Follow-up to Dark Energy "veers very far left of footwork"

Jlin’s second album, the follow up to tQ’s 2015 album of the year Dark Energy, will veer “very far left of footwork”, according to an interview with the Line Noise podcast which you can listen to above.

The producer revealed that the new album is anticipated to be released in March 2017 and will be called either Black Origami: The Motherboard - “which is the one I’ll probably go with” - or Black Origami: The Dark Lotus.

“I have to say, don’t consider myself a footwork artist,” she said in the interview. “And I think it’s really going to start coming out, especially when this second album comes out. I played some of the tracks last night that are going to be on that album and it veers very far left of footwork. Even with Dark Energy: Dark Energy has elements of footwork in it. But I wouldn’t consider it a footwork album.”

During the half-hour interview, alongside Fractal Fantasy producer Zora Jones, Jlin also talked about her live set up, how she started producing footwork, the influence of DJ Rashad and how “Black Diamond”, from Dark Energy, is incomplete. “It’s mastered but it was incomplete because I thought I lost the file,” she said.

Last month Jlin posted a new track to her Soundcloud, Untitled 2016. It was the first new music from the producer since the Free Fall EP in December.

“It has both triplets and four to the floor in there, all mixed together,” she said of the track. “That track’s not even done. It’s a minute 44. It’s not mastered. I did it because I got tired of looking at the same tracks on my Soundcloud page. I literally remember hitting ‘Save As’ on my computer, saving the project, and I said, ‘You know what? I’m just going to randomly throw it on SoundCloud.’”
