DJ Mag - "Thrilling, pitch-dark techno ... ‘Vision’ evokes her minimalist and ambient fascinations to make an enveloping, distorted dancefloor brawler…"
Mixmag - "Pumps along like a steamboat. 8/10"
Jamaica is no stranger to big-room headliner spots in both the US and Europe, including regular international appearances with red-hot Berlin-based queer collective Pornceptual. Her productions have the drive and power to match, as exhibited on a steady stream of finely-crafted releases on labels like Face to Face, Sub tl, and L.A.G., plus her own vinyl-only label Gradient.
In "Clockwise," she ventures deeper into grimy analog dreamworlds, without losing any of the momentum and power of her signature sound. The titular track pairs a relentless, explosive kick with fanciful percussion and wind-up mechanics, in detailed dancefloor cinematics. "Two Moons" weaves rich, fuzzy ambience that floats above a thunderous slow groove. "Vision" completes the triptych with a touch of dark whimsy that dances atop more four on the floor action.
Argentinian up-and-comer Pulse One, who has made a name on Polegroup, Dasha Rush's Fullpanda, and others, adds a massive, energetic remix. His take on "Clockwise" seems ready for a dark, throbbing crowd in Buenos Aires or Berlin.
