Warpaint’s Emily Kokal Joins j.franxis’ deafmute On Stage At Love You Down Check Out Our Photos Of Deafmute's Performance At The Echoplex
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The first act we were able to catch on the Echoplex stage was deafmute, the musical project of LA-based producer j.franxis. It was my first time see this act perform and I was pretty hypnotized. With the room drenched in a dark blue light, j.franxis’ synth sonics overwhelmed your senses. His casual vocals floated over the at times frenetic synth work that he was playing; perfect contrast in sonic elements that worked like a yin and yang.
Had I known that he had previously recorded music with Warpaint’s Emily Kokal (“Fortitude”), I would have anticipated her joining him on stage at some point during his performance. Needless to say, I was surprised when she joined him on stage to perform the same. j.franxis gave a few minutes of his set-time to Emily to [I think] let her debut a new song that she had been working on. I wish I could have found a clip of that song online to confirm the foregoing statement, so if anybody could confirm that for us that’d be great!..”
