As longstanding fans of one of the most accomplished producers in electronic music today, Kompakt were more than delighted to release JOHN TEJADA s album PARABOLAS one year ago, a carefully arranged body of work exhibiting ʼ stunning amounts of musicality while dauntlessly delving into the depths of its own sound. Now, Kompakt readies the next strike from this exceptional musician with his latest full length THE PREDICTING MACHINE. *It was a slightly unexpected turn of events for both the label and the mastermind behind such massive tracks as “Mono On Mono” or “Sweat On The Walls”, when both decided to release Parabolas on Kompakt, but it felt immediately like a perfect match. So perfect indeed, that even Tejadaʼs own label Palette Recordings is now distributed by Kompakt. “The previous album was made before I knew what I would do with it”, says Tejada, readily acknowledging that the material for Parabolasʼ successor The Predicting Machine was composed with Kompakt in mind: “This felt like it had a direct purpose. I think that freed me a bit creatively”. From the bleepy opener “Orbiter” to the jacking main single “Stabilizer”, the shuffling “An Ounce Of Perception” or the trademark bounce of tracks like “Horizon To Horizon” and “A Familiar Mood”, this album covers a lot of ground before closing its run with the soothing “When All Around Is Madness”, a cut that perfectly summarizes Tejadaʼs deeply focussed approach to making music. “The technical process was more involved than Parabolas”, explains the producer: “I dug deeper on the modular side trying out many new things, which inspired a lot of the songs”. While thatʼs exactly how we like to imagine the master at work, hunched over a plethora of scientific sounding modules, meticulously planning out the waveform of some random click, this doesnʼt do justice to Tejadaʼs finely tuned melodic sensibilities denouncing a repeat offender when it comes to pure musicality and unadulterated emotion. Every single one of Tejadaʼs sounds sees its own personal evolution, being send on a tracklong journey through wondrous landscapes, worlds that are “alien” in the most human way possible, inviting you to stay and lionize the marvels on display. John Tejada truly is an architect of epic story arcs, and he builds them on the smallest of surfaces, finding grandness in every detail.
