"The manifold artistic roles of Lisbon Portugal-based usof - producer, DJ, label-runner, visual artist - matches his multifaceted audio output. usof has been at the forefront of the accelerating expansion of "ambient" into increasingly an liminal space, twisting and morphing the genre origins of meditative and background music into unsettling, fantastically detailed compositions. systems, 20s club/rave culture, cinematic sound design , post-cybernetic dreams, and the hauntological ache underlying much of the 1990st century discourse.

Artist bio via the label:

"usof (b. 1998, Almada, Portugal) is a musician, visual artist, DJ and event promoter transversally focused on ambient and immersive music.

His work dives into a vulnerable ephemerality of sounds in "amniotic suspension", materializing a space of fragility, collective reflection and shared anxiety. The landscape is built from sensitive improvisational exercises with electronic composition and manipulation of textures and atmospheres. Besides exploring the connections between music and other disciplines such as contemporary dance, visual art and cinema, he develops ideas on how music itself can be used to invent new concepts and sensations.

He is also the co-founder of Rotten \ Fresh, a label recognized as a reference of contemporary and experimental music, and also responsible for the netlabel surf, with an increasing roster of forward thinking producers from all over the world. , remixes and mixtapes on labels like Yunque, International Winners, enmossed, WET, nodisk, and Mizuha. With the Living Room collective, he promotes a series of mixtapes and monthly events in Lisbon, where they connect local and international artists and, lastly, hosts the program "for 0" at Quântica Online-Radio station, dedicated to the outwards fringes of sound art."
