J E G A (from the "Displayed" interview series)

Jega is just one man, Dylan Nathan, an architecture-school classmate of Richard James (Aphex Twin) and Mike Paradinas (µ-ZIQ). He shares with them many of the same musical concerns, but didnt get around to releasing his work commercially as quickly as they did. He released his first EP in 1996 on Skam (original home to Boards of Canada), and in 1998 released Spectrum on Paradinass Planet µ label (and, later, Matador).

Spectrum was a jarring view across the landscape of electronic music, more rollercoaster than Sunday drive, resulting in the cloying label drill n bass. In contrast, Geometry flows smoothly and more melodically from vista to vista, merging staccato 808 rhythmic workouts, digital swing, analog atmospherics, jittery electro-hop, and myriad other sounds into a dark and rather melancholy work.

Unlike Spectrum, Geometry will be released simultaneously worldwide, and Jega will be making numerous visits to the US for live appearances throughout the year. Dylan is also a licensed pilot, BMX fanatic, computer hacker, and a professional animator, currently working on a computer-animated video for the title track.

About "Displayed"

The artists in Displayed talk about their starts in the 90ies, some of them started just a few years ago. Their days and nights, jobs, lifes and thoughts, lonesome working in front of a computerscreen, composing, essences of a growing music culture. Its not about borders in a global dancefloor culture. These artists are talking about a self-full-filling progression (not only) in Electronic Art and this is what DISPLAYED is about. Listen.
