Johnny Jitters 'Closure'

Glitch has taken on its own lifeform—displaying slivers of exp-electronics, classical, bass, ambience and digital-to-analog manipulation just as time and creativity shifts the genre into new and interesting paths. Johnny Jitters and fellow cohorts take Closure into these skewed directions—offering downtempo frequencies bridged across atmospheric rapids that are warm, sincere and heartfelt.

The title tracks breaks the ice with subdued layers of dust settling on pops and crackles as they swirl around delicate beat patches and classical instrumentation. Coppice Halifax produces a stripped-back facade on his “Dissipation” remix; a lava flow of thumping beats veers in the background as sheets of smoldering fluctuations take center stage in a thick fog. Phylum Sinter’s “Quicksand” remix administers darker and more direct electronic trickery; laying out a post-industrial haze of video-game contours as it injects distorted basslines and an overall fuzziness that stays its course. Thruoutin’s edit opens with a swarm of analog synths and breaks apart midway to deliver an Eastern-influenced pulse of melodic strings and subtle vocal treatments. Christmas Lights delves into shoegaze terrain—the production resembling the strengths of Yo La Tengo and/or Solvent at moments. Nonimx’s closure sees this remix single dipping further into an abyss of Hermann & Kleine inspired percussive beauty. Perhaps the finest of the lot, Nonimx’s extrapolation rips the entire package to shreds in a chaotically serene way. So as these glitch-laden manifests continue to grow tentacles that are challenging to describe, Closure presents a solid collection of leftfield ventures that form a hearty soup of instrumental ambient-shoegaze.
