Genre/Influences: IDM, experimental, cinematographic.
Background/Info: Jash Teua is a Russian solo-project driven by Zalim Bekulov. He self-released this debut-EP in 2018 while Aliens Production re-released it last year. A debut album entitled “Amentia” has also been released.
Content: This work features 5 songs, leading the listener into a world of reverie, which is rapidly joined by subtle and intelligent sound treatments. The songs are mainly driven by a slow rhythm while electro-space like atmospheres accentuates the dreamy feeling. There’s a harmony between the influences, which are mainly into cinematographic music and IDM.
+ + + : This is the kind of project you might expect from Aliens Production. A work without real compromises, but into a total artistic freedom although related with IDM and soundtrack music. It has something of an accessible experiment. “My” is a fine exposure of this artist’s sound vision.
– – – : This kind of project remains complex and mainly meant to conquer a restricted number of listeners.
Conclusion: “Alarm” could be the right soundtrack for an imaginary surreal movie.
Best songs: “My”, “Black Mirror”.
