JUMO – ‘QUE DES GENS DE PASSAGE’ EP
RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW
Four years ago, French electronic artist Clément Leveau discovered free rein over his passion for music and imagery through his musical avatar, Jumo. With a wide range of musical influences including Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Atoms For Peace, Steve Reich, Boards Of Canada and Romare, Jumo is characterized by sophisticated production, heady melodies and a cinematic atmosphere. Continuing to unfold the thread of his musical narrative with a series of EPs, Jumo now releases the ‘Que des gens de passage’ EP.
Exploring new horizons with a more danceable, instinctive and emotional feel, ‘Que des gens de passage’ is inspired by the lives of the unknown and the brief moments shared with strangers. Created during a trip to Norway, where despite constant daylight, the streets remained empty, the EP is a reflection of this residential ghost town.
Perfectly combining his sleek and progressive sound with a club-oriented feel, the three track EP showcases Jumo’s modern and avant-garde edge with an acute attention to detail. ‘Carré’ takes inspiration from psychedelic and indie rock influences, featuring heavy, fast-paced drums along with an entrancing synth melody. Taking a slightly softer approach, ‘Motel’ keeps the cosmic sound whilst bringing in frenetic energy and club-feeling. Rounding off the EP, ‘Parfois’ features a gentle synth melody, with a big rolling kick, creating a hypnotic and dreamlike feel.
