Clif Jack is back on his record label MJA The Vision with a pounding two-track techno EP.

One of the breakthrough techno artists of 2023, Clif Jack is an Italian DJ and producer who last year made his debut on Reinier Zonneveld’s Filth On Acid and Juliet Fox’s TREGAMBE, alongside releases on other prestigious labels such as Simina Grigoriu’s Kuukou.

MJA The Vision is a record label and event series that Clif Jack has launched to be the next chapter of his evolution, and alongside his own music the imprint has also signed music by the likes of Luca Morris, Vikthor and AM.I.

After launching MJA The Vision at the end of 2023, this is Clif Jack’s second release on his imprint, and talking about this new EP, he said: “Silenzio Follia’ came to be after a moment of inspiration during a studio session when I was lost inside my own thoughts. I had the idea to create a track that would represent a stark contrast between absolute silence and an explosion of madness. It was during such a moment that I had an unexpected conversation with a friend where I told him my idea. After me and my friend talked, I realised I had accidentally recorded the conversation with him, and the discussion had generated some audio that I thought was perfect to sample. The word “Follia” meaning “Madness” in English became a commanding vocal that I used as the focal point of the track. There are other words such as Silenzio (Silence), Calma (Calm), Suono (Sound), Rumore (Noise) and Spazio (Space) that I also cut from the conversation, plus some phrases that in the context of the track sounded really poignant. I was a little nervous my friend might be upset that I had used words in my track from a private conversation, but he loved the idea, and was blown away when he heard what I had made. So, I have to thank him for being a part of this inspiration.”

The EP opens with the title track “Silenzio Follia,” which has a pounding kick drum and rumbling bassline as the foundation for the intense lead synth. The track contrasts between the swelling madness of the lead synth, and the drops that cut to a moment of silence before the menacing lead synth regains control.

Track two, “The Radar” is more subdued compared to its predecessor, but it still packs a punch with tough percussion overlayered by thrashing hi-hats. The fluttering melodies of the lead synth add an uplifting euphoria and sense of tranquillity that’s underpinned by the dark atmosphere created by sweeping pads.

Amirali’s innate ability to mesmerise an audience has also earned him a prestigious BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and he has enamoured mainstage crowds at festivals and underground events in far-flung countries ranging from China to Brazil.

“Whispers of Deceit” is built on a foundation of acidic bassline and robust percussion, while a dramatic sequence of samples bursts forth to create a trippy atmosphere full of anticipation. Rhythmic synth stabs and psychedelic guitar licks accompany vocals speaking of a failed society. The track’s rolling groove and jackin’ rhythms create a raw machine funk that’s perfect for the dance floor.
