JASSS (ES)

JASSS (S. Jiménez Alvarez) is a sound artist and producer born and raised on the northern coast of Spain, where jazz, African, and South American rhythms became some of the first and most formative influences of her life. In constant discord with the cultural and social norms, she found solace in landscapes of sound. After moving to the Netherlands in 2010, she began working with field recordings and electronic music. A 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 distinct, eclectic style that would become her signature approach.

JASSS’s first record, Caja Negra EP, was released by the American label Anunnaki Cartel in early 2016. Later that year she released her second EP, Mother, on Mannequin Records. Her first solo LP, Weightless, is to be released on iDEAL recordings and marks a breakthrough of her exploration in electro-acoustic sound and audiovisual performance.
