This 8 song dream-pop / drum&bass record perfectly skirts the lines between the music scenes Jackson takes part. With shoegaze and bedroom-pop on the inclusivity driven emo side and elements of jungle and happy-hardcore to represent the burgeoning PLUR focused rave scene.
I asked Jackson about their process and influences.
Here's what he had to say:
Q1: Are there any artists who have given you solid production advice that you would like to shout out?
A1: The first thing that comes to mind is when my friend primary color introduced me to the HAAS effect for widening mixes. I think I use it on every track, and I think it sounds great and really makes a Reese bass sound HUGE. I didn't get a whole lot of feedback on this record, mostly because it was all put together during quarantine, and I couldn't play any of these tunes out. However, right before [Covid-19] lockdown I had been on tour with mikey303 (aka skybox), and watching him make acid and dnb tunes on eurorack synthesizers every night really opened my eyes to sound design ideas outside of Ableton or samplers. Also not feedback either, but local Strider put out some sample packs that are all over this record, in whatever mutated state, so thank you Primary Effect, Mikey303, Strider, Dogs on Acid forums, an youtube tutorials.
Q2: What were your non musical influences for this release?
Favourite tracks: fitton green and new saturday
FFO: Graz, Phantasy Star, yeule, x/o, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō and Azuria Sky
