Planet Mu has announced details of Jlin’s debut album, ‘Dark Energy’, which is scheduled for release on 23rd March. The new album is the latest in a series of footwork LPs that the label has released over the last few years, including standout records from RP Boo, DJ Diamond and Traxman.
‘Dark Energy’ signals a return to the label for the Gary, Indiana-based footwork producer, who contributed two tracks to the ‘Bangs & Works Vol.2’ compilation back in 2011, including forthcoming album cut ‘Erotic Heat’. The eleven-track album picks up where those earlier tracks left off, experimenting with a darker strand of rhythmically jarring and sonically abrasive footwork that matches high energy with high drama.
