vocal cuts into the instrumental beginning, instructing listeners to raise their torches and their lighters as the bassline plunges.

The jagged bassline descends further downward into sonic grit that spares streamers no smoothness. A breakdown that occurs just around the midway point tempers the bombastic bass that bodies listeners. Comparatively, more melodic tones offer a break from the heavy bass action as the climactic joint project concludes. “Daemon Veil” is out now via Deadbeats. The production will resurface on Eprom’s forthcoming EP, Aikon.

Orbit Playlist: Opiuo lays it the funk down before heading back to Lightning In A BottleOpiuo Press Shot 1 1 1

Bass breeder of a most funk-infused variety, Opiuo has cooked up a special playlist for Dancing Astronaut ahead of his performance at central California’s next round of Lightning In A Bottle festival, on May 8.

The New Zealand-born, Australian resident, Opiuo takes listeners through the chromatic length of his aural crates, with tracks spanning tender, melodic house (Lane 8‘s “Atlas”) to foreboding mid-tempo electro (1788-L‘s “Cyberspace”). Like-minded funk and experimental bass producers run abound, with additional offerings from CloZee, G Jones, Big Gigantic, and of course, some innovative firepower from Opiuo himself to adequately ready Lightning In A Bottle attendees for a splendidly strange DJ set.

I’m so excited to be back at Lightning In A Bottle, one of my favourite festivals in North America,” says Opiuo. “Here are a bunch of songs I love from a bunch of friends and legends playing on the weekend. You can expect a tonne of brand new music from me on the night as we dance away into the bass heavy funkadelicoblivion.

Tickets to Lightning In A Bottle, held at Buena Vista Lake, as well as general festival information, can be found here.
