Thinking Too Much/Where The Helios is Juk Juk’s second release on Nommos. Thinking Too Much is the most direct Juk Juk release so far. It’s peak time fare, aimed squarely at the dancefloor. The dreamy intro will fool the unsuspecting, sucking them in and propelling them on a tripped out ride on a techno ghost train, buffered by a cushion of warm throbbing bass. Where The Helios is the real dream side. A floating, hallucinogenic, spaced out drift, driven by a crisp, pared back rhythm and a gorgeous, woozy vocal- led melody. Juk Juk’s first release for Nommos was Unwrap/Fall and before that his debut, Winter Turn Spring/Frozen, was put out by Kieran (Four Tet) Hebden on his highly regarded Text label. All Juk Juk’s output to date has been critically acclaimed, coverage including Fact Magazine, Pitchfork, Mix Mag, Abeano, the Fader amongst others. His releases have also received significant club and radio plays including mainstream Radio 1 support from admirers Giles Peterson and Rob Da Bank, who has promised support for this release. Four Tet said the room went off when playing Thinking Too Much at a recent event.
