vamos scorcho

seems like jega - variance

Recommended Posts

album has extreme potential. you have to listen to the whole thing to see it. its like a mix of all the more well known artists all in one. and imo done just as skillfully. and it's cool

the beats on the second half of the album are awesome sounding. it probably bores me a tiny bit because i haven't listened to it much since summer 09. but the craftsmanship really is up there with the best of them.

i love geometry and the phlax ep, but i was underwhelmed when i heard variance. the beats sounded thin, melodies seemed to meander, and i thought the vocal samples were overused and kind of annoying. i made that judgement pretty hastily though, i'll probably give it another chance some time.

i felt like it was more developed than his past releases. personally i found the melodies to be very intriguing and the vocal samples to be tastefully employed.

I love Jega. His beats are special and have their own signature.

 

And their good.

I"ll take it as possessive.

 

It's pretty great. Being a Jega fan for all that time, what's most interesting is that Variance took 9 years to come out. Mike P had reserved the ZIQ 024 catalogue number for that album since like the beginning of the label.

That might be the problem right there. I agree that it's bloody well done though.

Anyone have the 2004 leak of Variance lying around. I remember quite enjoying one track on it, but can't remember what it was called.

 

I think it was this, has that classic IDMz sound...

Eitherway I remember liking the leak more than the album that came out years later.

no, but variance always sets my jega cravings straight. i still listen to it quite often and its sounds are keeping nice and crisp. really warm melodies

Gave Geometry a whirl. Still my favourite Jega album, the title track and Inertia are so nice.

no comparing with 'geometry', so lovely in every way

 

edit: 'pitbull' will likely always be my favorite trac, since the first time i had it

I love Jega. Geometry is his masterpiece, but he has so much good stuff. He's been very influential for me.

I've only heard Spectrum and the early Skam material but Geometry is still high on my list of 'to get's, along with 'Variance' afterward.

 

Still my fav Jega track...

Pitbull's my fave too! I always imagine some super slow motion film of a pitbull running towards the camera, muscles shimmering, jowls flopping...

i think the problem with variance is that it was hyped for soooo long, especially by dylan himself. He made some ridiculous quotes about how good it was going to be. And it's good yeah for sure, but it's not even his best work.

It`s a good album this, I like that it`s an album of two halves, the lighter/warmer and then the darker crazier stuff. Prefer the first half though, but overall it`s a good solid album.

 

Not heard his previous two.

i don't think there was anything wrong with the jega prerelease hyper-enthusiasm. i think the quality of variance can comfortably be compared with his previous works, granted the sounds are quite different. i'm not just being contrary, i think jega was right to be so solidly enthusiastic about this release and i'm very pleesed by it.

 

the length of time we might wait for the next is obviously anyones guess.
