low jack - garifuna variations (12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // low jack
LABEL // l.i.e.s. (us)
CAT // lies044lp


Originally composed for a live performance commissioned by the Quai Branly Museum in Paris, French producer Low Jack was given access to the museum's vast music library and used it as a basis for this project. His research focused on the Garifuna people of Honduras, composing a live set by sampling selected pieces from the library's music collection. Despite no initial intention to release this performance, the live recording was later brought to the attention of L.I.E.S. Records, resulting in Low Jack returning to the studio to re-create his set, thus culminating in this LP. Rhythmic, tense, and hypnotic electronic music that lives in the grey area many are unwilling to step into. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy.
