John Tejada on “Cleaning Sounds…” :
“This album commemorates the 10 year anniversary of Palette Recordings. It continues some thoughts i had during back for basics (His 2005 Album with Arian Leviste) . I still feel very nostalgic about dance music which could also be listened to at home. Something that i feel happens less these days. The new album is a big combination of these nostalgic ideas while also pushing forward into new ideas. the idea that musical elements and melody are very important. The album follows a theme i can't properly put into words, but it's capturing a feeling of a time when i was very excited about dance music. The album was recorded over the first half of the year in my largely hardware based studio. I feel this hardware production approach lends more to spontaneity in the studio. a studio that in a way has come full cycle in gear and ideas from when i started working together with Arian (Leviste) 15 years ago.
