Chi è Jeremy Kolosine?
Jeremy Kolosine, aka Ksine, was born in Hackney, East London, moved to South Florida in the 1970’s and is currently living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Jeremy is an electronic artist/producer/gearhead and is founder of electropunk pioneers Futurisk, 8-bit/micro-chipmusic vanguards 8-Bit Operators and electronic guitar band Shakespace. From 2003 thru 2011 he recorded as RECEPTORS.
Exemplifying a longtime experimental hardware electro ideal, Receptors stood equipped with everything from vintage analog synths and treated guitars to lo-bit digital handheld synths (mostly Game Boy & Nintendo DS), occasional circuit-bent devices, and vocoded 12-bit stylophonic walkstations. The debut Receptors 7” EP “Controller Array” was released in 2005.
Receptors performed at NYC’s legendary Blip Fest, CMJ and Bent Festivals, showcased at Austin, Texas’ SXSW Festival and Iceland’s Airwaves Fest, and in 2007 Jeremy Kolosine performed the first ever circuit-bent performance with a full symphony orchestra (The Roanoke Symphony).
That same year the critically acclaimed ReceptorsMusic compilation “8-Bit Operators - The Music of Kraftwerk” was released on Astralwerks/EMI, and The DFA’s James Murphy commissioned Receptors to produce a set of unique Real ringtones for LCD Soundsystem’s “Sound Of Silver” album release. The ringtunes , which are re-interpretations of all 9 tracks on the hit album, were arranged and created in 8-bit fashion on the gameboy synth.
In 2008 Receptors released 2 albums of tracks produced on the Nintendo DS, including the first full-length release by an artist on the Korg DS-10 titled “groKwork”.
In 2009, Jeremy completed construction on “21st Century Retro-Futurists”, an ongoing audio/video installation for The Taubman Museum, and joined the Blip Fest Europe/ 8bitpeoples tour of Denmark and Poland (Era New Horizon Film Festival.)
On 09/09/09 the Kolosine-curated 8-Bit Operators’ “WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD” Beatles Tribute was released, and is now available at http://8bitops.com/
Receptors closed out 2009 with the release of the “USER Deluxe EP” on the world-renowned chip-music label 8bitpeoples.
In 2010, the 30th Anniversary vinyl 12inch of Futurisk’s “PLAYER PIANO LP” was released on Minimal Wave Records, and Receptors’ full-length SLEEPER CD was released on the Handheld Heroes label. http://receptorsmusic.com/
In 2011, Futurisk’s ” Lonely Streets Remixes” with remixed tracks by Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle,Chris & Cosey), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Prince Language (DFA, Editions Disco) and Complexxion from the UK.
On 12/12/2012 Receptors Music Inc released the 8-BIT OPERATORS’ DEVO Tribute: Crack That Chip! conceived/ compiled by Kolosine.
In 2013, Jeremy Kolosine was added to Marty Thau’s legendary Red Star Records roster of artists (which includes work by Suicide, Blondie, John Cale, The Ramones, Richard Hell, Lola Dutronic and Dub Gabriel among many others.) Exclusive remixes of Futurisk and 8-Bit Operators were included on the “Variations” 2013 Red Star release.
2014 promises an increase in visibility and distribution of Kolosine’s Receptors Music Inc label, with the release of 8-Bit Operators’ Depeche Mode Tribute, “Enjoy The Science”, as well as the anticipated completion of a Jeremy Kolosine solo release.
