Fact Magazine has been doing quite an interesting feature series where they take a producer, and see what magic they can procure in a short amount of time. In this edition of Against the Clock, they enter the domain of Mathew Jonson (Cocoon, Minus, Crosstown Rebels) to see what he cooks up.
The result? A 10 minute cerebral journey that makes us feel as if we’re now entering the gravitational pull of a far away techno planet. If you know of such a planet actually existing, speak now or forever hold your peace.
It’s a fantastic concept that tests the artist’s creativity. Jonson utilizes the many synths at his disposal to create lush pads, distant bleeping bells, and squeaky drums that add just enough weirdness to the mix. You can see Mathew Jonson’s full 10 minute jam against the clock in the video below.
