Against All Logic is the pseudonym of Nicolas Jaar and under it he’s released a collection of soul focused house music made between 2012 to 2017. The mix of old and more obscure samples with heavily compressed and distorted electronics gives the tracks a unique flair in a well trodden formula.
On the track I Never Dream sampled drums are chopped to add extra groove to accompany the vocal swells and synths. By the four minute mark the vocal samples are mangled to a joyous rapture of positive energy which provide a counter point to the more downplayed synth section. It manages to keep an energetic and enthusiastic style throughout that’s infectiously fun on repeat listens.
