jan jelinek faitiche

At around 20 minutes in all this is more an EP than a full album but Jan Jelinek's latest recording project is a sampadelic masterpiece as well as a chef d'oeuvre in the art of plunderphonics. Although I like it less than his previous releases (notably: Kosmischer Pitch & La Nouvelle Pauvreté on ~Scape ) this audio collage is a real pleasure to listen to and a recording that I'll be coming back to more than on the odd occasion. My only complaint being that it's too short but one can imagine the tremendous amount of work involved in putting together this superb item. Packaging is also first class: fold-out card sleeve with heavy-duty 8 page, illustrated paper booklet affixed inside with text in English & German. Recommended. one2zero.
Jan Jelinek on the release:
is no official entity, but rather a rough idea, an association without membership or manifestation committed to one primary and pragmatic notion: financial backing and legal support in case of active breaches of copyright – the process of sampling.©jan jelinek - (more)
