Jozef K strides into 2020 with his long-awaited debut album on the iconic Nite Grooves label. Entitled Battle, it is a confident and comprehensive 10 track affair that showcases his emotive, unique and meticulous sound.
Jozef K is a very real talent with a unique sound – combining melodic house elements with futuristic soundscapes, Chicago house and early U.K. rave/jungle nostalgia. All drawing from the same emotive palette. He has been releasing music in such a manner for years now, garnering constant high-profile press and artist support. The single from this album, Ladies & Gentlemen We Are In Descent, exemplifying this with personal support from prominent underground figures – DJ Seinfeld, Laurent Garnier, Brame & Hamo, Levon Vincent, Lauren Flax and many more.
In 2020, he will offer his most accomplished release schedule to date across labels such as Rawax, Last Night On Earth, Lossless, Constant Circles, jungle material under as Bluematter and a collaboration with Tin Man. In the midst of this is this masterfully crafted 10 track debut album on Nite Grooves, the long-running and legendary US label. This ambitious full length is further expansion into his unique sound; a roller coaster of emotions through house, ambient and jungle.
Restriction opens up with deeply immersive ambience, soft drums and muffled spoken words, hinting at the excitement to come. Inhale/Exhale is a dreamy, lo-fi house trip. Indigo Isabelline follows with pure, hypnotic bliss, utilising dusty drums and ethereal pads. Track 4 – Tokyo Harmonic Sequence, is an expertly stripped back deep techno cut featuring haunting vocals, brooding bassline and atmospheric soundscape textures.
After the rave nostalgic feeling of L-O-V-E, with its warehouse breakbeats and far-sighted chords, heavily coveted album single Ladies & Gentlemen We Are In Descent is an ethereal, acid track perfect for a sunrise moment. The intense, deep atmospheres continue onto the cavernous, hard hitting T.2.A.T.D.before an all out jungle assault via Caught A Glimpse No
