"The third and final EP of Ben Winans Jacktone trilogy features this tough, surging and swampy techno cut, with a beautiful synth passage that's worth waiting for." Resident Advisor
SF-based Roche is back on Jacktone with "Integral Synthesia Sessions", a series of 3 releases coming out throughout April and early May. Each release contains 2 tracks, with the artist exploring a range of emotion and sonic content, upbeat salutes to his hip-hop past, patient and meditative sound worlds, and intense and anthemic waves of bass and percussion. Each track carries its own unique spin on dance music.
“Integral Synthesia Sessions” was recorded over the past decade at Roche’s home studio in San Francisco, and is a collection of meticulously-carved singular experiences of sound. Together, the series creates a hallucinatory narrative, as well as a personal soundtrack to the moments that make up one's life that remind us of our connection to the rest of the world.
Roche previously released on Jacktone in 2015 with the AXT 12", and has also released on 100% Silk, Mathematics, Perfect Location Recordings, Hobo Camp and most recently a 12" with the newly formed, Vinyl Dreams Records.
