"A Kind Robin" puts you on its back and takes you on an adventure into layers and layers of bliss. Even after a dozen listens I keep hearing new details. "Latent Space" is the place for lasers and lucidity, done with precision and care. Shout out to Four Tet for the recommendation and to Blank Mind for this beauty. J Chrysalis with back-to-back 24-bit bangers.
First heard latent space at no symbols last year, has since become one of my most played tunes. A kind robin was a lovely surprise and is a versatile DJ tool as well as a brilliant tune. Essential release!
Favorite track: Latent Space.
BLNK011 is the debut release by J Chrysalis. A Kind Robin and Latent Space are two club tracks which have been quietly making their mark over the past year since first being heard on Rinse via Ben UFO. Produced between London and France in 2017-18, these tracks explore grief and transformation.
A beautifully arranged melancholic roller, A Kind Robin guides us through an Escherian wormhole with birdsong. On the flip, Latent space is a Gqom meets Robert Abel dreamscape - joyfully queer and luminous.
These carefully crafted tracks are defined by a bucolic sensibility and underlying intensity, yielding their own vivid self-contained worlds whilst remaining effective and club conscious. It is a bold introduction to a refreshing and singular producer.
