As electricity blossoms and leafs glisten, upsammy creates interpretative space, cleverly paradoxical in its concurrent comfort and desolation.
With a keen ear for crystalline melody and intricate rhythm, her music takes cues from electro and IDM, breathing a certain perpetuity and spatiality, sliding across tempo scales, while retaining an organic touch as a gentle hum of nature digitised. Guided by an adventurous and narrative approach, this vividness is present in her DJ sets as well.
Torsing lives and works in Amsterdam.
