There’s no style of electronic music that Jazzyspoon leaves untouched. In a lot of ways many of his listeners see him as an "eclectic conduit" to several different musical energies and that he has a unique way of translating it all into something malleable and tangible. Jazzyspoon’s widespread vision of music as an art form is what attracted In Space And Time Records to him in the first place. After three years in the making, and working as a direct follow-up to his self-released Circle When Finished (jazzyspoon.bandcamp.com/album/circle-when-finished
), along with a remix album on IDMf Netlabel (Circle When Remixed), (label.idmforums.com/releases-3/001-020/011-015/idmf015-jazzyspoon-circle-when-remixed
), comes his epic LP release, A Product Of My Environment.
This album features ten unique tracks of diverse electronic sounds, all fused into a smooth-flowing universe that orbits around Jazzyspoon’s personal touch. Cataloging the artist’s musical and life journey of the past three years, A Product Of My Environment offers the listener both blatant and subtle sonic explorations into its creator’s mind.
