Jacoti Sommes: Travel Time tape

Somehow managing to be funk, ambient, and IDM at the same time, Jacoti Sommes’ first Orange Milk tape is smooth and relaxed but filled with complex, imaginative rhythms. “Subblue” encapsulates this fusion of brainy electro-funk with soothing pads washing through it all. “Pulse Start” is a more straightforward crowd-mover, then “Push On” is where you realize this is actually a journey through the cosmos. This is one classy rocket ship though, and even while we’re shooting through the galaxy, there’s such a laid back party atmosphere that nothing feels out of the ordinary, it feels just like celebrating at a friend’s house. “Everything Is Fine” ups the good-time factor with some disco strings and pianos, and “I Got Your Back” is just a friendly and reassuring as it sounds. Really positive, uplifting, and just naturally different.
