REVIEW: JakoJako presents Metamorphose

"Metamorphose" is the title of JakoJako's debut album for Bigamo, to which he continues to dedicate all his creative resources to making his career as a producer a more complex, subtle and profound musical proposal, which covers all possible limits. Because he followed his instinct and started producing what he really felt he should do.

JakoJako has made perfect use of the mandatory extra studio time regulated by the pandemic, developing and fleshing out a sound that he instantly turned heads with, as soon as he burst onto the scene in 2019 with his release on Leisure System.

"Metamorphose" is a declaration of intentions in the latest trajectory of this artist, with more desire to experiment than to reaffirm his usual formulas. A album that offers us a deep journey full of textures that evoke freedom, like the sea breeze or a deep breath in the middle of nature. This renewed bet plays a lot, on its rails, with light-darkness.

JakoJako consolidates itself with this album with a more refined sound, but also raised from a creative point of view necessary to avoid falling into lethargy or boredom, to which the genre tends by inertia. From each note arises an accumulation of harmonic and melodic beauty, where the sounds evolve as we approach the central corpus of the theme, maintaining a constant rhythm, which makes us keep our feet on the ground, while the rest of the sounds free us. . and shoot us to the beyond

"Metamorphose" is a rarity that connects this producer with new sounds, but without losing its festive essence, where the differences between musical styles and eras mix and harmonize, with tremendous lightness. JakoJako has shown us this with his album, because in dark times, good music is not only made of electronic darkness.
