JOIX is an experienced Deep Techno Producer & Liveact Performer from Mannheim (near Heidelberg, Frankfurt), Germany, originally from Berlin.
His onstage history exceeds 20 years (spanning from raves to clubs like the Tresor in Berlin and radio stations like Evosonic) and for quite a while he co-organized legendary events
such as the "Harlequins Castle" festivals in the rural woodlands of Southern Germany.
Another highlight was his JAPAN TOUR in August 2014.
His sound is deeply influenced by electronic music from Detroit, Berlin and Frankfurt and can mostly be descriped as Deep Techno with phat basslines, strange soundscapes and drifty beats.
He prefers to make music with an analog modular system (Doepfer A-100), analog synthesizers, drum machines and didgeridoo.
His tracks were released on several net labels all over the world:
Lethal Dose Recordings
JOIX also likes to use spoken texts from books and movies of the genres SCI-FI and MYTH e.g.
Dune (Frank Herbert),
2001: A Space Odyssey (Arthur C. Clarke),
Kybalion (unknown authors),
Solaris (Stanislaw Lem) or the
Cthulhu mythos (H.P. Lovecraft).
Enjoy the sound of JOIX! :-)
