Jad & The 'Space Swingerz' 12"
Jad & The is an Australian producer based in Berlin, where he’s been putting out consistently cool and sleek dusty house on the likes of Toy Tonics and Banoffee Pies. Jad is now joining Shall Not Fade for his debut on their Seasons Series imprint, showcasing a selection of tracks that ooze space age sounds and cybernostalgia.
Space Swingerz EP feels like the soundtrack to a classic science fiction film; opening with ‘Dance (Can’t Dance Mix)’, the most house-oriented track on the record, a grooving and smooth party piece that has just a hint of the electro inflections to come. The title track itself is a swirling electro track filled with popping futuristic synths and spaced out pads, leading into ‘Industrial I-Beam’ that swaps out the ambience for a deep funky bassline - headsy and ready for a darkened Berlin club. ‘Circum Navigator’ is a clean-cut but hypnotic piece of nineties revival, while ‘OK, Computer’ taps into the sci-fi edge of the EP, the sounds of early internet imaginations of the future. The digital bonus track, ‘Computer Teens, Acid Dreams’ is well-described by its name - it’s a sweeping, acidic roller straight out of hyperspace.
