“’Fingers’ is created from natural, acoustic sounds in an artificial space, a little in the way that dreams work. Taking sounds that trigger memories or feelings but shifting the context they are in so they become something entirely different.”
Jogging House is the artist name of Boris Potschubay, a synthesist and composer from Frankfurt, Germany, who has a free approach to composition and a uniquely serene and sensual sound.
His tracks are about taking things slowly, but also doing the unexpected. He combines ambient soundscapes with laid-back grooves and countless little melodies and detail, creating beautiful music that isn't related to a certain time or place but aims to explore feelings and moods through sound, taking his listeners along the journey.
With ‘Fingers’ he wanted to make a track that makes the listener feel weightless and drifting, but at the same time warm comfortable and at home.
“It is hard to really define ambient music, as it is such a very vague genre. For some it is just background music in spas, for others it is generative music and yet others focus on complex compositions. For me personally it is a way of calming down and being free. Not having to follow any rules and just listening to yourself, maybe even discovering a side of you that you weren’t in touch with before.”
There is a subtle but undeniable groove that exists across the entirety of ‘be’. The sounds created by Jogging House are immaculately crafted, of course, with space to breathe and morph in an organic way. But it is the slight swing of “Yours” and the 6/8 sway of “Strings” that keeps me coming back for more. Jogging House continues to deepen his already impressive catalog. The Lifted Index
