Biography

Revolution Void is the electronic-jazz music project of 24-year-old DJ and producer Jonah Dempcy.

Jonah began Revolution Void back in 1996 at the age of 12. The initial sound of Revolution Void was funky breaks and bigbeat, influenced by The Chemical Brothers, Prodigy and Fatboy Slim. Revolution Void had a somewhat more lo-fi aesthetic than these artists, however, due in large part to the fact that Jonah produced music using MOD programs such as FastTracker2.

In 1999, Revolution Void’s first single, Viva la Revolucion, was released as a limited-edition 12”. The title track of the release was 10 minutes of melodic/epic breaks, but it was the B-side that showed the direction R.V. was going. On the B-side, the first influences of jazz are seen, with the dark jazzy breaks track Trip Time Divine.

In 2000, Revolution Void’s first full-length CD, Like a Secret Dream, was released. The album combined more dancefloor-friendly breakbeat tracks with explorations into downtempo, funk, jazz and other styles.

It was not until 2004’s release of Increase the Dosage that Revolution Void became established as a purveyor of electronic-jazz. The album prominently featured guest solos from notable modern jazz musicians such as Seamus Blake (sax player for the Mingus Big Band) and Matthew Garrison (bassist for Herbie Hancock).
