Jon Convex:  “I never set out to write a specific style; after making music for so many years, you don’t really think about what you're doing. It’s never a conscious process, it’s all very natural and it’s only when I listen back to something I’ve done, I can hear what might have influenced it. I wouldn’t say "who" are the influences behind the Convex sound - it’s more "what.” I’ve fine tuned what outboard I needed, and what effects and dynamics I wanted to use to shape the sound.” -Jon Convex Damon Kirkham, aka Jon Convex, has a most unique ability to continually re-shape sounds, time and time again. Gripped by music from a young age, he first began producing when he was 17, completely intrigued by analogue machines. Many years and many metamorphoses later, his passion and talents are demonstrated through his successes as 1/2 of Instra:mental (with Al Green, aka Boddika), whose body of work as a production duo and label A&R’s is truly beyond conventional description. Originally known for their innovative take on the Drum & Bass sound, Instra:mental has since forged to become scene leaders, and key tastemakers, throughout various branches in electronic music. Their Nonplus+ imprint has revived the concept of experimentalism, embracing artists from all genres imaginable, and taking electronic music production into several new directions. With Jon Convex, the name behind his latest sonic explorations, music transforms into surreal soundscapes, and takes the listener to another place, somewhere deep within his imagination. Images of dystopian cities and futuristic landscapes are fuelled by his intricate, layered productions, with finely tuned melodies and intense drum workouts. Letting the machines guide him, he creates entirely unique analogue platforms, whether with a sublime atmospheric nod to Warp’s early back catalogue, or with a slight tinge of Chicago’s raw, percussive footwork sound, or with the tough, tearing feel of techno: all-out dancefloor assault. Jon Convex stands as an exciting embodiment of the state of electronic music today: no longer confined by genres whatsoever, producers can allow their creativity to take over with no boundaries. Putting aside hype, and surpassing all expectations, each Convex production is as individual and surprising as the last. “With the solo stuff it’s very different, it’s a different process. There’s no compromise in the way I work and sounds I use now, it’s fully what I want to do and use. I can get lost in a process for hours and the only time its burning is my own.”
