Bio:

Joerg Jochims aka JOIX was born in Berlin in 1977. He moved to a village near Heidelberg at the tender age of three. It was in the early 90s when he heard the first Sets from DJs of the up coming techno scene at hr3's Saturday nights Radio show Clubnight. He was captured by this new world of sounds. This attraction made him finally start off with the creation of his own electronic sounds in 1996. This was the beginning of his career as producer and liveact of electronic music. JOIX who is now based at the industrial town Mannheim, collected experience as liveact when was part of "Der 7. Weg". From 1997 till 2003 he performed live at Clubs like the Tresor in Berlin, underground Raves like Harlequins Castle and on radio stations like Evosonic. All this led to the release of diverse performances published on vinyl as well as CD. His style is mainly influenced by electronic music from Detroit, Berlin and Frankfurt. Characteristic for his deep and impulsive Techno are phat bass lines, strange soundscapes and drifty beats. The deepness of his tracks unfolds its effect mainly on the dark dance floor, but is complex enough to be thrilling on your home hi-fi as well. JOIX generates most of the sounds on his analog-modular-synthesizer. This combined with the absence of any bought sample libraries or presets, confronts the listener with an extraordinary, overwhelming and unusual interpretation of electronic music. The audible and perceptible presence of analog sounds is the key to JOIX's music. This is expressed by voluminous, wide, powerful and embracing sounds which are often differentiated and warm at the same time. Distinctive subliminal random effects are creating unique live-lines due to irregular voltage levels inside the analog technical equipment. His debut album RANDOM CONTROL represents the essence of JOIX's studio works and live performances of the last years.
