Other HeightsMp3s & jpegs
Jocelyn is next up on the ESHU label with three tracks of deep and smoky techno that mark his solo debut. He is one of the co-founders of the ESHU collective and has contributed collaborative tracks as ESHU, as well as working as J&L (aka Tom Liem and Jocelyn Abell) on Field Records, Deep Sound Channel and this label before now. Opener 'Other Heights' is eight minutes of deeply absorbing dub techno that is stripped back to only the most essential elements but still has a very real presence. A warped, soft edged acid line eventually takes the lead as calming pads stretch out to infinity. 'Maox' is more drum lead, with crisp electro stylings and more mind melting acid lines working you into a trance as the cosmic pads flash things out. Last of all, 'Utan' hits harder but is just as warm and cavernous, with call and response pads and bass leading you off on an intergalactic journey that is cerebral and cinematic. It rounds out a superb EP of immersive techno in fine style.
