Premiere: Mørkeblå – The Coldness Of A Jack-in (1991 Remix)

Mørkeblå’s Nowhere, OK caught our attention with some vigour earlier this year. A stirring release on the excellent Where To Now? label – it was confounding, nightmarish and chilling. The Italian producer’s latest effort is a full-length cassette release for Reckno called Pisces Sun, Capricorn Rising. It expands on his bizarrely affective approach to droning soundscapes, venturing into dance floor territories and imbuing the whole release with a sense of dread by way of carefully chosen vocal samples from the likes of True Detective. Ahead of its release we’ve been given the opportunity to share a remix from the release by Swedish producer 1991, whose work has featured on Astro:Dynamics and Opal Tapes. “The Coldness Of A Jack-in” is an intense, lengthy techno workout where synth lines shift from minor to major and kick patterns develop and mutate with total disregard for regular structure. 1991’s take focuses on the minor chords, adding layers of grain and sludge and slicing riffs apart before phasing in some thick but understated percussion. It’s narcotic and melancholic in equal measure, and we’re delighted to share it with you.
