Following releases on Osiris Tempa and Cold Recordings Jack Gibbons embracing the luxury of isolation 'Depatterning' is compiled from two years of recording realising a vision of Gibbon's passion for soundsystem music rave culture and technology A self confessed tech nerd Gibbons built the record experimenting with granular and modular synths rewiring drum machines and mangling sounds with hardware 'I like to create music by experimenting with new ideas and mechanics and letting tracks evolve and this was no different I had a pretty free reign and just tried new things and looked at the results' Lead track and recent 12 Inch 'Regicide' repackages the mid1990s jungle experience into 140bpm breakbeat science 'IPA' gives a sly nod to the Hereford pub staple through jamming techno synths while the trinity of 'Y O UI#' sandwiches atmospheric ambience between Gibbon's takes on dark 2step and crushing rave The restless 'Last One In The In The' pays tribute to the allnight dancer 'It's like that bloke who is there from start to finish eyeballs popping out of his head just dancing like a maniac all through the dance we've all been there I had an idea for a video for it about him but never got round to it It'd be like the Inspector Norse video But in England so gritty and depressing' 'Depatterning' demonstrates Gibbons' individual ability to seamlessly fuse sounds textures and moods from jungle to techno and everything in between 'Most of the inspiration for the album came from purely wanting to make something my own The challenge for me was to pin down a sonic and craft an entire album's worth of material out of it which for me was difficult as I tend to get bored and move on quickly It feels good to finally be able to share this'
