Mrs Jynx: Atlanta EP (Complex Sound Sagacity : 2012)

Mrs Jynx, aka Hannah Davidson, is a consistent producer of lush, melodic electronica and has had her music released through Mike Paradinas' highly respected label, Planet Mu, including albums ‘The Standoffish Cat’ and ‘Shark Carousel’. Having played at a few Tronic events in the past, including a night on the same bill as fellow Planet Mu artist, Frog Pocket, Mrs Jynx has really become a firm favourite with those at Tronic.

Her latest six-track release, the 'Atlanta EP’, through Complex Sound Sagacity, continues the excellent form from her previous work with crystal clear production quality, crisp beats, and her trademark hypnotic melodies. The use of vocals and sampling on tracks such as ‘Something Which Was Everything’ and the excellent ‘CWishes’, which features vocalist IAm9, provide a nice additional element to the mix and they combine well with the flowing, floating, synth sounds.

‘Bedtime Stories’ has playful, warm synth lines, reminiscent of one of the finest ambient era artists Aphex, and others such as Bochum Welt, and Kettel. While the energetic, sublime sounds of ‘Kiss Behind The Ear’ bring to mind the soundscapes of Ulrich Schnauss. There is also a remix of this track by Oxynucid, included on the EP.

Each track, however, retains a distinctive, identifiable Mrs Jynx style. During track 'Economy Pelican' that rich sound then combines with cut up hip-hop sampling rhythms to great use showing the progressive side of this talented artist.

This EP is an impressive addition to a catalogue of great work by Mrs Jynx and well worth taking a listen.
