Veteran Los Angeleno producer John Tejada unveils his thirteenth Studio Album entitled Dead Start Program. He named it after a system that started an iconic 1960s supercomputer called the CDC 6600, which is used to represent a ‘metaphorical reboot from the challenges life throws at you’. Moreover, he’s said to have used a ‘limited studio setup’ to create the 11 tracks on offer. From the moody and disjointed hypnotic of opening track “Autoseek”, the old-school west coast breaks of “Sleep Spindle” to the brooding smack electro of “Loss” or the bouncy dancefloor euphoria of “The Looping Generation” – which is indeed classic Tejada all the way! The album comes courtesy of Cologne institution Kompakt: an imprint he’s had a strong rapport with since 2011. Tejada celebrated his own esteemed label’s two decades in the business on the retrospective Palette Recordings 20 (The Early Years) ?back in 2016. Although mainly a vessel for his own work, it has also birthed several collaborations with longtime colleagues Arian Leviste and Justin Maxwell.
