nice_gender This album really replicates the experience of working in a kitchen with Brooke which is all I've ever wanted from music tbh.

Etkats Against the designer's recommendations, I will be using this for the dance floor. I hope this does not break the warranty.

    Oakland's odi me returns to Jacktone for her 2nd release in as many years with "line cook music." The album begins with a familiar sound palette explored in her first release, titled tilde (~), but, soon moves into new territory entirely - breaks, pummeling techno, jungle, and melodic experiments.

    Beginning with ‘6am’, a fever dream of hallucinatory ambience unfolds until 5 minutes into the track, a strong line of percussion guides the piece into wakefulness. On ‘knewiwoulddothis’, odi me engages the vernacular of drum and bass in a fresh manner, distorting familiar drum programming so that it reverberates and garbles against the backdrop of a brooding drone. This strategy effectively renders ‘accounting’ into a fascinating and encompassing environment. Not to be painted into a corner, she rallies against the contemplative with ‘labor’, a dusty warehouse rager that could sit comfortably on a Lobster Theremin compilation. There is a raw aggression that rubs shoulders with the more meditative elements of this release, which should pique the interests of techno experimentalists.

    "Line Cook Music‘s first six tracks manage to be both highly percussive and totally weightless at once. The lush, beautiful “6am” sets the stage, pairing a touching synthesizer melody with a swell of bass that soon becomes a bass drum. “Open” and “Call In” flirt with breakbeats, but use them texturally. “Hollow” features an unexpected, brilliantly placed guitar sample. Then comes “Knewiwoulddothis,” a breathtaking work that melds percussive, emotive synths with a disembodied Amen break. Tunes like this come once in a blue moon." - SF Weekly

    from odi me: "I've never felt connected with club culture. I didn't get into dance music because of friends or drugs. I made it long before I was even aware of what a DJ actually is. I came up in this craft because I needed the energy for dinner service. Line Cook Music isn't designed for the club. It's designed for the restaurant, and it's purpose is to empower cooks with tickets all across the board, and a prep list from here to the floor. Thank you Miguel, Fabi, Santos, Joel, Nick, and all the other bad ass chefs I've been blessed enough to be able to make art with."
