Blending elements of house, nu disco, progressive, techno and bass, the upbeat "Trails We Blaze" condenses Jody Wisternoff's personal journey through music into 12 diverse electronic grooves; referencing his classic and contemporary musical loves.
Representing Jody's modern take on Balearic grooves, tracks like the "How You Make Me Smile" (feat. Pete Josef) and the nu-disco influenced "Just One More" are both soulful and sophisticated; perfect for balmy summer nights.
The album isn't without its darker shades, though. Harking back to his years lost in Bristol bass bins, the hypnotic techno groover "95" and the hip-hop indebted "Red Stripes" both reference Jody's love of vintage jungle, while reworks of the Pete Tong-endorsed "Starstrings' and the Beatport number 1 "Cold Drink, Hot Girl" update two of his most classic solo tracks.
A journey that lives up to its title, "Trails We Blaze" is as clean as a mid summer sky, but still captures the complex beauty and deep textures of little fluffy clouds.
