JakoJako - Verve

by Tom Ojendyk

After releasing her own debut album and a double album collaboration with Rødhåd last year, Berlin-based modular synthesist JakoJako, aka Sibel Koçer, is back with a four-song EP of deep techno blasts on the legendary Mute Records. The record starts with “Impetus,” using strong kick patterns pushing out a dance-friendly rhythm while synths float above, creating a hard-hitting yet dazed electronic track. It’s followed by “Opak” which uses majestic and almost angelic overtones that swish around an evolving beat and works as a nice counterbalance to the opening track. “Auris” brings back the strong beat for a fine slice of trance-inducing techno and JakoJako closes it out on a high note with “Nexus,” which might be the most involved and dreamiest track on the release. Verve is hopefully a sign of more great things to come from this very talented artist.
