(Semantica Records, Avian)
Joining the dots between heads down, high energy Techno & caustic, wide-angle atmospherics via slick percussive motifs with a razor-sharp sheen - Emily Jeanne has spent the last few years developing a unique voice as both a DJ and producer.
The Belgian artist, who spent her formative years between Vietnam and Ghent honing her craft as a selector, has worked tirelessly to carve out a sonic space that exists in equal parts as an homage to the reduced purism of the progenitors of the genre, as it does a harsh light looking forward to pastures new.
As a producer, an invigorating sense of restraint and a keen ear for
balanced, dynamic composition has seen ample returns as the
artist’s body of work begins to manifest itself across the
contemporary leftfield dance music landscape. Appearances on
ANGLS Records alongside a host of industry heavyweights,
including Surgeon & Oscar Mulero, Planetary Assault Systems and
more - as well as the VOLTAGE Imprint & vurt (Seoul) compilations
make way for a larger outing Public By Default released last year
via Svreca’s legendary Semantica imprint.
Slick, tempered and finely tuned, the extended EP works as something of a manifesto for the Belgian artist’s work - placing the emphasis on craft & nuance it’s a bold mission statement that depicts a refreshing raison d’etre from an exciting artist ready to embark on the next stage of their career.
