Regardless if you immediately associate the term metamorphosis with any kind of evolutionary adjustment, with shapeshifting, the complex transformation of music or if you simply think about the distinctive mark the last two years have left on basically each and everyone of us, it’s easy to agree that “Metamorphose“ is just the perfect title for JakoJako’s debut album for Bigamo.
JakoJako has made perfect use of the compulsory extra studio time regulated by the pandemic, developing and specifying a sound she instantly attracted attention with, as soon as she entered the scene in 2019 with her release on Leisure System.
“Metamorphose“ is one of those albums that can easily quiet a bustling room in an instant, regardless if you’re a connoisseur of this kind of music or not. It’s a compelling and highly absorbing collection of tracks, a surprisingly immersive experience designed for nocturnal listening (and beyond) that is difficult to not lose yourself within. Still the nine tracks on display feel almost like a paradox: they are fundamentally propulsive, yet they seem to decelerate time and space, they generate tension yet offer a weirdly soothing effect, they feel high-brow and imply endless intellectual stimuli yet they are deeply felt and simply want to provide simple truths about ourselves.
The most haunting aspect though might even be that it sounds utterly complete, even though the musical journey of this Berlin-based musician, producer and all-around gear-head has just begun.
