Crash Symbols:

"Hitherto is our second release with Montreal beatmaker Spliff Jacksun and his deepest homage to Canada's second city yet, full of glistening sonic fragments and meditations. Like his first long-form album Sanctuary, Hitherto feels perched between light and dark-tinged snapshots of unearthed memories It surveys the city through the echoes of his experience, reflecting the crisp monochromatic contrast of the black and white photos he took to document the beginnings of his life in the city."

Review excerpt by The Quietus:

"On the surface, this tape's dusty, weary-eyed beats bottle a vibe of pure lethargy, painting a hazy picture of the Quebec capital. But underneath is a sound diary among the jazzy keys and liquid bass lines of a city teeming with personality. the loungey groove smeared across the twenty-four tracks, equal parts RIP-era Actress and Freestyle Fellowship, real-life events pop up. A party going on in the background of 'In the Park', or the distracting yet reassuring clatter which sounds like a poorly secured door on 'Under Shade'. The whole tape gels together into a slow-moving montage bristling with life. The steady, head-nodding momentum triggered by Spliff Jacksun's productions acting like a vessel to carry us through the pulsing soul of their surroundings.

Review excerpt by Beats Per Minute:

"Each track feels like an aural snapshot of a moment frozen in time: passing under streetlights on a winter evening, watching our reflection as we stroll past a row of windows, seeing the rain fall in sheets over the Saint Lawrence River. clattering, and expansive, these sonic photos bring us closer in our understanding of how Jacksun sees and reacts to this place. Much like chapters in a book, these tracks lead us through a narrative focused on his emotional associations, and we soon begin to see the wonder reflected in his own musical ramblings."
