with all of the commotion
and whatnot taking place
surrounding the possibilty
of major internet sites being
blocked in an effort to keep
pirating from happening,
proc records encourages
it's artists to become
even more networked
than before, and to embrace
originality through open-source
such is the way
of our culture
to simply steal
thoughts and ideas
from other people and
build upon them,
that very few so-called
artists, (specifically
those who are heard on
the radio)
are doing anything
original or worthwhile.
however, once again, proc
proves the point the neccessity
for a counter-culture
movement to exist through
an internet medium.
having access to accepting,
open minded individuals
such as Mr. Nick Newland is truly
a treasure and one that should
be embraced and carefully

Nick is the newest member to
the proc-rec family, and while
his impact on the music
scene has been quite noticable
(...seppuku+ and DATAMOSHPIT...)
we have only recently had
the pleasure of experiencing
his musical awesomeness
firsthand just recently.
An amazing debut
album, JEM is all over
the genre-map, finding solice
in various forms of ambience,
and atmospheric
techno, and even
bits of harsh
power-noise electronica,
all of which have a very
chilling and calculated
detachment about them
that leave the listener
feeling left on the outside
looking into the mind
of Nick, which could
very well be a pandora's box
in and of itself.

what I found most
interesting about
this release was it's
old-school sound, which
reminded me very much
of the early days of orbital
in some aspects.
this of course is merely
my own opinion and intended
to be a compliment
held in the highest regards.
(Output 28 is what
really gave this effect
on me).
this is truly a wonderful
little album
and can be played in a variety
of circumstances, the best
of which require
full attentiveness and a good
pair of headphones, although
I've also found it to
be adequate as
a background-music
album as well.

regardless of HOW you listen
to it, just make sure you do.

the first of hopefully many
more to come at proc
from him...


noise will be noise
