JASSS (S. Jiménez Alvarez) is a sound artist and producer born and raised on the northern coast of spain. Jazz, african and south-american rhythms, were one of the first and formative influences of her life. In disagreement with the cultural and social norms of Spain she found solace in the unknown landscapes of sound. In her youth she was in punk and hardcore projects while developing a keen interest for industrial, dub and experimental music. In 2010, after moving to the Netherlands she began working with field recordings and electronic music. One year later in Berlin she began composing and scoring music for experimental films.
In 2015 she made her first appearance as a DJ with a quite distinctive eclectic style that would become her signature. Her first record, Caja Negra ep, was released by the american label, Anunnaki Cartel. Later in the same year she released her second EP, Mother, on Mannequin records, these were the first two records of the series titled; Death of the Machines. Her first solo upcoming release, Weightless, on iDEAL recordings, combines her interest in electroacoustic music and Audiovisual performances.
EVOL is drawing inspiration from algorithmic methods of synthesis, fractal geometry, chaotic systems and quantum theory on the one hand and “hoovers” – the trademark sound of 90′s rave music – as well as the psychedelic impact of techno on the other, EVOL (Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Stephen Sharp) have managed to bridge two seemingly different worlds, creating their very own musical idiom that they have coined “computer music for hooligans”.
Using archetypal synthesizers, programming languages and unusual sound sources such as air horns, their compositions flow across minimalist digital noise, frenzied and abstract sound collages and the dynamic acid de-compositions of their recent releases. EVOL records have been released by labels such as Mego, Diagonal, Entr’acte, Presto!? and Roc’s very own Alku and collaborators include Russell Haswell, Mark Fell and Francisco López.
Lag Os is an audiovisual project from Rubén Patiño that incorporates viscous sounds from a mysterious swamp, moving in between viscous mud, watery abstract landscapes and acidic tonalities.
