Welcome to the wonderful world of JOBE, a dynamic and driven deep house / techno artist with a firm grasp on mood and motion. This latest EP, Orcus, showcases JOBE’s deft hand at effortlessly manipulating energy and emotion while leading the listener ever onward. Ultimately the boundary-pushing three-piece EP is an intoxicating glimpse of an unreachable and engaging dimension.
The EP introduces itself with certainty and drive from track one, “Orcus”, which reverberates off of both futuristic and barbaric basslines and floats with eerie energy. The curious track slowly but surely swells into being as the pace quickens into an energetic crescendo and extends further into an intriguing dream world.
Track two, “Dissolusion” turns the EP in a slightly different direction; a sultry and succinct statement of being, realized through concise melodies and rebellious undertones. The song feels like an all at once fluid and unyielding version of human existence; a poetic state of both bliss and angst.
The EP then delves from “Dissolusion” into “Dystopia”, a decidedly darker and more driving definition of the material world. The song eases from an aura of lightness and intrigue into a vacuum of mystery and worldly decay. From start to finish, there is an undeniable fascination in the fabric of this created universe. We will eagerly await the next chapter in the growing repertoire of JOBE.
