This November, celebrated dance producer Planningtorock – aka Jam Rostron – will release their radical fourth album: Powerhouse. Powerhouse marks the Berlin-via-Bolton producer’s most intimate album to date, a kinetic, self-produced record flush with attitude, humour, vulnerability and swagger.
Powerhouse was written and recorded across Berlin, London, New York and Los Angeles. It comes couched in the precision-tooled synths that have become Rostron’s signature, though critics and fans will hear a subtle, ear worm-y shift in style here: from the Noughties US r&b swagger of ‘Transome’ and the bubbling oldschool ‘90s house of 'Beulah Loves Dancing' and ‘Non Binary Femme’, to the funky, flute-laced ‘Much To Touch’ (the only track on Powerhouse to feature a co-producer, long-time friend and collaborator Olof Dreijer of The Knife). Read the rest and listen to "Powerhouse" on Bandcamp.
W, Planningtorock’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut on DFA, reveals a visionary and politicised producer. It offers up deeply queered art-pop – tense, atmospheric dance music cut with classical flourishes, and spell-binding androgyny.
"W is a surprisingly warm, immersive journey through territory so alien it feels like some fantastic, surreal dream." - Resident Advisor. | Listen to W on Bandcamp.
