Holy Prophet Elijah is a unique blend of Avant Garde sensibilities mixed with just enough elements of pop to attract the average listener. It’s all incredibly bizarre, but so intrinsically captivating for the very same reason.
Classic dance music in the depth of the night is the blanket under which this kind of release naturally settles. As always, there are flickers of inspiration from across the globe, not least of all shown through the vocal fragments that are in Zulu – these are actually the names of spices, a quirky nod to the track’s title and underlying concept.
Producer Jamit pays tribute to the late King Stitt on this track Taeb Ecnad (Dance Beat in reverse). Historical context aside though, this is one of his most enjoyable releases to date.
There’s a hypnotic quality to this extended musical journey that overtakes any need for structure or change. There’s a sense of growth, sure – the layers intensify just slightly, but you start to question whether that’s actually happening or whether it’s simply your mind making it appear that way.
At it’s core, this is down-tempo EDM – suited to those later than late nights when you’re not sure what kind of music you need but you absolutely can’t stand the thought of silence.
Partly organic, partly fresh from the depths of electronic mayhem. There’s drama & tension, presented in a powerful way. It’s a journey well worth experiencing at volume, and a concept we all need to consider a little more attentively.
The piece starts off with beauty & softness, which soon descends into a heavy pit of movement – an industrial throbbing – then these tribal flickers of noise & consistent energy fill up the outer layers. You can visualize this conveyor belt of processes – the systems being the thing that’s valued, not the people who operate them.
It lays out the perfect balance between calm & manic – hyped but fully in control, or rather, willingly lost in the rhythm of the audio; just as it is when you find yourself unable to stop dancing.
Reintroducing fans to the much-loved blend of techno rhythms, driving synths & infectious beats, while provoking a certain set of ideas to ponder as the music pours through.
Jamit’s return this month brings a totally provocative piece of music that feels like a classically retro journey into his creative mind
These very earthly sounds are in stark contrast with the cosmic sounding synth, but it all somehow works together in the most interesting way.
