why we love this

Much like a scientist in the lab, Jan Jelinek breaks up the molecules of jazz tracks and meticulously rearranges them into new original pieces beyond recognition. This is sampling at its finest.

about the record

Jan Jelinek's Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records was originally released in 2001 on ~scape, existing only as a download.

The title is derived from Jelinek's production approach on the album. Its tracks are built around second-long samples sourced from 1960s and 1970s jazz records and manipulated beyond recognition. He produced much of the album using an Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler.

What the press said about Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records:

“Don’t be misled by the title, though for there isn’t a finger-snapping rhythm c bebop lead anywhere on the album. Instead, Jelinek chooses to explore the visual effect moiré - two shifting patterns creating an implied third dimension - in the audio realm.” (Alternative Press)

“The title acts as explanation for the studio technique that provided the basis for this album, snippets of other people’s arrangements deconstructed through a sampler into loops and then splashed onto an audio canvas.” (ATM)

“Jelinek has abstracted his sources beyond recognition, looping his millisecond samples into flickering patterns of sonic moiré laid atop a dub Techno framework. (...) Jelinek might as well have sampled a horn player’s hissing intake of breath – it would have been ‘jazz’ enough for his purposes.” (The Wire)
