Amsterdam-based Israelis Juju & Jordash have always been difficult to pin down, but in recent times their musical shifts have been getting ever more frequent. Their digital-only 2008 debut album, major mishap, portrayed them as electronic jazz experimentalists. The 2009 follow-up, a first outing for Dekmantel, saw them play around with new beat, Italo, deep house and murky analogue techno. Since then, their excursions have fallen into two camps; off-kilter leftfield house (see the space disco on crack vibes of Golf Channel release “Jewsex”) or formidable analogue workouts designed to please dancefloors.

You can separate the true musical mavericks from their lesser contemporaries by the lack of interest shown in merely treading the same waters upon which your name was established, no matter how highly celebrated a canon it is. Despite what the Dope Jams crew have to say, most would agree Konotop’s self professed spiritual warrior Vakula belongs in this category, with the diverse nature of his output so far this year – two artists albums under different names with a third to follow on Firecracker – edging in ever more ambitious directions than the intricately arranged deep house that dominated his prolific output between 2010 -11.
“It would be tough for us to float around an abstract world full of aesthetic concepts without having the real world creep up inside our business. There’s not enough dope in the world for that.” So says Jordan Czamanski, one half of Amsterdam based duo Juju & Jordash.
Techno Primitivism, the forthcoming album from Amsterdam based duo JuJu & Jordash, remains one of our most anticipated slabs of 2012 – get yourselves wet with anticipation too with this audio visual peak at one of the album’s tracks, “Rogue Wave”.

Arguments over what exactly constitutes “live” electronic music are often as circular and dull as the most listless of pre-programmed laptop sets, but David Moufang isn’t in the mood to pull punches: “It’s like taking a piss on people,” says the man better known as veteran of leftfield electronica Move D. “They map their tracks on Ableton and then they crossfade them, and I’ve seen people I really respected pulling this trick. We’re all fed up with this.”
