Solvent, born Jason Amm in Zimbabwe, and currently residing in Toronto, Canada, has been releasing his unique brand of analogue-synthesizer-pop music since 1997. Best known for his releases on Morr Music (2001's Solvent City) and Ghostly International (2004's Apples & Synthesizers, 2005's Elevators & Oscillators), Solvent is also co-founder of the obscure, yet influential electro(nica) label, Suction Records. Solvent has created his own unique version of electro: too elegant and sincere for the electroclash set, too complex and contemporary to sound like it was recorded in 1981, and too seeped in the time-honored traditions of melody, songwriting and hands-on synthesis to be lost in the overcrowded world of laptop techno. Solvent is widely regarded in the underground electronica community as being at the forefront of electro-pop's return to form.

A few things. I think I should say that this is going to be a simple album and the start of a purposeful shift in that direction. Straightforward songs with only the barest of essentials. One of the nice things of breaking from the whole Legacy thing is that I'm able to move forward into subtractive production and recording. Instead of building, adding and layering to infinity (Legacy Series), I now chip things away until only what is absolutely necessary is left in the mix. You could argue that The Tick Tock Treasury took this kind of approach towards subtractive-ness (can't possibly be a word), and though it was minimal to an extent, to me it was more of a somewhat static throwback to earlier albums, whereas now I feel I'm pushing into newer, more detailed and well thought out territory. The great thing about working primarily with eight tracks (though there are ways to stretch that out if need be) is just how mindful you need to be with any given sound because of how much it's going to be used throughout the song.
