Vancouver-based producer and performing artist JGarrett has been heavily involved in the techno scene for nearly twenty-five years now. In 2012 he started the Subspec Music imprint which became a home for many of his productions along with labels such as Perc Trax, Gobsmacked, Decoy and Dirty Minds.
JGarrett’s heavy hitting, industrial productions have picked up support from techno giants such as Dax J, Dave Clarke, Electric Indigo, Mark Broom and Kyle Geiger, in addition to gaining him sets all over North America. Leverage sees JGarrett return to SubSensory for his latest EP on the imprint following the likes of Sergio Vilas, Dmux and label owner JAK.
‘Unsupported Fulcrum’ gets things rolling with roaring modulations, shimmering kicks and energetic grooves before ‘Leverage’ offers up stabbing melodies, driving synth swells and tantalising tones. Partisan, the new moniker of Mick Finucan, who has releases on ARTS, Decoy and Subspec, provides an uncompromising techno remix of ‘Leverage’ through shaky drums, haunting oscillations and popping swirls.
‘Effort Vs. Load’ keeps the momentum flowing through dubbed-out echoes, resonating low end and alleviating pads bouncing around the effervescent aesthetics. ‘Mechanical Advantage’ finishes things off with heavy distortion fused with undulating tension and high-hats maintaining the force of the track.
