Jam’s marks the 51beats’ 10 years anniversary with a touching piano-based ambient release of unique deepness and melancholy
“We introduced different times releases from 51beats. The indipendent label was born in 2008 having the mission to promote high quality, innovative, and emotional electronic music without distinctions among genres. They celebrate their 10th birthday with a new release from Jam’s. Le Temps d’un Rêve is out on March 1st.
We have the pleasure to premiere the track “Existence”. We also had a talk with 51beats handlers about their work of these 10 years. “
“…atmosfere ambient e neo-classiche con il dovuto tocco chill. Jam’s era già apparso su 51beats nel qualche anno addietro, a marzo torna con un lavoro più completo ed intenso, adatto a festeggiare il decimo compleanno di una netlabel oramai rimasta tra le ‘storiche’ in un panorama Creative italiano …”
[2008-2018] Jam’s will mark the 51beats’ 10 years anniversary with a touching piano-based ambient release of unique deepness and melancholy. In 2010, during the first quite exceptional participation of 51beats to the Qwartz Electronic Music Awards in Paris, we got in contact with Jam’s, which later released his debut-album “Homeless Soul” with us. It is an immense pleasure to host Jam’s again on 51beats to celebrate our first 10 years.

“Since establishing a few years back, 51 Beats has quickly emerged as one of Italy’s most eclectic labels, and is just as likely to host discerning techno from The Analogue Cops as it is acid business from Acid Castello and more obscure beats from up-and-comers such as Tracya & Crayon Mortel.”
DG: “Your sound is a mix between dubstep, house and garage / bass music.
Is difficult for you to maintain a purist approach to these styles, without getting influenced too much?” READ THE ANSWERS …..
Crayon Mortel who takes the reins for the first half of the release, getting things underway courtesy of ’Everything has to end somewhere’, a luscious jam with echoes of Gui Boratto at his Kompakt best. A track that quickly emerges into the sort of ethereal cut that Four Tet would be proud of, it’s immediate form the off that this is electronic music with soul. ‘Blossoms’ keeps matters ticking over with more twinkling melodies and unusual soundscapes, before ‘Cantalupe’ is characterised by its clever synth stabs and shrewd vocals. Mortel’s final contribution here is ‘The Third Night’. Another track that emphasises the producer’s eclecticism, it glides at a wonderful pace before it engulfs the listener in a warm glow. Truly stunning stuff, we’re sure you’ll agree.
