Bristol-based organisation Saffron has revealed details of its second annual 7 Days Of Sound event, designed to connect people of marginalised genders (trans and cis women, as well as all trans and non-binary people) in music tech.
After launching in 2021, 7 Days Of Sound will return this month, with a series of workshops that will look at include tech training and career advice and aim to cater to varying backgrounds, genres and levels of experience.
Jlin has announced a new EP, 'Embryo', which will drop on 10th December via Planet Mu. You can hear the title track below.
Comprising four-tracks, the release marks a shift in direction for the producer, who veers into mutant techno territory with a retro-futurist undercurrent.
New music from the likes of SOPHIE, Jlin and Slikback will feature on a brand new compilation from Unsound.
Last year, amid the coronavirus pandemic, the 18th edition of Poland's Unsound festival, which is usually held annualy in Kraków, moved online for its 2020 Unsound Intermission edition, presenting an array of immersive content across 11 days.
SOPHIE and Jlin are the latest additions to the lineup for the New York edition of Unsound on 23rd November.
Unsound New York will take place on 22nd November with a free opening concert at St Peter's Church, Chelsea, and then the full event on 23rd November at Knockdown Centre.
The new additions come after the news that Amnesia Scanner have had to pull out of their scheduled performance.
The Knockdown Centre show will run from 8pm to 2am and you can see the full lineup below:
Planet Mu's Jlin has contributed ten original tracks for a new video game, Songs Of The Lost.
Created by Canadian designer Paloma Dawkins for Manchester International Festival (MIF), the electronic producer and composer is one of eight collaborators.
The game itself is described as a "magical-realist game odyssey through a surreal and absurd digital landscape", and is the second game commissioned for MIF. The first, Lost Memories Dot Net, was premiered at 2017's MIF, and soundtracked by Nat Ćmiel under her dream-pop Yeule alias.
Planet Mu has announced the debut album from DJ Mag Best of British Breakthrough Producer nominee Rian Treanor, ‘ATAXIA', which will land on 15th March.
The title translates as 'the loss of full control of bodily movements' in non-neurological terms. Whether the record should come with a warning isn't clear, but either way we've been told to expect shades of experimental industrial, synth-pop, speed garage and plenty more left-of-the-middle computer sounds when it arrives.
Electronic luminaries Holly Herndon and Jlin have created a new track ‘Godmother’, out now on 4AD, completely via an AI program called Spawn.
Spawn was created over the course of two years by Herndon and Mat Dryhurst. Producing the track entirely via machine learning, Spawn repeatedly listened to recent DJ Mag interviewee Jlin’s work and tried to replicate it with Herndon’s voice.
"I’m sorry that this is rambled as shit, I’m in the middle of running around and getting ready to go to Whole Foods for my mom.” Jerrilyn Patton is apologising via speakerphone from her car as she drives down one of her hometown roads in Gary, Indiana. Known to most as Jlin, a producer with a proclivity for intricate, metallic, thrilling electronics shrouded in a crepuscular sense of enigma, it’s more than a little surprising (if not totally jarring) hearing her talking about something quite so ordinary and mundane as going grocery shopping.
