G Jones revives an old classic, with 'Drift (Acid Mix)' – Dancing Astronaut
Audacious experimentalist, G Jones has taken an acid-fueled stroll down memory lane. His newest release appears in the form of a rendition of “Drift,” first featured on the bass connoisseur’s debut EP way back in 2012, before getting the VIP treatment just a year later.
As gripping as it is frenetic, “Drift (Acid Mix)” emboldens Jones to flex the production wizardry that he’s known for, having been donned “the most gifted Ableton beatmaker” ever seen by none other than DJ Shadow himself. With the cut’s heavy infusion of acid synth work, the latest release takes on an audible flavor a bit unlike Jones’ typical work, while still possessing many of the Cali-based producer’s signature elements, from his hyper-attentive drumlines to the flipbook of melodic climaxes that his work is commonly lauded for. Organized chaos at its finest, the newest take on “Drift” never loses focus among the clutter of such a high-paced production.
“Drift (Acid Mix)” comes ahead of G Jones’ recently announced Tangential Zones, the respective epilogue to 2018’s widely embraced The Ineffable Truth.
