SOPHIE and Jlin collaborated on a track for Unsound Festival’s new album


The pair worked together on the track JSLOIPNHIE.

Unsound Festival has announced a new album and book, titled Intermission. The project is linked to the event’s 2020 edition, which has been rescheduled to March 2021. It’s also dedicated to SOPHIE, who recently passed away following a sudden accident. Inspired by the pandemic, the compilation focuses on collaboration and sees a number of artists on the line-up link up for new works.

One of the most notable highlights on the tracklist is JSLOIPNHIE, a collaboration between Jlin and SOPHIE. Weavings – Section 1 is an 11-minute piece conceived, curated and mixed by Nicolas Jaar. It features Laraaji, Aho Ssan, Angel Bat Dawid, Dirar Kalash, Ellen Fullman, Księżyc, Paweł Szamburski and more.

DeForrest Brown Jr. and James Hoff have linked up for the piece Project for Revolution in New York, which is made up of field recordings from BLM protests. Moor Mother has joined forces with Geng for This Week (again).

As for individual tracks on the release, Slikback has contributed ZETSUBO, and there’s also SVBKVLT’s 33EMYBW with The Room. Listen below.

The book is a collection of memoirs, critical texts and poems exploring a wide range of topics: from lockdown to ecology, mental health to conspiracy theories and racism to LGBTQ+ rights.
