Thomas Jack – “No Landing”
After a five-year-hiatus leading to a transformation in sound, Australia’s Thomas Jack made a return a couple of months ago. His first release “Sandman” introduced his new style. Then came “Mae”. Now, the artist’s third offering, “No Landing”, is out — and it’s so mesmerizing. Speaking about the track, Thomas Jacks says, “The Initial idea for ‘No Landing’ started with a grungy bassline made on an old vintage memorymoog. This baseline sparked my creative energy, and I started to build out the track with drums, and synths and continued expanding on that initial baseline. I arrived at a sound that seemed simple, but still sounded crisp and full-toned“.
