Third full length album for Jvox, who presents here his own personal combination of flowing electronica, warm sounds and
downbeat. Precise but warm, and always groove-ridden, "QED"
injects a impressive dose of humanity and audio craftsmanship in
his IDM sensibilities.
For his third CD (and first on Ad Noiseam), New York City-based
Joel Tallent (a.k.a. Jvox) presents with "QED" an album in which
his abstract beats get combined as never before with thick bass
and a resolute sense for warm compositions.
Starting out as an MC in the late eighties, Joel Tallent moved
to more electronic territories in the early nineties, then
focusing on hi-fi electronica. After two very well received
albums (for Unit and Component Records), a 7" on N5md and
compilation appearances on Merck and N5md, Jvox comes back with
"QED", a new full length album on which his taste for emotional,
contemplative sounds get enriched with the influence of his
taste for hip-hop, jazz and a somewhat more down-to-earth, human
feeling. Such tracks as the opener title one or "Sweetbaby"
provide a fresh, bass heavy counterpart to the bleaker and
introspective "Cold Squeeze", or "I Wonder". Moreover, Jvox has
also enriched his sound on "QED" with a lot of work on voices,
may it be sliced into snippets or laid on the forefront of
mysterious soundscapes (ôAccidentsö).
Also active in the field of visual design and animation and the author of several cartoons, Jvox signs the unsettling video for the track "Hog" to be found on the CD.
"QED" shows a multi-talented artist reaching new highs in his craft and moving seamlessly through sounds, structures and genres: Quod Erat Demonstrandum.
