JASSS [Mannequin Rec. / ESP]
JASSS (S. Jiménez Alvarez) is a sound artist and producer born and raised on the northern coast of Spain. Her parents, were very passionate about jazz, african and Southamerican rhythms, one of the first and strongest influences in her life.
Her stubborn focus on the nature and sociologic aspects of sound and music, from an early age, provided the right conditions for opening to new and unknown landscapes in art and sound.
In 2015, she made her first appearances, as a DJ, playing records, recording mixes for radio shows as well as other platforms, with a quite distinctive eclecticism that afterwards would become her signature style.
After a few years of studio work and self training, her first 12 inche, Caja Negra ep, was released on the american label Anunnaki Cartel. In the same year, her second record, Mother, was released on the Italian label Mannequin Records, as the first of 2 vinyls for the series Death of the Machines.Much more focused on the experimentation with sound and spaces, she currently works in several projects, including electroacoustic pieces, live and Audio Visual performances. Her first solo album, Weightless, will be released in 2017 on the Swedish label iDEAL Recordings.
