  • Catalog SPN019
  • Description In his first outing on Audioflys Supernature imprint, Toronto export James Teej deliversfurther insight into the depths of his murky, off-kilter world. A full-bodied feast ofsounds, the Elements Of Desire EP, featuring a killer remix from Shaun Reeves & LeeCurtiss, is one for those who like their grooves with a twist in their tail.A-side Too Much is Teej at his rolling hypnotic, mind- bending best. Clocking in at anepic 13 minutes, its a compelling builder of distorted low-end, sleazy synths andswirling intergalactic lasers. While the mood is dark, its definitely playtime in the studiofor Teej as he weaves a complex web of sonic layers that suck you in for the duration.Daytime Ringer is a spiraling sci-fi odyssey overlaid with pulsating trippy tech. Kickingoff with a monster bassline and a gradual filter of drums, Teej takes you on a sprawlingjourney through space with a synth-line that gets spliced at the mid-way point with anunrelenting dose of wonky warehouse bleeps. Taken on by one half of the Visionquestline-up, Shaun Reeves & Lee Curtiss turn Daytime Ringer into a nimble affair withplenty of swing and more bump in the bassline while cutting up the synth melody tomake it their own.Another typical journey into the deeper recesses of house and techno, finalinstallment Red Light Shine is a chugging soundscape of moody synth stabsenveloped in warped ambience. Featuring the distinctive raspy tones of Teej himself,give it to you like that is indication enough of the muddy waters ahead.James Teej is one of Canadas rising stars in the global underground music scene. Witha career spanning over 15 years, James is a die-hard music enthusiast for all thingselectronic and has been unleashing his innovative sound on an array of boundarypushing labels (Rekids, My Favourite Robot Records, Rebirth, No.19 Music andGalaktika) since 2008, as well as notching up many high-profile remixes for artists suchas Trentemoller, Toby Tobias and Kenny Glasgow. His debut LP Evening Harvest wasfilled with idiosyncratic, darkly melodic material and the inventive producer continuesto fly the flag for Toronto with increasing versatility and bite.soundcloud.com/jamesteej
