Studies in contrast lead rRoxymore's sound evolution where no musical genre seems unturned – organic jazz, synthetic minimal, warm global house, distorted acoustic, soulful vocals – in a quest for deep grooves twisted from cosmic synth lines and signature samples.

From Tobago to Paris via Montpellier and on to the clubs of Berlin, rRoxymore's sonic journey travels from deft rave-culture-DJ-sampling to electroacoustic academia to hypnotic synth compositions, from a 10-minute epic debut single to a collaborative experimental reckonin. Hitting the scene in 2014 with an intrepid, bass-meets-two-bit-distortion track "Ministry of Silly Talks" – she followed up with several remixes, including one for The Knife, before choosing producer and friend Planningtorocks's label for her first EP. Feeling more at home in Berlin's electronic underground she joined forces with Planningtorock's Aquarian Jugs persona, the equally eclectic Oni Ayhun and Paula Temple's Jaguar Woman, to collectively create Decon/Recon #1: a wild, bent-techno of deep wubs, disturbed high hats and warped-jazz horns.

rRoxymore's latest solo creations take her further afield still, maintaining an experimental club ethos by embedding minimal noise washes, organic glitches and vocal expressions within disorienting but contagious beats.
