With recent appearances on Boiler Room and the Groove Magazine Podcast plus sets across Asia and Europe, Jamaica Suk’s fearsome techno sounds are winning fans far and wide. A year on from her debut release on her own Gradient label comes this stunning second volume.
Jamaica’s Whispers, released on the vinyl imprint she launched last year, is a three-track digital release with a fourth vinyl-only track.
“Fallen,” our premiered track today, sets it out of the stall immediately, with filtered down acidic bass playing out a jagged groove. A manic counterpart mimics its rhythm but dizzily delays off the beat to create a rugged, funk-fuelled feel. Cymbal rides pitch up and down; unidentified snarls of FX mutate around the edges; all the while the sharp hi-hats keep the metronomic heartbeat going.
A1 Jamaica Suk – “Stinger Ray”
A2 Jamaica Suk – “Fallen”
B1 Jamaica Suk – “Whispers”
B2 Jamaica Suk – “Twilight Rain”
Jamaica Suk’s Whispers is out on vinyl this Dec 3rd and available digitally on Jan 14th
