JOIX is a deep Techno producer / liveact performer from Mannheim (near Heidelberg), Germany, originally from Berlin. One of his distinctive features is the usage of dynamic audio signals instead of looped samples. He generates them by himself in his studio with his analog modular synthesizer, and the irregular voltage levels inside the analog gear give his tunes and liveact performances a very own, dynamic, voluminous and warm depth. Also he uses a Didgeridoo and Facebass.
His onstage history exceeds 15 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.
His solo release career started comparatively late. He self-published one CD album in 1998 and one vinyl single together with his back then studio / liveact partners of “Der 7. Weg” under the “Harlequins Universe” crew flag in 2003 and after that pretty much disappeared for half a decade to focus on building his studio and further developing his own sound. Then in 2010 he released his first solo tune on a free download compilation, two remixes on Electrogravity in 2010 and 2011, his debut album “Random Control” on LCR Records in 2012, also 3 EPs and a handful of compilation features on Anecdote, Plastiq, LW Recordings, Electrogravity and LCR in the same year. Now in 2013 he has another EP forthcoming on plunk! in April, the same day he performs live at a Techno Liveact Special of an audiophile Drum & Bass event series in his home town Mannheim (which he also co-founded in 2012, following his album release party); two weeks after that comes his next live appearance in the hottest club in town and other than that he just keeps making tunes.
