2562 will release a new four-track EP, Air Jordan, in March.
The most substantial release from the Dutch producer since last year’s album, Fever, 2562 claims that Air Jordan has been “a year and a half in the making – spiritually, at least”, and comes heavily inspired by the kingdom of Jordan.
The record soundtracks a 2010 roadtrip “through a captivating country, just before the sudden rush that became last year’s Fever. Based on field recordings taken in various bustling city centres, rugged desert landscapes, peaceful cornfields, lively amphitheatres, abandoned villages and ancient temples, its four tracks capture glimpses of Jordan’s often stark and desolated scenery as well as its warm and vivid spirit, channelled and reinterpreted through a simple recording device and a sampler.”
It features four new tracks from 2562, and will be released through 2562’s own When In Doubt label on March 19 (vinyl) and March 26 (digital).
