Justin James – Beyond Zebra (OCTBLK034, Octopus Black)

“When a country’s electronic music scene punches as heavily as Canada’s, there is always a weight of expectation on artists emerging from its ranks. Fortunately, Justin James’ talent, energy and ambition have allowed him to climb the heights of his illustrious countrymen. Justin hails from Windsor, Ontario the same city as his label boss and techno icon Richie Hawtin. With Richie, Dubfire and many others as close, guiding influences, James has used this ammunition to fire his way to international recognition.”
Enter the weekend with Justin James EP ‘Beyond Zebra’ on Octopus Black, the Spanish label run by Sian.

Tracklist: Justin James – Beyond Zebra (OCTBLK034, Octopus Black)

01. Beyond Zebra
02. Beyond Zebra ( Dubspeeka Remix )
03. Frayed Nerves

01. Beyond Zebra
Slow and steadily, but though forceful the track is driving you forward. Delayed and metallic are the stabs, in combination with the atmosphere it sounds like the end of time.

02. Beyond Zebra ( Dubspeeka Remix )
Dubspeeka adaption provides a bit more uptempo. Also an ageless track.

03. Frayed Nerves
Long stretched synth shots in contrast to a minimal bassline. A story which allows herself plenty of time with the resolution … she is dragging you deep in space.

Conclusion: Classic.

Buy Release: Digital
