As Bird of Paradise, Jo Howard’s rise has followed a steady yet decidedly non-linear trajectory. His productions, though most often within the house/techno continuum, never re-hash or re-present. He never settles for simple variation. They re-vere sure, with a clear knowledge of the sound’s history and many iterations, but Jo is constantly experimenting, seeking out new styles and bending the tried-and-true to his willful imagination. Previous releases include an accomplished and unusual EP with Join Our Club, a loopy, metallic single on Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant, and a remix for fellow Correspondant-associate Man Power via Throne of Blood. The British producer has also made himself known as a DJ, honing his skills at his own Cubik party in his hometown of Sunderland and as a resident at the aforementioned Man Power’s Tourist Parties in Newcastle. Ultimately he’s played alongside some of the world’s most respected, including Todd Terje, John Talbot, Daniel Avery and Ivan Smagghe. For a career moving quick, Pom Fritz Choke is another brick in the wall, no doubt, but it’s also, as ever, an exploration of new palettes and vibes. Fair to say this is one of the most well-humored Bird of Paradise releases, buffed up with wriggling synth textures and some deliciously overblown moments. To start, the title track showcases an epic side-chained bass oozing between kicks like thick oil as sparkling alien synths and needling hats grit the confection. With parts in place it comes to sound like the neural workings of a god-like mecha raising from the depths — big-room track indeed. A remix by, yes, Man Power follows, releasing pressure from the original’s ultra-deep, in-ear sound and shearing its warm timbre in favor of hard, un-burnished synths and skimming drums. A surprise breakbeat build toward the start deserves special mention for its on-point incongruity. Next, “Organ Husband” can fairly be described as “mental,” with a hammering metallic bass and intricate acid-synth details etching out a crystalline dance structure. Closer “Borell” is no doubt a highlight, with massive chord blasts that verge on sci-fi trailer FX and a finely-modulated, highly-irradiated bass growling underneath. Pom Fritz Choke is a tasty, compact affair, rough around the edges and insistent yet exceptionally crafted and unceasingly fun.
