1. Escaping everyday life.

    You might know the feeling: you wake up and a very short moment in time you realize absolutely nothing. Then suddenly reality fades in and you realize what day it is, whether you are alone, what time it is, what's on your agenda... For a moment you escaped it all.

    When I compose music I try to stray into a thoughtless state, from where I come in contact with my dreams and adventures. The space where my memories and my desires merge. Freedom, nature, romance or the solitude and the night. Like in the movie "Drive": alone on an empty highway with the rhythm of movement. Or together in breathtaking New Zealand enjoying the unreal landscapes...

    The thoughts give way to images. The images and feelings I translate into music. I channel what comes to me: like a waterfall that falls naturally, unstoppable.

    Lyrics

    A waterfall
    A waterfall

    The things I feel, The sounds I hear
    How clear I see, I feel no fear
    I let myself just fall in love

    A waterfall
    and down she goes

    This is the night hour
    This is the night hour

    A waterfall
    and down she goes

    We’re laying here just holding hands
    The storm has ended
    Beneath the stars our lips are sealed
    Your breath moves through me

  2. A Dutch winter landscape. Filmed from the car while gazing at the white meadows. An enchanting and unique view captured in the moment. Accompanied by a signature style Jap Jap ambient electronica composition that emphasizes the movement and visual rhythms. A dreamlike video clip that evokes an awareness or realization that unfolding melodies can be found all around us. Always...

    Brim Liski emerged organically from the long-distance friendship and collaboration between producers Ryan Policky (from A Shoreline Dream) and Justin Gitlin (Cacheflowe) in the U.S. and Jasper Boer (Jap Jap) from the Netherlands. They have put together a self-titled EP for digital release.

    At first listen, it's easy to hear equal parts shoegaze and electronic influences, calling to mind an icy musical child from acts like Depeche Mode & Massive Attack. Imagine a treacherous night trek through an arctic setting, then soundtrack it with these four minutes. It's dark. It's atmospheric. It's beautiful. Listen for yourself and check out the Brim Liski EP digitally from http://japjap.net/releases/brim-liski

  4. Agua, luz, chorros, colores, atomizadores, conjugados con los ambientes sonoros de Jap Jap, son los elementos que hemos utilizado para crear este nuevo vídeo, en el que las texturas de vídeo y las sonoras se entremezclan sincrónicamente en un nuevo trabajo en el que partimos de imágenes rodadas en la Fuente mágica de Montjuic en Barcelona, y en el que buscamos crear un resultado totalmente sincronizado con el tema musical, y a su vez, descomponer las imágenes hasta casi perder la referencia con la fuente original.
    Con este nuevo trabajo alcanzamos ya los 10 iconoscopios, esperamos que os guste.

  5. All The Things is about a longing for the past. Remembering lost love. In pain Jap Jap looks back to a perfect summer afternoon; a breeze full of magical attraction. The day she came into his life everything changed; she brought happiness, she brought hope, she brought contentment. What they shared seems like a perfect dream, a dance through the happiness that shines in our eyes.

    "And though she cannot be here at my side, it’s comforting to have these memories in my mind. I know that summer sang in me a little while, that in me sings no more..."
