Why do we like this?
John Tejada is gearing up to release a new album, entitled The Predicting Machine, on September 10, 2012 via Kompact. Tejada is a DJ and producer in L.A. by way of Austria, bringing electronic beats to the world since the late 90s.

"The Function and the Form" is a nice electronic dance bit, minimally progressive and definitely on the horizontal spectrum. The notes are clear and have a definite electronic-yesteryear quality, which makes absolute sense since Tejada started releasing beats over a decade ago. Perhaps the best moment in the track occurs at around the three minute mark, when he sprinkles in some bright and shiny synth arpeggios over the main melody.

What is really grabbing about this particular track is that the title seems to be reflected within each 4:4 beat; there actually is a function and form to Tejada's production, as if he's conveying the assembly of some nebulous being.
