Jan Jelinek – Tendency

Jan Jelinek is a Berlin-based electronic producer. He’s known for his abstract style of moiré in which he reduces beat patterns to a third dimension.

The minimalist track ‘Tendency’ appears on the album Loop – Finding – Jazz – Records, originally released in 2001. So it predates the dub-techno framework later adopted by Burial and the likes of Forest Swords.

Essential.

It’s Not ‘Mess.’ It’s Creativity.

“While cleaning up certainly has its benefits, clean spaces might be too conventional to let inspiration flow.”

A messy desk could be a symptom of busyness but also creativity. But so too can a clean desk, since being organized is part of keeping only what’s essential and what’s a priority.

You ultimately need both types of desk spaces, one squalor where you’re allowed the freedom to throw out everything on the table and one minimalist area to do focused work.
