London-born house producer jackLNDN has released his long-awaited LP Patterns on the 12th of August via his imprint Jack’s House. With each new single released, the producer’s name has grown in acclaim, earning him over 60 million plays across streaming platforms and attention and support from the tastemaker publications Billboard, Mixmag, CLASH Magazine, Mixmag Spain, Your EDM, Dancing Astronaut, Insomniac, Magnetic Magazine, This Song Is Sick, When We Deep, Deep House Amsterdam, Run The Trap, and Nakid as well as radio airplay from BBC’s 1Xtra Daytime, BBC Radio 1 with Pete Tong and Diplo & Friends. His music has also been featured on the popular Youtube channels Ultra Music, Mr Suicide Sheep, The Vibe Guide, House Nation, MrRevillz, and Selected.
Jack Aisher showed early talent, learning to play the piano and sing at age 7. Noticing his budding ability, one of the largest national choirs had him join them to perform for the Queen and her family in Windsor Castle. With a diverse range of influences such as James Blake, Earth Wind & Fire, and Frank Sinatra, Jack ventured into new audio territories, namely the electronic realm, where he released official remixes for well-known names like Emancipator, Lettuce, and The Polish Ambassador. Raised on music, his own sound exhibits elements of Ben Böhmer, Jan Blomqvist, and Yotto.
A deeply personal album, Patterns expresses a vast array of emotions: from personal struggle to foot-tapping delight. Jazzy chords set a skip and a jump to the beat, while an unrelenting bass rhythm insinuates a deeper, more meaningful undertone. Like most of the tracks in this project, ‘In My Mind (Patterns)’ shines a spotlight on vocals, adding a melodious edge to Jack’s production and setting him apart from the humdrum of traditional house musicians.
jackLNDN shares his thoughts on the album: “I wanted to accurately reflect my experiences over the last three years, meaning there’s a darker, more urgent energy driving this album. Emotions ranging from all out chaos, to pure joy, self-destruction, love, depression & hope. ‘Patterns’ takes you on a journey through the highs and lows of what has been a crazy time for us all. I’ve evolved as an instrumentalist which has informed the way I approach writing; recording more live piano, bass, organ, guitar, percussion & vocals on this album than ever before. It’s my homage to house music, returning to the roots of why I love this sound. Plenty of 808s, 909s, pitched chords, snare-rolls & general baseline grooviness. This is without doubt the most dancefloor driven record I’ve ever made.”
