this album is one of those, that should be repressed regularly... but as the label seems inactive for quite some time, isn't there anyone willing to make few hundreds of new listeners happy? :) maybe, one day...

After some thousandth relisten of this album I paid attention to some bizarre (or not) details. On the first listen I heard something very familiar, something that all creative people love. No. You'll never guess what it is.
Actually "Loop-finding-jazz-records" isn't only clicks'n'cut best record, it's an anthem to Mac OS 9, to classic/classics. The abundance of Mac OS 9's "Platinum Sounds" easily proves the thesis.
The exact method was taken by Atom Heart for one of his earlier 90s record where he sampled Mac OS 7's startup bell.
No, no, no. Mac users aren't a sect. But Jelinek is one of us. He eternalized Mac OS 9' default sounds.

This is the futuristic music! Even if someone can't find jazz in this album then think twice. First of all it's warm electronics, very calm. I remember when we were trying to find the exact answers as releases to micro house and click house, we agreed on the very first example for micro house. Besides the track 'tendency', there is no actual bass and hi hats you hear like you're listening to a house track. It's very beautiful and calm for your lounges and futuristic for your granny days and suitable for opening your minimal house or minimal techno sets!

Warm, glitchy, beautiful: Jan Jelinek's LOOP-FINDING-JAZZ-RECORDS helps him secure a place in the upper eschelons of electronic music. Using quiet and subtle elements, he weaves together textures and melodies that linger in the air like butterflies. "Moire (Piano and Organ)" sets the tone for the album, one of peace and near-metronomic clicky rhythms. "They, Them" and its companion piece "Them, THeir" has some extended synth leads that whirl about like a kaleidoscope, changing patterns and colors. "Tendency" drifts along a semi-solid beat and a crystalline melody. "Moire (Strings)" is more ambient, more abstract, while the final track, "Drift," does exactly that. Another stunning album from the man who melds emotion with machines.

Specific ideas require specific labels. JAN JELINEK releases a new album on the STEFAN BETKE/POLE-label ~scape and we welcome a new concept: 'loop-finding-jazz-records'.
JAN JELINEK? You know, the production link no 1 between SND and BLAZE, the human sound poetry generator any computer, be it Amiga or the Mac Cube, would be honoured to work with. Since 98 four eps have appeared on Klang Elektronik (as FARBEN) while Source Records released a GRAMM album. As introduced by his contribution to the 'staedtizism' sampler and the JAN JELINEK-ep on ~scape, 'loop-finding-jazz-records' explores all possible variants of the unique JELINEK/~scape production concept. With the aid of his sampler JELINEK has developed an exclusive music discovery approach, building on three central themes: jazz, the loop finding modulation wheel and Moiré. Jazz sequences from the 60s and 70s are cut up into second-long loops, shifted by the wheel of the sampler and combined into spacial arrangements with maximum depth of field, re-creating the notorious Moiré-effect, this ground-breaking painting technique of creating three dimensional space in a plane without the classic tools of perspective. When Vasarély slightly tilted a few lines in a square grid it seems to flicker three-dimensionally. Similarily, when JELINEK uses his modulation wheel to twist linear loops, sounds dance into zero gravity. It's just a little twist for JELINEK's index finger and a large step for the grammar of crackle poetry. Should anyone enquire after the lyrical scope of clicks and cuts and glitches, 'loop-finding-jazz-records' will overwhelm them like Jerichos trumpets. The more gentle, the more insistent. And the initial concept will be forgotten amongst excited listening surprise.
