Image: 1610286 Dday One revisits Journal with a ten track extended version entitled
Journal | Extended. The release features remastered versions of the
original four tracks accompanied by six previously unreleased cuts.
The tracks on Journal | Extended date from the same period, as
the prolific Dday One was realizing a spectrum of sample-based
experiments. Influenced by personal entries from Dday One’s
studio journals (one of which is pictured in the cover art), the music
shows the producer constructing new musical possibilities within his
unique style. Flipped beats and layered samples abound, placed in
compelling arrangements that affirm Dday One’s pensive attention
to detail. Tracks like “Heiwa”, evoking the melancholia of a traveler’s
search for inner truth, “Meaning”, characterized by otherworldly tones
and textures, and “Rhythm Section”, with its playful introduction to
the cut’s instrumentation elements, are just a few highlights of this
skillful selection.
Journal | Extended was remastered by legendary Bay Area engineer
Bruce Leighton, known for his work with Public Enemy and The
Coup. The project also features photography by Dday One, including
images of notes, ideas, and sketches from his studio journals. These
photos provide an intimate look into the producer’s creative process.
