Exuding an unclassifiable aesthetic of daredevil, drum-led electronics, the prolific Jlin has continually demonstrated a yearning to break free from the conventions of footwork.

Propulsive yet cinematic, Jlin’s sample-free music isn’t all about the body; it’s as much about the heart-bound mind and its shadowy crevices.
