Island Fox bio:
Refreshing, individual, and distinct. Island Fox is the genreless project of Jess Bartlet (b.1990). On her Comrade EP, Jess innovates lo-fi bedroom beat aesthetics with her wildly vivid imagination. As a prolific DIY artist Jess writes, produces, and now mixes all of her own material. A regular attendee of Red Bull’s monthly engineering events; (titled Normal Not Novelty) it was here she met mix-engineer Marta Salogni (Björk, Frank Ocean, M.I.A) whom she recently shadowed.
Jess has a renaissance approach to her art & has a hand in all of her art-direction. A self-professed naturalist, scientist, and all round geek (with a particular interest in fantasy, sci-fi, and gaming) Jess’ inspiration first and foremost stems always from following her curiosity. And, out of this comes her playful and experimental approach to producing and mixing.
On the Comrade EP we foray into the exciting new world of genreless organic dub. This project is far more live than Jess’ previous work. We explore the biological diorama, and time-lapse into growth within a rich deciduous forest. Discover what waits upon a days listening, as the nature is relatively endless, and untouched. “Comrade” is a bright, and colourful garden filled with life and contentment.
