Cobblestone Jazz - Dump Truck

200612"Techno

Hector Rodriguez: Being unaware of this side project of Mathew Jonsons, I cracked it open expecting something along the lines of his slamming electro fuelled tracks, but I could not have been more wrong: its fuelled by a more jazzy, vaguely Detroit groove. The B side, Peace Offering, is the highlight. An electronic bass line with a simple break provides a foundation, which is punctuated with the occasional reverb soaked keyboard flourish. It works well as anticipation for some incredible jazz inspired keyboard work by band member Tyger Dhula. Its the kind of track that could easily be slipped into a Lindstrom set, especially as a bridge to something a little more forceful.

Nick Sylvester: Apparently Cobblestone Jazz privilege heart over head, are bringing back improvisation to dance music composition, all that… I dunno. Of the three CJ guys I only know Mathew Jonson’s work, but after seeing two monster Ableton sets of his in Montreal a year ago I’m willing to bite. “Dump Truck” has all the makings of Moodymann redux but then somebody in CJ decided to get his glitch on (his words not mine), somebody decided to throw down a boxed Eurohouse progression, somebody decided to over-vocode a bad female vox hookso the less said the better. A better time can be had on the flip. “Peace Offering,” if you remember the no-man’s-land minute between LCD Soundsystems “Yeah” (the song) and LCD Soundsystems “Yeah” (the indulgent acid-house freakout), sounds exactly like that for eleven minutes. It’s a ticking bomb set to rock drums, and it never blows out, not even when CJ add more percussion or trigger (old Herbie?) jazz-funk keyboard riffs in succession. It could have been a “Yeah” disco edit, but there’s no fun in that, which might be the larger lesson here.

Cobblestone Jazz - The Live EP

200512"HouseLeftfield

You couldnt go anywhere a few years ago without hearing the name Matthew Jonson tipped as an amazing new artist to watch out for. Starting in mid-2004, now you cant go anywhere without hearing his name on a new release. Sub Static, M_nus, itiswhatitis, Kompakt. Does this boy sleep? Oh, right, and there is this three-piece group dedicated to the jazzier end of Jonsons work, which is due for a full-length by the end of the year. Judging by this ridiculous slab, its going to be a burner. Those familiar with Jonson have to be getting slightly tired of his schtick by now, but Cobblestone breaks the mold by grafting tuff beats on top of a relatively straight-forward melody. The B-side is even moer jazzy, forsaking the house tempos of the flip, for a nice 100bpm crawl replete with saxophone and effects-laden synthesizer. Keep an eye out for this one.
