Jack Bacon – Dark Matter – SLR013 available on Sub-Label Recordings – Black – Techno Record Label.
With his debut release on Sub-Label Black, Jack Bacon brings his original style of Techno with the “Dark Matter EP”.
In short, this is a wonderfully rich soundscape of tones and synths. Which weave in and out of the precise, groove based drums. The three track EP showcases a developing techno producer Making a name for himself with his own take on the Techno genre blended through progressive styles.
To begin with, the EP opens with “Icarus”, a dark and punchy track that slices through the space and ambience created around the synth work. This is a percussive driven track that is continuously driving forward, with an infectious pulse and groove.
Following on with “Aeris”, a more subdued and experimental track that really shows the depth of Jack’s production skills. In the mean time, the rich synth parts hold the track together while the sparsity of the drums create a deeper sense of progression throughout the track.
Finally, the EP closes with “Orbis”. Also with a fantastic sound palette that gives the rich tones of the synths a space of their own around the strong bass tone and deep drum grooves. A brilliant way to close a debut EP for the label.
