JAKI presents upsammy, Kinzua & Marijana und Lucas Croon
As electricity blossoms and leafs glisten, upsammy creates interpretative space, cleverly paradoxical in its concurrent comfort and desolation. With a keen ear for crystalline melody and intricate rhythm, her music sculpts a certain perpetuity and spatiality, sliding across tempo scales, while retaining an organic touch as a gentle hum of nature digitized. Often working together with visual artist Sjoerd Martens during their live show, the two create kaleidoscopic terrains built from micro textures and field recordings, fluidly mixing between inner and outer environments.
Guided by an adventurous and narrative approach, this vividness is present in her DJ sets as well. The music she playstakes cues from trippy electronics, the more experimental side of DnB and oddball techno, but tries to avoid clear genres. As a DJ she consolidated a firm position in the contemporary leftfield music world, which includes a residency at NTS Radio and Amsterdam club Garage Noord and invitations to festivals such as Unsound and Rewire
