"Lingering from the echoes of a few select owners, Actual Jakshun's 'Sequential Circus' was limited-access before 2005 to say the least. Grabbing the ears and attention of Richie Hawtin (exposed by Ricardo Villalobos), Jakshun has been present but mainly underground since the singles' debut in 2000. Originally released on Incomplet, 'Sequential' was freed out of Oakland, California's experimental techno freakout scene of the late 1990s with characters like Jakshun, Televazquez, K. Blectum and B. Blectum in effect. The label produced only two releases which were limited editions featuring detailed hand-fashioned artwork and laying down some future blueprints at the same time. Operating on 'less is more,' the track was made almost exclusively on a single Sequential Circuits Studio 440 (circa 1986), fusing sampling, sequencing, drum programming and more all-in- one machine. Half a decade has passed and the outer-edge minimal rawness of 'Sequential Circus' is back, here with a new remix by Run Stop Restore's Marc Houle along with two unreleased tracks from the original sessions -- the pulsing throb of 'Sulkr' and the erratic gallop of 'Chup Chup.' The EP is challenging as it is playful, turning and swerving with compu-rhythms and edits that seem more random than humanly accidental. Minus is proud to re-issue these underground gems, even though our jackets aren't hand-dipped in red latex paint like the original, time for respect to Actual Jakshun."
