Autumn 2001:
Right between robotic rhythms and colourful melancholia sits Jason Amm aka Solvent, surrounded by his numerous analogue synthesizers and other technical devices having come all the way from zimbabwe, where he was born in 1972, to canada, where he now lives and works. He listened to all the right eighties pop records and to one or the other rephlex release causing him to dedicate his artistic existence to them and build a whole career on them. Not without putting his personal touch on them, of course.
His first album was released in 1998, Morr Music's "Solvent City" is his third full length. Looking at the amount of compilations Mr. Amm contributed his bouncing babies to, he always seems to have at least one of these wonderful melodies going around in his head.
Together with friend and ally Gregory de Rocher aka Lowfish he is the founder of Suction Records, where his own special vision of robot music finds the right outlet. Apart from releasing their own stuff, they also have a lot of robot friends like Skanfrom, David Kristian, Pluxus, as well as GD Luxxe most recently on their label. Isan and Lali Puna were happy to involve themselves by doing remixes.
Next up will be Tape Recordings, a new sublabel, that will specialize in re-releasing obscure gems of early 80s electro-trash no one's ever heard of.
