Dream House Tropicana Volume 3 compilation 12″ – Blind Jack’s Journey

blndtrop3Blind Jack’s Journey has been a extensively multifaceted outlet, a sublabel that’s spawned sub-sublabels, their balmy sounds capturing our imaginations as well as serving as a springboard for talents like Gnork and Acasual. Their latest venture is the Dream House Tropicana series, which seems to dig back into the varieties of sound that started Blind Jack’s Journey in 2012.

This third installment in the series of compilation 12″s features RNR, Deep88, and collaborative ventures between RNR & Luv Jam, and Gnork & Luv Jam. A remarkably prolific and underrated UK-based artist, Luv Jam’s contributions stand out here even amongst the quartet of excellent selections. This record doesn’t land far from last week’s K-rAd & Opcode 66 collaboration; a warm atmosphere and gently introverted melodies tie this collection together. Meanwhile, there remain a variety of rhythmic approaches: Room Of Soul is slow grind house, Talk To Me is UK artificial intelligence techno, Acid Casio is dry acid techno under the silky chords, and Zipppp is breakbeat house, a Gnork signature.
