Aches is twenty-four year old producer and visual artist Jonny Fox from Sheffield UK currently based in Bratislava, Slovakia. His recently released debut EP (via Exitab) brims with melancholic guitar sketches, compressed artifacts, ambient textures and breathing percussion which teams with the rhythms of UK garage and spacey Jungle; Whispers are skewed, embedded in the ambiance, fading in hazy dense textures.
The EP ‘Fine Tongue’ and the sub sequential live performances are dreamy yet biting; Influenced on the one hand by UK club sounds like Instru:mental or the more experimental Mount Kimbie; Aches’ condensed complex structures crash with the schizophrenic attitude of Clark and flow with the emotional gravity and storytelling of Mogwai, or GSYBE.
