One of the Windy City’s most promising sons, Chicago Jim, has revealed his new self-titled album, the first full-length release on new London label Lobster Theremin.
Across 11 tracks – all untitled, they are only identifiable by their placement on the vinyl – the Chicago Jim LP showcases the producers genre-spanning talent, drawing heavily upon the sounds of his home city – a hotbed of musical inventiveness. “Perhaps this is an over-romanticized notion, but I’m also really into the idea of people from all walks of life coming together under one roof to lose their minds together on the dance floor” says Chicago Jim. “If you aren’t down with that you aren’t a real head.”
The album was crafted with a host of enticing hardware, including a Roland 808, MPC 2000 and a microkorg, and was actually originally released through a local tape imprint Pretty Alright.
Lobster Theremin will release the Chicago Jim LP on October 30th, stream a preview below:
