About Jlin

Initially associated with Chicago's footwork scene, Jlin's music evolved far beyond that style, exploring unheard rhythms and placing her in a category of her own. Her debut album, 2015's Dark Energy, was filled with twisted, volatile tracks that seemed far more concerned with venting frustration, anger, and depression than providing dancefloor fodder. The record was an immediate, unexpected success, causing her to quit her job as a steel mill worker and pursue music full-time. One of the most acclaimed experimental electronic artists of the 2010s and 2020s, Jlin has shared the stage or collaborated with artists such as Björk, Ben Frost, and William Basinski. Additionally, she has ventured into contemporary dance, composing the music for Wayne McGregor's Autobiography, which premiered in 2017. Her EPs Embryo (2021) and Perspective (2023) contained pieces written for her collaboration with Third Coast Percussion, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
