Artist of The Week


On the heels of his stunning January-released 2-tracker Nóstra Dóna De La Gárdia, which included a Nick Muir rework, French progressive maestro Jickow returns with another slick double-sider, Escapism / Echoes. Both tracks encapsulate the essence of Jickow’s darker, peak-time-primed sound, contrasting his last EP, which boasts rich, ethereal sonic textures.  


The project leads with “Escapism,” an immersive journey through haunting melodies and driving rhythms that create a sense of otherworldliness. The pulsing bassline and intricate percussion weave together seamlessly to create a hypnotic atmosphere that is both introspective and euphoric. “Echoes” takes us on a more uplifting journey with its soaring synths and driving beat. The melody evokes a sense of hope and triumph, while the intricate percussion creates a sense of movement and progression. An ode to the parties hosted at Ibiza’s prolific underground club DC10, the track aims to encapsulate the essence of its legendary clubbing experience.

Melodic techno producer Jickow presents his latest release, a 2-track EP that showcases his signature style of deep and emotive techno. With this EP, Jickow has once again proven his mastery in creating soundscapes that resonate with listeners on a visceral level. The Marseille native’s ability to blend melody, rhythm, and atmosphere into a cohesive whole is on full display with this EP. Fans of melodic techno will find much to love here, while newcomers will discover a fresh and exciting sound that is both emotive and dancefloor-friendly. Recently debuting on Kognitiv Records with “Something Is Burning,” Jickow keeps the momentum going with this killer double tracker.

Surfing between progressive to techno genres, Jickow crafts a sound that is both innovative and nostalgically familiar. His records have received support from A-tier artists, including Sven Vath, Solomun, ARTBAT, Popof, Miss Monique, UMEK, Joris Voorn, Sasha, and many more. Year after year, Jickow continues to have the privilege of working with several distinguished and renowned artists to create memorable projects, such as Nick Muir, Robert Babicz, Matt Sassari, Criss Source, and Timid Boy, to name a few.
