iTunes Review

Despite her Chicago-area pedigree, Jlin never really subscribed to the accepted templates for making footwork or juke tunes; her cut-cut-cut-cut-paste production would challenge even the most skilled dancers. Black Origami takes Jlin even further down the rabbit hole, and proves her to be a real master of texture and atmosphere. The vocal samples on “Enigma” might vaguely hint at NOLA bounce, but in their heavily deconstructed state, the track works more like a haze-inducing narcotic than something to get the crowd hyped. The same goes for “Kyanite,” a showcase of mind-blowing drum programming. Footwork dancers in need of a breather, EDM fans ready to take a big leap: Black Origami is a pathway to new possibilities.
