2012 has been a good year for Philly-based producer Jasha Tull, better known as Space Jesus. Playing under the Space Jesus alias for just over a year, Jasha has already graced the stage at Camp Bisco and played the Dubstep Music Awards. Last week he took another big step towards bass music stardom with the release of his PLANiTs EP on MalLabel Music, showcasing a more refined, polished sound to his otherworldly swag.
Combining bassy elements from a wide array of genres, PLANiTS‘ sound rests entirely in another dimension altogether. OMG kicks off the album, bombarding us with alarm-fueled dubstep. Augmented Reality comes in next with some beautifully pitchshifted vocal snips a la UK bass music, before launching into head-swirling house territory. Fish Eggs is more laid back, bringing chilled out, trap-inspired madness complete with free falling percussive hits into the mix. Next, Book One brings some swagger-filled hip hop but not until after Fly becomes the weirdest song to ever get stuck in your head. Broken whistles and pan flutes lead the way in Wikitweaking while Whoopsi Ghostburgler ends the effort with some dark, house-y vibes. PLANiTS is out now on Beatport.
