Info & tracklist 

Jamaica Suk [Face II Face – Berlin, DE]

Originally from Northern California, Jamaica’s electronic experience became her identity while exploring the sounds of San Francisco. It was during this time that she began to organize underground music events, landed DJ residencies, and enrolled in audio engineering school. Shortly after her degree, she offed to Europe; hungry for musical inspiration. A haphazard trip to Berlin changed everything for the young artist. She fell in love with the energy of the city & its seasoned club culture.

After setting up home base in Berlin, Jamaica worked intently on building an audio production suite with proper acoustics and production tools. This would become the laboratory where her production work would blossom. Fusing her musical roots in jazz and rock, she synthesizes these elements effortlessly. The end result is an impressionistic sound scape and sonic experience for the body and soul, also sharing the ideals of techno pioneers and purists who came before her.

Already respected among her peers in the industry as a talented solo producer, Jamaica has successful releases including the debut Spektrum EP, and a compilation on Face to Face Recordings featuring a remix of her track Qurated, by Echoplex. Paying homage to her Bay Area roots, she is also featured on the 12” compilation Feral Cuts on Bad Animal.
