S024: Abjo - Anagoge
We are dropping off our last release of 2012 with you by one of our most talented artists: AbJo. This will be our 17th release of the year and 24th release overall. We put in so much effort into making sure that every release and move we made this year was the most consistent and forward thinking. There is no better way to end the year than with a sophomore Soulection release from AbJo. Anagoge really displays his sound progression and diversity as an artist. We remember having a heavy music session in the car this past summer 2012 and he played a handful of tracks off Anagoge. When we heard ‘Megalomania’ we were instantly gravitated towards this new AbJo sound and it was right then and there that we realized we needed to push for this second release. Enjoy this one to the fullest.
Our plans for 2013 will be much heavier than this past year. Thank you for supporting and pushing us to this very plateau. Respect.
"ANAGOGE is both a serious statement and a simple display of my ability to step somewhere out of my usual boundaries. In this way, it expands my boundaries, but in the gravity of the messages I hide both in the sounds, and in the foreign and holistic name titles of my songs, I also intend to expand other peoples' boundaries. Really, everyone says that I'm some genre-bending virtuoso or what have you, and this was my way of trying to live up to that a bit, while putting my signature twist on things. Everything about this album, each song, each name title, the order of the songs, how many songs there are, even in a sense, the duration of the songs and the whole album, were intentionally decided upon and modified to convey my own personal message: to you as well as myself. Interpret it as you will, look up the meanings of the name titles, stare at and bask in the grandiosity that is the album cover, but most importantly, listen intently. As loud as you can. Let the sounds envelope you. Go for it. Ascend..."
THANK YOU for your love & support in 2012 and get ready for SO MUCH more from Soulection in 2013
