The friendship with Jason Lanox and HENK goes way back into the early days when we started holding parties on an old shipyard in Amsterdam. From the first moment HENK was captured by the productions of Jason Lanox. HENK followed him closely and saw him grow as a person, producer and performer. The first album ”Burning Every Bridge That I Cross To Find Some Beautiful Place To Get Lost’’ was the reason to finally realize the long kept ambition to start HENK recordings.
Against all new digital trends, HENK deceided to honour this impressive productional superiority with a classic vinyl press. The last couples of months we have worked with a great team of artists, technicians and friends to fine tune this double 12 inch masterpiece which will be in the shops from 15th of march 2012.
This concept album represents a turbulent period in Jason’s life, which he describes as one endless night full of story’s, people and experiences. With this record he gives you a personal invitation to his musical dairy. Wipe the dust off your record players and get caught up with his amazing cinematic tracks, which have a perfect balance between an intense deep listening experience and on the other side a melodic techno drive which we all know from his energetic live performance.
Jason about his first release:
”There was a period in my life where I traded the days with nights. It’s hard to separate all those nights in my memory, so thinking back to this period, it feels like one endless night full of story’s, people and experiences.
It was in this period that this album was created, although I didn’t know then that it would become an album. I was simply using music to express and register my feelings and story’s. Kind of like a musical diary, I naturally just felt the urge to do that.
In those nights, full of story’s, there is love, depression, friendship, crazy conversations, losing myself, druggy-trips, destruction, party’s, after-party’s and in the end: finding myself, learning who I am, what is right and what is wrong and making the transition to balance and see the beauty of it all.
The title of the album ‘Burning Every Bridge That I Cross, To Find Some Beautiful Place To Get Lost’ explains the concept that when you get lost there is never a way back but a path which leads to finding something beautiful.
I created a story of one night that represents this period in the form of an album. When the album starts the night falls, and when the album finishes, it is morning. Making this a concept album telling a story within a story.’’
