John Tejada Returns with New Album for Kompakt
- Words: Cam Curran
Veteran electronic artist John Tejada is preparing to release his second LP for Cologne-based Kompakt, The Predicting Machine, later this summer. Following last year's Parabolas album, on which Tejada expertly sculpted a clean techno LP with flourishes of pop sensibility in line with the Kompakt sound, the new release will see the Vienna-born, Mexican-American producer really hone in on the label's aesthetic. Speaking on his forthcoming album, Tejada says, "I dug deeper on the modular side, trying out many new things, which inspired a lot of the songs... This felt like it had a direct purpose. I think that freed me a bit creatively." The Predicting Machine will be released on double-12", CD and digital formats on September 10. Before then, you can take a look at the tracklist and cover art below.
