Jacob Korn – From A Distant Point Of View EP || LOTD 06 (2010)
Review of „Left of the dial“
Jacob Korn’s debut EP on LOTD comes on the heels of critically acclaimed releases on labels such as Running Back, Dolly, Permanent Vacation & Astrolab. Jacob’s „Distant Point of View EP“ for LOTD continues his excursions into the realms of the Chicago jack & Detroit tech traditions.
Jacob Korn was born in Germany in the early 80’s. His sound is influenced by Kraftwerk and the sound of 90’s techno and house music. After a decade of sowing different musical seeds Jacob Korn is back in the straight 4/4-domain. Given his history in glitch inspired electronica and hiphop, he continually experiments in new recording styles and production techniques, while developing his own audiovisual tools for media arts performances. His debut album, different EPs and remixes under various names for european labels from Germany, France and England were fruits of this work.
The 3 tracks on the „Distant Point of View EP“ focus on the sound of synthesizers, drum computers and samplers, following in the tradition of the Detroit and Chicago era. „Distant Point of View“ is a 13 and a half minute intense journey into raw slo mo deep house and techno territory, a heavy footed kick juxtaposed with lush washes and synth stabs. „My Day“ , a collaboration with up and coming German producer Flokke, is a fast paced and hypnotic dance floor monster while „whatyagonnado“ slows things down (a bit) with a more atmosperic deep house track, yet still maintaining elements of jack. http://www.lotd.ca/distant.html
