About Tomas Jirku & Robin Judge

Using only beats and rhythms to create textures, Tomas Jirku uses few materials to create his minimalist approach to techno. Though his background is in industrial music first, he turned to electronic after being introduced to its early British days. Though he resides in Canada, Jirku is originally from the Czech republic and has absolutely no musical background. With this in mind, there are no melodies in any of Jirku's work, just layers of electronic beats. His first album, Varients, came via Alien8Recordings. The second full-length album, Sequins, was released through the more well-known minimal label Force Inc. in late 2000. ~ Diana Potts
