The best kept secret in music


"We Bore 2"

....if only to hear (the Square Root of Evil remix of) Nelly's "Hot in Herre" dissected into a pounding, unrecognizable four-to-the floor glitch-techno stomper, We Bore 2 is definitely worth investigation. - Grooves Magazine Issue 13

"We Bore 2"

...there's amusement to be had listening to the Emanon's sutured techno polka version of the Happy Days theme and the Square Root of Evil's drum 'n' crash send-up of Nelly's "Hot in Herre." We Bore 2 is many things- snide, loveable, at times ear-shattering- but it's never boring. - XLR8R March 2004

Feeling a bit camera shy


The Square Root of Evil (aka Jen) is an electronic musician from Vancouver, Canada. While studying communications at university, Jen was introduced to electronic music production, discovering she could make all the strange noises that she loved into music. Since then, SROE has appeared on compilations in Canada, the US and the UK, has a netlabel release on Belladonna Records and has another EP in the works. On average she plays live shows monthly, regularly in Vancouver and with several in the US and the UK. Besides making music and editing videos, short films and television programs, she runs 2 internet radio stations, promotes shows in Vancouver and has been an active member of the online electronic music community since 1996.

Square Root of Evil music has elements of drum n bass, breakcore, techno and glitch, with bleeps and bloops from old video games and ample weirdness thrown into the mix, usually in the form of a silly melody. She leans towards frantic & somewhat complex rhythms made with crunchy low-fi sounds, and tries to make people smile while they dance .
