New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
"JBXDR is an artist between worlds."
"JBXDR is one of the most potent new voices in Germany's electronic underground. 'Wave Talk' matches crunching beats to
searing, lazer-guided electronics, shot through with a real sense of ambition."
'Accelerate Everything' is a heartbeat soaked, toe-tapping, synth rollercoaster - whilst highlighting JBXDR extreme talent on a drum kit."
"...impressive percussive rhythms, jazz lines and ethereal vibes."
Son Of Marketing
Electronic producer and experimental drummer JBXDR has shared the video for his track 'Pocketcall'. The video was directed by Tristan Eisenbraun, whose work has been featured by the likes of MTV and Viva. JBXDR has worked alongside notable producers such as Andy Baldwin (Hidden Orchestra, Belle & Sebastian), Jeremy Loucas (Spacepilot), Diana Krall
(Order Of Canada) and Terry Lynn Carrington (Giovanni Tommaso Quintet). The artist has already seen substantial press support from Resident Advisor, Clash
Magazine, Data Transmission and Son Of Marketing, Amazing Radio
and many others. JBXDR has showcased his talent of the stages of Fringe and The Great Escape in Brighton, UK, as well as a string of German festivals including Reeperbahn Festival, Übel und Gefährlich, Hakken, Badehaus, Plötzlich am Meer, At.tension #7, LALA Festival, and Habitat Festival. He was selected by software music sequencer Ableton Live to be featured in collaboration with Mattokind for several live videos and a documentary presented on their site.
Jörn Bielfeldt is JBXDR, experimental drummer and innovative live performer. Currently residing in Berlin, Bielfeldt studied jazz drumming at the renowned Berklee College of Music
in Boston, Massachusetts. He creates original compositions, on the spot remixes, and performs every element of his sound design live. He is Managing and Artistic Director
of Papenwohld gGmbH, a non-profit organization that aims to promote artists and creative professionals providing them with a forum, a place to give their creativity free reign and an event location. Supported by Native Instruments, the venue is located on a beautiful farmstead in Schleswig-Holstein, and Bielfeldt's work there was recently documented in a short film on their website.
Citing influence from acts such as J Dilla, who inspired a wave of underground and hip-hop scene, as well as drummer, new wave and avant-garde producer Deantoni Parks (The Mars Volta, Bosnian Rainbows, ORL Projects) his sound draws parallels to that of electronic counterparts Shigeto, Teebs and Flying Lotus.
'Pocketcall' came into fruition as a hymn to Bielfeldt's partner, and this idea is continued in the video. It is an intimate window into the artist's life and renders a picture of him as a person. It shows a side of him that many would not otherwise see, while following him through early mornings, commuting, and creating. The imagery not only paints a picture of the deeper meaning of the track but also invites the viewer into the mind of Jörn Bielfeldt.
JBXDR gives some insight: "With the video for Pocketcall I tried to redefine my personal relationship with social media and in general my visual representation in the digital world. I strangely often find myself lost in the search for the 'right' content, the 'right' words or the 'right' message that truly reflects my analogue state of mind, process or emotion. I know nowadays many of us get lost in the same struggle. So I decided to push myself to try something new and show the most intimate parts of my personal life - my relationship to my partner, my homes and the daily search to find the balance between life and all my goals, interests and dreams."
