Self Jupiter's Encouraging Notes
It isn't often when forces come together as strongly as on Self Jupiter's debut solo 12". Here he teams up with not one, but two of my favorite producers: OD aka Omid, and Elusive. Elusive handles the title cut, an almost pastoral salutation to everybody's health, good fortune, and well-being; while OD handles the flipside - both literally and figuratively, with the creepy, disturbing sex/snuff track "It Was On This Night."
Jupiter has had a troubled life, not to mention career. He's held in almost god-like esteem by his fans as the mad genius of a group of mad geniuses, yet much of the acclaim he deserves has been denied to him due to one unfortunate circumstance or another. The two songs on this 12" sum up this duality perfectly - the bright and the dark sides of Jupiter.
