Jan Youri – “T.E.R.M”


“T.E.R.M” transports listeners to another world with its futuristic synth effervescence, spoken-word infusions, and excitable arp-laden charisma. The track comes courtesy of French artist Jan Youri. The self-taught singer/songwriter, instrumentalist, and producer traverses into the electronic realm with the release of the Electronikation Volume 1 EP, for which “T.E.R.M” serves as the opening track.

The John Connor vocal sample from Terminator Salvation traverses into spacey synths and pulsing percussive excitement; the aesthetical pursuit is compelling from the get-go, furthered by the arp push thereafter. The intermittent vocal samples and steady, otherworldly soundscape combines for a riveting listening experience throughout. “T.E.R.M” is a thorough atmospheric success from Jan Youri, whose EP stirs in its balancing of infectious melodic loops with contemplative, evolving soundscapes.
