MalLabel Music is starting 2013 off right with its’ first release of the year from its newest resident, G Jones. Greg Jones has been hard at work this past year, his newest release, Transmissions showcases a broad range of styles from the young producer, from hard hitting midtempo to melodically hype 808 bangers.
The EP opens with the anthemIc track ‘Overnight’. Lush melodic leads and piano chords float over a twitchy purple bassline, which gives way to a minimal, trap influenced beat, outlined by shimmering arpeggios. The title track, ‘Transmissions’, follows with vibrating melodies and reggae stabs bouncing atop a heavily swung beat. While ‘The Heart Cave takes the EP in an entirely new direction, with soft bell melodies echoing over thick pur ple bass lines and saturated electronic chord progressions. The EP finishes with The Widdler’s old school dubstep rework of Transmissions, which decontextualizes the melodies and chord progression of the title track over a pounding 142 BPM drumbeat.
This release showcases G Jones’ wide range of musical styles, while staying melodically complex and firmly rooted to the dance floor. ‘Transmissions’ epitomizes the freshest sounds coming out of the west coast and is not to be missed by fans of the bass music culture.
