For many the ultimate visionary and sonic wizard, Mathew Jonson delivers a rare solo album for Crosstown Rebels with Her Blurry Pictures, encompassing a new evolution in his rhythmically complex and timeless approach over eight fluid and rich compositions.
Although distinctive as Jonson’s production style, Her Blurry Pictures marks the end of a phase for the Canadian in which he used music as a tool of escapism and looking within. Predominantly made in his studio in Berlin in 2012, alongside some older choices from his hometown of Vancouver, Her Blurry Pictures maps his coming into focus, moving into a new chapter of reflection, remaining present and finding a deeper connection.
My solo material is introspective and I go deep into each feeling and direction. In the studio I keep an intuitive way of working where there is freedom outside the laws of musical training. The last few years my life has seen a transition from darker states into something filled with light. This has led to the release of my latest album. -Mathew Jonson.
Mathew Jonson really is one of a kind. He’s developed one of the most distinctive voices in electronic dance music: when you hear one of Jonson‘s tracks, you almost immediately know it’s his. His music offers a rare fusion of populist intensities and nuanced musicality, with a keen understanding for the needs of the dancefloor and spanning elegant electronica, emotive techno and the universal laws of house. As proof of this, we leave remembering one of his previous works on Crosstown Rebels.
