Jack Jakhira is back with another round of progressive goodness with his three tracker, “Heartstrings EP”. Born in the UK and now residing in Belgium Jack is fresh off the back of his last BP outing “Truly EP”.
The title track “Heartstrings” kicks us off into an epic ride through progressive grooves. The track intros with a strong kick and a mixture of crispy hats, as the track progresses cool funky house chords begin to show with a super smooth bass bringing up the rear. On the break things take a twist as the sound transforms into a maelstrom of melodies which adds a very rich contrast to how the track began. Quite innovative stuff here and a must for any DJ box.
“What Could Have Been” is up next and be prepared for another epic journey. Smooth kick-hat intro, classic style. A funky bassline coupled with stunning synth work lead us up to the break where a rich pad takes over, filled with warm sweet melodies and a distant sounding saxophone. The talents from this artist continue to impress, this track is so complex yet it is something that you will relate to very quickly, superb stuff.
“Other People” rounds up this quality EP in style. A deep and soulful vibe is garnered from the groovy bassline and the multitude of instruments on offer. The arrangement here is expertly crafted as patterns are evolved, again we see very complex structures which are easily identifiable due to the wonderful craftsmanship. A must have on any playlist for sure.
