Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a definite maturity in the capabilities of the iOS music world, on several different levels. Without a doubt, the hardware has gotten more powerful, with things like A7 processors, increased RAM, and external devices simply letting iPads and iPhones handle more intensive tasks. The apps have constantly reached new milestones, with things like Audiobus allowing us to connect our ideas; top tier synths like iSEM, Animoog, and Thor opening new sonic worlds; DAWs like Auria providing professional recording and mixing options; and massive effect units like WOW Filterbox, Turnado, and Effectrix allowing us to shape our sound. This is just the beginning too – there’s do doubt that we’ve got the capabilities to do more, dive into productive workflows, and let our creativity run wild like never before.

There’s one important place where immense growth has happened over the past couple of years that’s worth a deep look – within the community of musicians itself. As we’ve seen the hardware and software move forward by leaps and bounds, the musicians that embraced this technology have ran towards their original music at top speed. Individuals that embrace iOS music are folks that are willing to try new things and freely experiment with the creative process. As a result, they’ve found their way through the technology, discovered their musical strengths, and consistently worked towards strong musical statements. There has been a constant flow of amazing iOS music from these musicians, and now that they’ve defined themselves, we’re seeing the fruits of that labor in the form of full albums.

Jesper Jones has long been a regular contributor to the iOS music scene, creating thumping bass music that sounds outstanding on his recently released Apptronica album, Bass-Music. Jesper has always been an interesting and creative artist; for his debut release, he’s framed his work around that sense of diversity. In the official words, Bass-Music is:

a musical tribute to the wonderful globalized world we live in; a world that gathers people from Japan, Ghana, South Africa, Jamaica and France; all converging in the wonderful cultural melting pot of 21st century Sweden, and through the internet making it available anywhere.

It’s a perfect description for the hard hitting and sometimes quirky music that we’ve come to expect from Jesper, and the album lives up to it with a contagious creative energy.

There’s some great tracks on Bass-Music that are certainly worth a listen. I’ve embedded the BandCamp player below so that you can check out the tracks, and then a music video that Jesper has released for one of the songs entitled “Shape Of Human.” Give the music a listen and then support our fellow iOS musician by picking up the album HERE. Remember, this is music made on iOS using apps like NanoStudio, Magellan, and Sunrizer Synth, right from the heart of the iOS music community!
