jump/cut covers a lot of sonic territory built on the electronica aesthetic while moving their vibe towards organic sound creation with vibrant effects and eclectic samples. their "organic electronica" melds a continuum spanning styles from drum n' bass, downtempo, breakbeat, ambient, dub, trip-hop and even modern jazz compositional ideas. the goal is to ignite live elements of electronica music that are usually lost in a robotic technical execution by creating interactive melodic atmospheres, deep oscillating bass lines and pulsating backbeat drums.
"jump/cut's soft and slightly experimental electronica starts with a jazz base mixed with more chilled beats and repetitive but compelling short note progressions ... constructed with ambient sensibilities punctuated dischordant interjections and way downtempo beats ... jump/cut's restrained but adventurous jazzbient, downbeated sounds are captivating and generate a mood that can be used for everything from relaxation to meditation to nighttime sexiness."
