ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jacob Todd's Passage is CP Recording's first album project. The album features over 60 minutes of original music written, produced and programmed by Jacob Todd. Minimal downtempo breaks fuse with edgy progressive house and melodic riffs float along to capture a unique mood. Collaborations with respected vocalists Kelly Noland and Jillian Kiggins further enhance the album, leading to an eclectic showcase.

Jacob has been djing for six years and began producing electronic dance music in 2002. Jonathan Lisle’s M-Theory Records released Jacob’s first single entitled “Nothing Is Real” in 2004. Dubbed "the Photek of progressive breaks" by Meat Katie for its "solid rhythm, clever programming, and rocking beats," Nothing is Real was featured on both Anthony Pappa's Balance CD and John Digweed's Kiss 100 radio show. His follow-up record "The Metaphysics of Paper" was released on 3 Beat Breaks later that year and was again featured by John Digweed on his Kiss 100 radio show. Nick Warren then chose the Aural Imbalance remix of Jacob’s “Somehow” to be included on his Shanghai compilation for Global Underground. Jacob established his record label Emote Music in 2006 in an effort to expand his musical reach.

Simon Ross

An excellent trip through progressive house and breaks
The album sparks into life with a two semi-ambient tracks; the first, ‘The Face of Time’, and the second, Todd’s teasing remix of Relisys ‘Grayer’, that builds and builds without ever really peaking. We slip up a gear with ‘What Tomorrow Brings’, which features the soulful vocals of Kelly Noland, before sliding into the breaks mix of ‘Cyclosomefuckingthing’, a track that manages to balance smooth melodies and a demonic, sitar-like lick.

By the time ‘Shattered’ comes around we are in full swing, with growling basslines and syncopated beats hammering out their twisted sounds; the melodies are subtle but strong. The tough mix of ‘Cyclosomefuckingthing’ lives up to its name, featuring a pounding straight 4/4 beat and synths and leads that become increasingly bizarre as the track progresses. Jillian Kiggins’ vocals slice across ‘Cover Me’, adding a melancholy edge to another pounding bassline. The heavy atmospherics continue into ‘No Escape’ and through the Chable-style ‘Used To Be’. ‘Promises’ is an uptempo, melody rich number backed by Kelly Noland’s vocals; ‘Home’ concludes the album with busy percussion work and twinkling keys.

The album is sequenced together, one track blended into the next to create a seamless journey through this particular musical passage, one that captivates and stimulates with equal measure. ‘Passage’ is certainly one not to be missed.
