Electric Djinn is the part musical, part performance art project of Neptune Sweet, a new age artist who is based in New York, but derives influence from the many corners of her ever-expanding earth. For Neptune, Electric Djinn is a creative outlet for finding a balance between new age sound and the chaotic order of the world as she sees it. The interplay between these two elements and the incorporation of a holistic approach to music gives Electric Djinn its unique and striking sound; grounded in low frequencies, programmed beats, topped with virtual synths and processed vocals, layered in binaural beats, isochronic tones, and the sweet smell of the oceanic.
A recent residency in Baler, Aurora of the Philippines gave rise to a number of different recordings for Neptune, as well as generated a lasting love of surfing liquid and sonic waves. While Neptune returns regularly to the Philippines to perform live and work with local artists, she also has weaved from her time there a collective tapestry of sonic landscapes that are captured in her recorded work. This can be seen in the video for “Deer X-ing,” a labor of love that took a year to bring to full completion and brought together the creative minds of Larilyn Sanchez, Vandana Jane and Sarah Kipp, who worked with Neptune to bring her vision into reality.
The strange journey seen in the video for “Deer X-ing” is only the beginning of the sonic and creative exploration that Electric Djinn has set out upon. Neptune looks to the future for more chances to move her art into as many spaces as possible–be it performance, videos, or a collection of recordings.
