Profile:Releasing underground music in Florida under various names since the 90's, the death-defying descent into the electronic abyss as Johan Ess began in 2003, partially to rail against the fearful repression of that egregious era while simultaneously exploring the glitchy swag future using a laptop time machine. Since then, several albums have been released, the most recent being the LP vltrahex (2012). Earlier works include the albums Synergy Latte (2009) and Govern Yourself Accordingly (2007). Johan Ess has been interviewed by entities such as the popular electronic music radio show Solipsistic Nation along with airplay on several radio stations, including Atlanta’s WREK and Glitch.FM.
They have also appeared on stage as a salacious provocateur at events throughout the United States for years, such as Extreme Futurist Festival, The Fest, and Feathers Music Conference, along with electrifying performances at popular venues such as The Orange Peel and a longstanding weekly local DJ residency at Club Remix. They have also shared the stage with artists such as Hanin Elias (from Atari Teenage Riot) and Otto von Schirach, along with many other talented performers. Each show is intended to create maximum orgasm within the minds of audience members. They continue to strive for an esoteric form of world shaping using evolving currents of sound, wit, and illusion.
Sounds Like:Seducing eardrums with hard beats, synthetic modulations and various sonic gadgetry, these spine shattering blast waves keep the floor grinding with esoteric themes for a new generation of freaks.
