MOVEMENT - Jake Amy






Movement is an instrumental joint which pays homage to the pioneers of electro, and is heavily inspired by the rise of jazz/house music in the Melbourne scene. ** I'M SO EXCITED TO RELEASE NEW MUSIC! Especially this track - we recorded it in my tiny bedroom mid summer while it was reallllllly toasting... bass, drums and keys. Unfortunately I don't have air con in my house. After the jam session, I felt so inspired that I immediately started producing the track, grabbing percussion samples from previous sessions with Lucky Pereira. Inspired by some of my favourite artists at the time (Horatio Luna / Z.F.E.X. / Tiana Khasi / Allysha Joy and Barney McAll), I locked myself in my room with an OB6 synthesizer and recorded overdubs in about 30 minutes. I actually really struggled to put this song out as my previous work is totally different. I wondered how it would fit in and debated about whether or not I considered it "revolutionary" as part of my overall artistry and musical journey. All music I have released has historically explored particular advanced compositional concepts. I felt that this song didn't contain anything exceptionally different to music I had listened to and been inspired by, but perhaps its familiarity was why I was drawn to listening to it and why I LOVED the production process so much. I would say that this track is about the lack of freedom and focus to THINK. At times I have become so busy that I live my life just going from one thing to the next. In those times I find myself thinking about not much at all... music for sure, but other things? What other things? HOPE YOU DIG IT! And if you do, please come to a show: Melbourne - Fri 29 July 2022, 9:30pm at Colour Club Sydney - Sun 31 July 2022, 7pm at Bar Oppil
