"Wave Talk", is a fusion of worlds and technologies in album form. The New York subway bounces off tractor sounds from farmlands, YouTube samples on breakbeats, fast-paced Berlin noise on Pacific waves and winds – fabricated by a Roland MS 20.
JBXDR curates an individual setup for every track: composed of hundreds of different samples and rhythms, which pave the way for his improvisation between jazz, techno, and hiphop. Through this technique he demonstrates wonderfully warm sound collages (Wave Talk, Surfing a Wave of Populism) on mechanical funk as well as floaty groovy beats (Accelerate Everything), which are always organically arranged during live shows.
For JBXDR, being a solo drummer means constantly expanding tonal boundaries and connecting musical traditions with the mainstream.
