BiographyAlong with associate Manchester electronic musicians like Autechre and SKAM labelmates Gescom and VVM, Dylan Nathan's Jega is an incredibly complicated structure of sharp, angular rhythms that precariously support teetering Synth Pop keyboard lines. He creates the jittery seizures of Drum 'n' Bass with cool Electro beats, and the staccato attack of his rhythms are the 303 equivalent of a machine gun emptying its clip into the air after being dropped on its buttstock. While these blips and bleeps fire off with alarming irregularity, Nathan coats them in both charming coolness and humorous awkwardness. The mathematics engineering of his music betrays his training as an musical architect -- he builds a near-prison for Techno. But Jega is no Panopticon, for there is no discernable center or perspective. All sight lines are obfuscated.
