when jérôme chassagnard began creation of his second solo album, his intentions were to create the expression of a science-fiction scenario set in the not-too-distant future through the medium of sound, beyond any 'space opera' like ambitions. the time from underneath is influenced by movies like 'gattaca', imaginary futuristic urban environments and time travel - all of which are favorite topics often used by such luminaries as ray bradbury and stanley kubrick who are some of jérôme's main influences. this album showcases jérôme's ability to transform these creative inputs into music. focusing on electronica, darker ambient and intelligent dance music, he uses these styles without losing his own musical fingerprint and blends them into one seamless and effortlessly soaring whole. the time from underneath is an amalgam of quiet, dreamy atmospheres, at times supported by an energetic play of rectilinear downtempo grooves and laid-back emotional textures with melancholic keyboard chords taking the listener to places which do not yet exist. from time to time a glimpse of darkness and slight melancholic sadness hides behind the mirror of technology, accentuated by sporadic voice samples and field recordings. a deep, atmospheric album recommended to all of those that seek a pleasant listening experience by stepping into the possible world of tomorrow.
