The Turin-based artist Jamahr is back with another EP of dance floor weaponry.
Immediately upon listening, you can hear that these tracks are a sign of a producer in fine form. Taking time to refine his craft, the steady stream of releases from the Italian artist has seen great support from the likes of Petre Inspirescu pushing this serene, soundscape-inspired sound.
‘The Vibe’ heads straight for the dance floor with a simple and infectious rhythm, bringing sleek drum machine beats towards a menacing acid bass that is gasping for the dance floor. Moods meander through a more peak-time sound than some of his previous work, bending trippy synth work over snappy snares and sultry vocal samples setting the vibe.
Jamahr voiced that the EP was driven by working closely with his Korg Electribe Sx, drawing on acid and electro influences to create this chunky, clubby sound. Elements are punchy and warm, leaning into the character of analogue machines and their no-frills approach to production.
True to the vision of his label so far, the four-track EP provides a variety of moods. Albeit staying somewhere between the fringes of house and techno, moods meander through a range of emotions. The A2’s ‘Collapse’ hones in on a more UK garage tinge, working slick, snappy snares with a menacing bassline.
‘One More Thing’ features a close friend of the label Drumi for a feisty acid jam, whilst ‘Rolling Groove’ heads back into peak time energy with a nasty squelched. Outside of his production works, Jamahr is regularly spinning records in and around the Italian region, as well as playing with Frank Lopez under their Propaganda Soundsystem alias.
