G Jones gives streamers an introduction to the sound that will characterize the “epilogue” to 2018’s The Ineffable Truth, which the producer has titled, Tangential Zones. The experimental bass maven first caught fans’ attention with his Twitter declaration that the follow-up EP was well on its way; now, he holds it with the debut single from Tangential Zones, “Dark Artifact.”
Reverberating bass lines blare abundantly on the chaotic offering. The beat skitters as its arrangement dynamically shifts, creating constructive plot twists that pepper the near-three-minute number. Streamers recognize as the arresting ID that Nocturnal Wonderland attendees lusted after following G Jones’ live set. Newly available in its full-length form, and with the low end reliably amplified in all of its window-rattling glory, “Dark Artifact” provides a potent prelude to what awaits on Tangential Zones.
