The EON label’s fourth vinyl release features an original from Birmingham producer Jayson Wynters with Chicago innovator Hieroglyphic Being on the remix. Wynters invites us ever deeper into his nebulous deep techno world with a superb new single ‘Filtered Xploits.’ It’s a punchy but dynamic cut with lush ambient pads smeared across a cosmic sky while chattery percussion and lithe synth power onwards. It has a futuristic soul that recalls early Detroit techno and might be his best work yet. Jamal Moss is on reworks and in his hands, ‘Filtered Xploits’ becomes a brilliantly raw and textured track with layer upon layer of fractured melody and gurgling acid. The prickly, jacked up drums will make an impact on any floor, and as the chords shine through the mix they bring a sense of hope and optimism.
Delsin welcomes Jayson Wynters into the fold for a four-track EP that embodies techno as a vibrant, expressive artform with the ability to uplift. On The Affect Heuristic, Wynters strides forth with an electrifying machine language, calling to mind the feverish, psychedelic tweaking and layering of visionaries like Dan Curtin and Lee Purkis (In Sync). Across four tracks, Wynters pivots between distinctly Motor City-indebted funk, springy electro-techno and vivid, immersive soundchasms.
Life Notes returns with its 3rd transmission and presents the Mentality EP. After starting the label under his Motion Process moniker, Life Recorder is welcoming on board 2 of his favorite producers with the Birmingham UK based producer, Jayson Wynters and Taelue. Guided by a natural artistic and human being connection, the 3 producers and dj’s are sharing the wax here to present their vision of deep, meditative house/techno speaking to the mind and the dancefloor.
While perfectly fitting the deep house cabinet, this EP taps on various styles within this genre. Jayson Wynters sets the pace with Sherella’s Kiss; a powerful groove and beautiful chord pads embedded in an upbuilding percussive atmosphere. This is a very personal track from Jayson and this dedication to ‘Sherella’ is testimony to the immortality that can be found in the power of a soulmate. Italian artist Duccio delivers a melodic track with mediative vocals while Ukraine’s Kiddmisha gets his well deserved second appearance on Batti Batti with an immersive electro cut. Hailing from Chicago, the artist Weakmassive makes his debut to the label with a smooth acidic track which could be a perfect opening or an encore to a long night out.
Ornate Music welcomes Birmingham talent Jayson Wynters. Wynters serves two original tracks that further shape out his deeply hypnotic approach to house music. Alongside the immersive allure of Wynters’ originals, rising talent Caldera offers up a stripped back, meditative broken beat remix of “Ancient Tones”. The Latitude EP is a natural fit for Ornate, giving Wynters and Caldera free reign to show off their uniquely mesmerizing styles of contemporary house and techno.
Jayson Wynters returns to Don’t Be Afraid with four more strident constructions. Rooted in classic machine funk and loop craft we take off with the gradually pummelling percussive hypnotiser “Beta” and crash land to the soothing synthesis and deep acid textures of “The Kansei Method”. In between we’re treated to the soft-but-stern swoons of the white knuckle “One Hundred N Forty” and bashed senseless by the warehouse crumbling jacker “Into The Void”.
The G man found himself a protege. After the odd 50+ solo releases offered through his Phoenix G imprint Mr.G has found himself a young producer that has a style that connects with the Phoenix G output thus far. Mysterious Jayson Wynters offers a 4 track record that is hazy, technoid and threads into deep territories every now and then. ‘Unfamiliar Territories EP’ opens with the deep down perc jam named ‘Momentum’ a moody dubbish track that sets the tone for things to come. The title track offers a more emotive ride that’s being supported by tough saw basses and windy pads that float throughout. The B side openen Science is a tough house cut that is reminiscent of the glory days of US deephouse and sounds as a solid classic rather than a new cut. The closing down bit ‘1 more’ is the same story. Firmly produced drum patterns with classic bass sounds and hazy pads.
