Jacek Sienkiewicz presents Hideland. Sound and rhythm are effective means of individual's self-defense in face of chaotic steamroller of everyday life. Hiding in a familiar yet simultaneously hardly recognizable parallel space does not have to result from the need to escape the world or nurture one's ego. Too many times to mention, music appearing under Recognition imprint served as a peculiar type of a vehicle of survival and a tool for internal transformation. Hideland, the new record by Polish electronic music producer Jacek Sienkiewicz is released precisely a year after Drifting (2015), which largely explored tropes of classical club techno sound. It is Sienkiewicz 's expedition into the unknown, exploration of topographical margins, both possible and impossible. The nine tracks comprising this album go beyond easy-to-pigeonhole genres, creating a microcosm of utopian sound constructs. This surprisingly unobvious and precisely composed release could be fascinating both for loyal fans and for new listeners looking for threads of experimentalism. In "Desert Plan" and "Kingdom of Lo" one can hear references to extra-temporal Detroit harmonies, while the minimalism of the title track or the alchemic trippy house of "Radionist" provoke questions rather than serve ready-to-use answers. Melancholic compositions of mosaic-like structure ("Gone") are distinctly contrasted with miniatures saturated with distant galaxy hum like "Summer 2016". From enigmatically rhythmic opener "Hide Away", to 12-minute-plus "Last Run" which sets obsessive percussion against impressionistic sound splashes, the constantly morphing and the self-contained 3D landscape of Hideland is a perfect place of seclusion, refuge, and hiding for lost souls and seasoned listeners alike. It's another intriguing proposal in Jacek Sienkiewicz's growing discography, but above all, it is a laboratory where dreams and artistic visions metamorphose into concrete reality.
