New Music: Jan Blomqvist – The Space In Between

  • New Music: Jan Blomqvist - The Space In Between

Jan Blomqvist is a Berlin-based solo artist credited with inventing ‘concert techno’, with its core elements of dreamy vocals and stripped down beats. A musical journey that has encompassed the raw energy of punk and the dark rhythms of techno has led him to the sunlit uplands of his current sound, as exemplified on new track The Space In Between.

There’s a pure and simple energy to The Space In Between, sleek and refined – if it was a car it would be a Mercedes – sophisticated yet understated, confident its own sheer class and quality without needing to shout about it from the rooftops. With musical nods to acts like mind.in.a.box and Acid Pauli, you can feel the song’s clubland DNA in every note, but its chilled sensibility gives it a very universal feel.

The Space In Between is out now on Armada Electronic Elements and will feature on Blomqvist’s upcoming album Disconnected which is due out this autumn.
