Jay Tripwire – My Life With The Machines Vol 1 [Repeat]
The fifth instalment in Repeat‘s catalogue reveals a heavy collection of west coast house classics and unreleased tracks produced by Jay Tripwire in the early ’00s. Titled “My Life With The Machines”, the first volume of this series will arrive soon in a 2×12″ vinyl-only pack, providing an exquisite choice of underground grooves that were played over the years by artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Raresh and Margaret Dygas, to name only a few.
A well-known figure in the international electronic music scene for more than 20 years now, Canadian DJ and producer Jay Tripwire pioneered the fusion of house and techno in a more minimal stripped-down fashion, encompassing a very wide range of underground music. With hundreds of vinyl or digital releases and four full-length albums under his belt (including materials released under his 8 Channels or Mr. Barcode aliases), he remains one of the most prolific artists around, with an average of 15 releases per year. From Detroit-inspired textures or dub soundscapes to modern European house, microhouse and tech house fusions, he loves to blur the line between genres, continuously exploring music and its limitless possibilities.
The collection of tracks from the first record of “My Life With The Machines” include old-school and uptempo acidic house rhythms, while the second record is focused on deeper vibes and dub-infused compositions. It’s more than likely that you should recognise some of those edits as they were played here and there by Jay in his sets across over 200 cities worldwide. The material adds even more magic to the artist’s extended discography as well as to the label’s amazing catalogue. A must-have for vinyl collectors and selectors right here, no doubt!
