Originally released in 2001 as the seventh release on Stefan Betke’s iconic and now sadly defunct imprint ~scape, Jan Jelinek’s ‘Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records’ is without a doubt a pivotal album in the realms of experimental electronic music and has acquired an almost mythical status. Now this masterstroke of an album has been re-release via Jan Jelinek’s own imprint Faitiche.

Lifted from our interview with Jan Jelinek in 2017, the producer shared "The title already explains part of the concept: I focused my sample sources on jazz records because I was wondering if it’s possible to extract a significant sound, which stands for this genre.

Jazz music is mostly described with parameters ( -> virtuosity) which have nothing do with sound ideas. Practically I reduced the arrangements mostly to a function of the ASR sample machine: moving the loop-position with external controllers. Not all loops were synchronised, which caused an ‘acoustical glimmer’, that explains some of the titles (Moiré).

Even though the album title still refers to a certain music source, I never intended to do a Jazz influenced record. But it was just too tempting to observe how the reception will work with this title.

So the whole recording was mostly based on one item, the ASR10 sampler. I produced the album while I was still studying, mostly at night in my one-room flat in Berlin. An Atari computer was used as a rough sequencer, all equing and final layer arrangements were recorded live on a DAT. I actually still should have different versions of each LFJR-track somewhere on a DAT…"
