Parisian producer Jackson Fourgeaud fashions skewed techno and jagged electro from the digital detritus of the 21st century. His choppy, abrasive sound has captivated those who have heard singles like "Utopia" and "Rock On", and the daring experimentation of those records continues throughout this hauntingly futuristic album. Aptly describing the document as a "sound-orgy", Jackson (his "computer band" consists of whoever happens to be around when he’s recording; in this case renegade MC Mike Ladd and Jackon’s vocalist mother and niece) collects fragments from our collective musical subconscious, shreds them into glistening shards and presents us with a collagist cut-up of faltering beats, teetering synthlines and warped melodies. Like Akufen or Prefuse 73, Jackson packs his phantasmagoric vision with enough weight to keep the party-people rapt.--Paul Sullivan

Format: Audio CD
I've found that some of the big hitters of the electronic contingient of Warp seem to have gone off the boil somewhat. I've found Plaid's last effort, Greedy Baby, showing the odd flash of brilliance but on the whole the same frustrating lack of energy and ideas that happened on Spokes. Also Autechre still seem to be languishing in the realms of rhythmic manipulation that I'm sure is very satisfying to create, challenging to listen to but sadly not a pleasure that touches the soul.

While I sift back to the older albums on Warp, enjoy some of the new acoustic elements filtering through, a little electronic gem has nudged its way to the surface. There is an o2 ad campaign that is going on at the moment with a natty little fractured electric affair going on the background, I myself thought "sounds like the kind of thing you'd find on Warp". Lo and behold it IS the thing you find on Warp, its Jackson And His Computer Band and you've been listening to Utopia! Let the full joy of Utopia unfold on you and you get dramatic shifts in synths, fractured female vocal stabs and a crisp electro break. Then you get the absolute dream of a breakdown with a lovely retro snippet of the Utopia vocal, lush.

The album is full of this sparky lively fractured beats approach. Parts of me think Daft Punk, other bits think Plaid, some bits push my dancefloor buttons and others my soundtracky buttons. Thankfully its not a one track album with so many wicked moments like TV Dogs capturing my imagination.

I'm having a good Warp time at the moment with Maximo Park, Gravenhurst, Broadcast and Jackson And His Computer Band showing that the reasonable people are still firing out the cutting edge of music, without getting needlessly lost in technology.

I first became aware of Jackson thanks to the O2 advert where the huge air bubble bounces all over the place, it uses the Utopia track off Smash. If you like electronica this is an excellent choice. It starts and ends really well, the middle seems a bit messy to me, weighed down by what sounds like too much experimentation without many good tunes emerging. However the start and end make it worth buying. The first three tracks are particulary good each one building on the the mood Utopia establishes. Certainly worth repeated listens.

Ah, so this is where JUSTICE got their inspiration. Well, like their 'Cross' album, this collection of amazing sonic assaults is the sort of stuff you would probably hear at a nightclub for the 'Transformers'. Its, edgy, erratic explosive and inventive - play it loud it leaves you breathless. Like French food it uses just about every aural ingredient available with its cut and paste style, and cooks up a dish so satisfying it only leaves you wanting more. Buy this and become TRON for an hour.....
