City In The Clouds EP

Kontrapunkt
Tim Jackiw
Apart from the typical techno sources, Tim Jackiw takes inspiration from composers such as Vangelis and Kraftwerk’s synth innovations. These influences are writ large throughout ‘City In The Clouds’ — chilling strings swoop and swirl their way over the chugging bass on ‘Tension’, while spellbinding piano lines and fragile synth melodies are intertwined with the surging bassline of ‘Planetary Tide’. Jackiw’s diverse musical palette, as well as his ability to magic up pulsating grooves — just check the warbling, acid-soaked arrangement on ‘Light Cycle’ — combine to make ‘City’ one of the most musical, and danceable, techno EPs of the year.
