Accomplished US-synthesist Jeffrey Koepper, also known as Analogue Jeff, recalls “Terrelektra” was conceived as a far away planet of sound where the tracks all merge together like an electronic atmospheric journey through this world.
In the process of creating the music for the 70-minute recording with analogue gear only and being invited to play at the Dutch E-Day 2016 festival, the thought of Europe was a constant presence and an influence. It led eventually to an inspired and rich sounding aural canvas where atmospheres swell up like the tides and reveal rhythmic sequencer pieces with interlocking patterns that constantly evolve and ebb and flow with the tides of this world.
Once again, Mr Koepper’s layering of vintage textures is exquisite and expert all through the album, with this mesmerizing Berlin School vibe shining through deep atmospherics. On the other hand, a tantalizing and lively sequencer feast presents itself on “Interlogic”, the most dynamic piece on “Terrelektra”. Aficionados of Jeffrey’s music shouldn’t hesitate any longer and get it right away. Well done, Jeffrey.
