Max Jacob – Encounter [GIB040]
Label: Gibbon Records
Release date: 2018-04-16
Catalog number: GIB040
The deep, housey grooves and uplifting tones of Max Jacob are no stranger to Gibbon, and Max delights the ear once more with his two track EP “Encounter”.
The title track introduces a driving prog tinged warmth, distant vocals and hidden FX call out for a rendezvous wit your inner senses.
Danie Klose takes this intimacy into a meeting of nature and synthetic, organic air washes over us carrying the sonic delights weaved together from the original encounter, whilst adding his own appointment of style.
Gracing the B-side is “Into The Unknown”, a hybrid of progressive and deep grooving techy house, this is a track that creeps up on you, pulling you ever higher and higher, coming up… coming up… Into the unknown…
Benwaa twists the entire EP on its head, taking us deeply Into The Unknown territories, veiled beneath the uplifting message of the original. Revealing a darker and intense direction, soundscapes and atmospheres taken from uncharted and concealed paths entwine with one another to create this journey laid out ahead.
