»In the field of chemistry, sublimation is the transition of a substance directly from the solid phase to the gas phase. Raise and transcend every encounter as something worthy of reverence and appreciation so that you can find your life worth living.«

In her new EP, Honkong-based ASJ explores emotional alienation, difference and social unity with a blistering and emotive sound palette. Moving from concrete music to ethereal singing before arriving at a hypnotically elevated plateau, ASJ considers changes of state in the field of chemistry as an analogue to moments of transcendence.

The EP »The Illusion Of Separation« will be released on the label Decisions run by Air Max ‘97 on June 12.
