Jackson Whalan & Jules Jenssen - Home Again [Nest HQ Premiere]

by Jackson Whalan



"Home Again" was conceived in California amidst a cross-country tour from the east coast, and was completed in SubStation Studio in The Berkshires, MA upon returning home. Long-time allies in music and friendship, Jackson and Jules transmitted soulful phrases using the Moog Sub37, flipped some obscure vinyl into horns and one shots, and captured a live drum tone reminiscent of a smokey 70s Motown record. This track is noticeably analog and hip-hop at it's foundation, yet it seeks to thump with with a similar momentum to that felt in the current of digitally programmed music.
