Johnny was born near the coastal region of Alabama and spent much of his adolescent life around Mobile bay being constantly consumed by a world of music and visual arts. Fueled by his late parents who both were active in the visual arts community, at an early age Johnny was already learning his craft. This inspired him to pick up and play a variety of musical instruments throughout adolescence.. After a lengthy love affair with brass and electric guitar eventually fading, years of experimentation with computer software/synthesis have seemed to pay off.. The past several years Jitters has actively participated in the promotion of electronic music and produced several medium to small sized events in the Northern & Southern United States.. His live sets tend to cater specifically for the event, sounds range from ambient textures to dance-able rhythms and head nodding abstractions..

Johnny Jitters :: Closure EP (Aud-Art)

Johnny Jitters and fellow cohorts take Closure into these skewed directions—offering downtempo frequencies bridged across atmospheric rapids that are warm, sincere and heartfelt.
The title tracks breaks the ice with subdued layers of dust settling on pops and crackles as they swirl around delicate beat patches and classical instrumentation. Coppice Halifax produces a stripped-back facade on his “Dissipation” remix; a lava flow of thumping beats veers in the background as sheets of smoldering fluctuations take center stage in a thick fog. Phylum Sinter’s “Quicksand” remix administers darker and more direct electronic trickery; laying out a post-industrial haze of video-game contours as it injects distorted basslines and an overall fuzziness that stays its course. Thruoutin’s edit opens with a swarm of analog synths and breaks apart midway to deliver an Eastern-influenced pulse of melodic strings and subtle vocal treatments. Christmas Lights delves into shoegaze terrain—the production resembling the strengths of Yo La Tengo and/or Solvent at moments. Nonimx’s closure sees this remix single dipping further into an abyss of Hermann & Kleine inspired percussive beauty. Perhaps the finest of the lot, Nonimx’s extrapolation rips the entire package to shreds in a chaotically serene way. So as these glitch-laden manifests continue to grow tentacles that are challenging to describe, Closure presents a solid collection of leftfield ventures that form a hearty soup of instrumental ambient-shoegaze.
News: Thruoutin’s U.S. Release, and more!

But after a few stellar examples, including thruoutin/???/Brad, I’m no longer as wary. And people around the world are getting into this too, including Pittsburgh-based electronic artist Johnny Jitters. He’s released an instrumental single called “Closure” and invited a bunch of artists to remix it, one of those artists being Beijing’s very own thruoutin. You can find the track at Bandcamp, along with the others, and it’s well worth a listen to. The pipa and Brad’s subtle vocals add something that just isn’t there in the other remixes.
Brad’s going overseas in March, to do a little tour of the U.S., but he’ll be back Beijing-side soon, working up to a release all of his own, as well as getting the jingweir zine up and running, and of course some Super Secret Awesome stuff that I just can’t tell you about yet. But don’t worry, it’ll be awesome.

Both established artists in their own right, Mediumship is an interesting listen as it dives into 8-bit electro extractions and experimental fractures of soundtrack delights.
“A New World” freezes and thaws its electrical conduits to reveal ambient debris as it merges a wide spectrum of frequency bending. Elsewhere you’ll digest soundtracks to imaginary video games reminiscent of early-era Kracfive inhabitants such as Colongib and Pacman. Essential digital-funk that takes on various transformations is featured on the out-of-nowhere dub-techno of “Amphibious Shapeshift.” The most mechanical of the lot comes in the form of the Phoenecia-inspired minimal 8-bit electro of “Astral Ghosts.”
In summary, Seesound is a well-crafted collaboration that focuses on the sound of pixels raining on marching robots. Their mechanical strands of experimental data is carefully thought-out and engaging. Mediumship is simply an intergalactic vehicle for the duo as it steers through melodic spaces of precision electronics with a flare for retrograded 8-bit electro-techno.
