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
