Jlin continues her ascension into the pantheon of all-time greats with her score for Wayne McGregor’s Autobiography. It’s typically fervid work from the Gary, Indiana producer. The poise of her high-art, post-footwork style is even sharper than usual here. One can only imagine how riveting these pieces would be when wed to McGregor’s choreography, but the music alone will do just fine.

9/10 Robin Staff review, 26 September 2018

Whatever your beat is, and whether or not it’s the fervent footwork of emerging genius Jlin, this is a staggering release. ‘Autobiography’ is the soundtrack to a performance piece made in collaboration with Wayne McGregor, a choreographer, which debuted at Unsound, everyone’s favourite festival of bass-intensive experimental music, in 2016. While not made entirely in the mould of her relentless LPs, the soundtrack is typical of Jlin in its open-ended and outward relating versatility.

Reflected in the soundtrack is Jilin burning the midnight oil, working long, lonely stretches from two til six in the morning. The stark piano pieces that emerge, unexpectedly, have a gorgeous and twilit feel, interspersed with more dance-oriented beatwork that in turns suggests expansive and claustrophobia, utilising snippets of vocalisation and breath alongside twirling melodic keys and chance spoken samples. It was made to invoke the specifics of McGregor’s dance show, but ‘Autobiography’ sees Jlin’s own approach to writing music expanding beyond the dance world she has previously existed in, offering new types of interpretive sound.

It’s low-key a masterpiece, I’m just gonna say it, melding Jlin’s intense workouts with the kind of music that marks dramatic stage productions, making them feel larger than the space they’re occupying. Jlin’s surely going to become a household name in the world of score-writing, and the music of 'Autobiography' deserves your ears in its own right.
