Jay Lumen – The Line EP
The name Jay Lumen has been on the tip of every techno tastemaker’s tongue. The Budapest producer has been experiencing nothing short of a prolific run over the past few months. From his dark and dramatic You Know EP on Octopus Records, to his Departures EP on 100% Pure, Lumen’s output has not only been consistent but of immaculate quality.
His newest work finds him on Noir Music with a two track offering of original material. Title track “The Line” brings wonky techno flair with enough panache to find itself in either a Nicole Moudaber or Olivier Giacomotto set. B-side “Sunbeam” puts the emphasis on atmosphere and brings a lighter, more groove-centric affair that you might find in the arsenal of someone like Solomun or Luciano.
