These days, we’re all familiar with Jan Jelinek‘s trademark brand of dusty, dubbed-out, jazz-sampling downtempo explorations. That wasn’t the case when Loop Finding Jazz Records, his acclaimed debut album, first appeared back in 2001.
It has since become an in-demand item, making this reissue more than handy. It remains a fine album; a blazed shuffle through a sonic world where dub techno, ambient, minimal house, jazz and downtempo grooves and seductive vinyl crackle merge into one intoxicating hybrid sound.
It’s not showy and over-the-top, but rather becalmed and subtly seductive. In other words, it’s still a brilliant and if you don’t own already own a copy, you should add this to your cart sharpish.
