JON JENKINS
Beyond City Light
CD, Spotted Peccary Music, 2005
"Beyond City Light"s the second cd of Jon Jenkins, who already made a favourable impression in the early days of the Spotted Peccary label with his album "Flow" and his collaborative album "Continuum" with Paul Lackey.

The album opens with beautiful deep ambience by means of vast textural plains and ethereal vocals. For me, it is the best track on the album. Thereafter comes a varied pallet of slightly rhythmic and grooved sonic scenery in which guitar is also embedded.

Jon comments to "Zzyzx Road", which is the second track on the album, and it really kicks off the sonic journey, introducing more groovy but still highly visual music.
On some tracks, the sparkling influence of Erik Wollo is evident. He is one of the guest-musicians on the album.


This hour long, highly cinematic album offers something for every electronic music fan. It delves into deep atmospheres, but also visiting the ambience of the real world beyond us all.
This is a great sounding cd which deserves a high recommendation!
