Jan Blomqvist has come to sonically represent the fusing of acoustic, folk, soul and pop elements into a warm dance sound. Over the past 3 years Jan Blomqvist has not only been a part of this development, but has consistently underscored it with his tireless touring and countless releases, helping to build a foundation for this exciting new genre. It's a sound that until recently was relegated to the second floor, warm-up sets and afterhours, but now has found legs in the main rooms, the big stages and in the mainstream

Time Again is no exception - a huge summer track that crystallizes the guitar-led electronic pop club sound. More than a Johnny Cash edit or a Wankelmut retouch however, Jan created a every sound and melody from scratch and nursed them for years through various incarnations. Now the time is right for Jan to let this track go as summer is approaching and people are primed, receptive and longing for clean club-tested electronic-pop with acoustic folk-rock feel. Right from the start of the track the influences are evident, from techno to deep house, blues to indie, all coming together as the massive opening chorus explodes with Blomqvist's instantly recognizable voice launching over his thick signature bass line. The shiny guitar hook smacks of summer, sunsets, and feelings of nostalgia while simultaneously propelling us forward, mirroring the progress of electronic music as it now firmly embraces its better half, rhythm and blues.

A wicked dark strum echoes through the verse, setting a tone like a Tarantino western as Jan's cracking vocals release the tension through the realization that 'things just weren't working'. Not just another breakup song, but like all Blomqvist tracks it's a multi-layered story about the struggle with oneself, city life and Berlin. It's about recognizing deep disconnect and routines which do not foster growth. Berlin is a city where people arrive with an expectation of experiencing something fantastic, which they usually find. But in that there is an overly-optimistic mentality that throws a gloss over situations making them seem more cozy than they are and making people hang around a longer than they should. When they wake up late to this a self-directed disappointment sets in, but it does so alongside a kind of respect and understanding for the other who like you was simply wanting the good times to continue, blind to the warning signs. This is the relationship that should have ended at the first breakup or the party that has gone on too long or the city that seems to have it all, but of course does not.
