Jordan Arts reappears on the premier ethereal techno label, Steyoyoke, this time with Frank Klassen. This exquisite and shadowy vocal track, “Space”, comes paired with none other than Browncoat’s masterful interpretation. An absolute must have for your catalogue.
“Space” (the original mix) hits hard and fast with a 16th note bassline and rapid hat intro. The high octane track continues with the introduction of a matching arpeggio that seems to rise and rise into the beyond with every subsequent bar. The track really begins to come into its own as Jordan Arts’s ghostly and iconic voice slices through the developing tension. Browncoat then takes “Space” to another level. Drawing on his imperious understanding of layering and dynamics, his interpretation includes a drawn out break down and a few bars of stabs and silence before a massive minimal drop we have come to know, love, and expect from the classic melodic techno genre.
“Space” by Jordan Arts and Frank Klassen is a masterfully expressive and organic tune. Paired with Browncoat’s instant classic interpretation, sets the bar VERY high for this year’s highly emotive releases. These artists, these tracks, and this label continues to raise the stakes and leaves all competition behind.
