/ G Spot

speedy-j-g-spot

Jochem Paap explores the more atmospheric side of ambient techno on G Spot, his sophomore album. Clocking in at just over an hour in length, this album is book-ended by a pair of fantastic techno-trance hybrids: the sublime Ping Pong (which wouldn’t sound out of place in an old school Goa trance set); and the title track, which simmers and churns at the moderate pace of 130 BPM. The rest of these tunes meander through sublime chill and blissful ambient, amply demonstrating Paap’s studio craftsmanship. Remarkably accomplished for 1995; my only complaint is that it’s over far too soon.
