John Frusciante releases the first instrumental electronic album under his own name on Aaron Funks Timesig label. The record is dedicated to his cat Maya who recently passed away, a fellow traveller in his otherwise solitary music making sessions. Maya is inspired by Johns favourite music: 91 to96 UK breakbeat hardcore and jungle. It's a varied and personal take with sophisticated, authentic production balanced against John's acute sense of melody, an inspired blending of machines and samples infused with a joyful energy. "I dont have that interest in singing or writing lyrics like I used to. The natural thing when Im by myself now, is to just make music like the stuff being released this year. I really love the back and forth with machines and the computer." The fun he's having on Maya is infectious.
