Jlin

Biography

Jlin (Jerrilynn Patton) is an electronic musician from Gary, Indiana. Initially associated with Chicago’s footwork scene, her music evolved far beyond that style, exploring unheard rhythms and placing her in a category of her own. Her debut album “Dark Energy” is filled to the brim with dramatic tracks bursting with force, with dense rhythmic patterns and tension that overwhelm the listener. The album quickly received critical acclaim and went on to further popularize footwork on a global stage. Her second album, “Black Origami”, featured collaborations with William Basinski, Holly Herndon, Fawkes, and Dope Saint Jude. The album was voted No. 23 in Rolling Stone’s Albums of the Year and No. 1 Best Electronic Album of the Year – beating Arca, Vince Staples and Stormzy. Jlin also composed the score for “Autobiography” by renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor that premiered at Sadler’s Wells in London, and The Music Center in Los Angeles. In addition, Jlin has been cutting her teeth as a remixer, with Bjork and Max Richter releases.
