LA producer John Tejada has always been a consistent artist, but "Condition" is one of his most memorable releases in the past few years. Instead of focusing his efforts on intricate sound design, Tejada has decided this time to play solely to his greatest strength - his sense of melody. The title track is based on a purring melancholic bass that builds gently yet which contains a hint of menace, like "Snivilisation"-period Orbital in techno mode. However, it's "The Living Night" which really impresses: over a rolling yet more understated bass, its mournful, trancey hooks build and ebb in that effortless manner that only Tejada is capable of.
