2018 repress, mastered and cut by Matt Colton, artwork by Pan Daijing. "Much anticipated and tipped debut LP from JASSS; a measured, rugged blend of industrial dub, African and dark jazz inspirations that comes highly recommended if you're into more abstracted and experimental electronic/dancefloor excursions or the work of Christoph De Babalon, Toresch, Mecanica Popular, Throbbing Gristle etc. Jasss makes her head and body-turning album debut with Weightless, an absorbingly stark and spiky set of productions following a trio of acclaimed 12"s for Berlin's Mannequin and Amir Alexander's Annunaki Cartel since 2016. Her full length debut has allowed Jasss room to consolidate and expand her grizzled dancefloor structures to a full length episode that brutally dovetails with Joachim Nordwall and co's unforgiving but compelling take on contemporary noise and industrial musics. Very much an antecedent of Spanish industrialists such as Diseño Corbusier, Xeerox / Krishna Goineau, or Mecanica Popular/Randomize, Jasss firmly builds on that heritage with a uniquely pensive balance of percussive suss, synthetic bite and reverberating spatial dynamics that makes her music heavy-as-sin and deliciously deft with it, patently forgoing Industrial music's angry guy glare in favour of far more feminine and latinate pressure systems."
