Better known as part of Russian production crew Despot, emerging artist Jalex debuts on Eternia with some seriously experimental music. Although both tracks would easily be at home on a label like Non:Plus, this is no case of mere imitation, but sonic inspiration and abandon.
A side "Assembler" opens with a sequence of bleeps that are soon joined by the barest of beats and a simple synth melody. Said melody slowly expands to become almost eerie, although this spacious piece is more intriguing than it is intimidating.
Kicking off with a clicky beat and swirling synths, "Consortium" has a surprise in store: an electro sounding sawtoothy synth that is impossible to ignore.
