Justus Raym's musical philosophy follows a certain set of rules or mantras, which he describes as

Movement = sanity Static=insanity

It is these phrases that are the inspiration behind the conception and drive of his work. On the forthcoming double EP titled BERLIN4SBASTARDS/EPILEPTIC, Justus explores two very different sides of his personality over eight beautiful, complex and enchanted musical pieces.

BERLIN4SBASTARDS the first of two EP’s is described by Justus as “Looking Inside”. Here he shares his honest feelings and intimate experiences. He speaks about language as a system of communication and through his work analyses the difficulties and complexities faced through language being his main vessel to convey feelings and emotions.

On the forthcoming EP EPILEPTIC, he is “Looking outside” he focuses on discussing the collective insanity and the apparent disunity of all things around us. Drawing a sonic picture of the current times, observing and scrutinising our incapacity as human beings and individuals to adapt to a complex global system. Justus delves into the concept that every human being is a cell, part of the larger organism which is Humanity and through the sounds expresses that he feels this organism is sick, inflamed and epileptic.

Both EP’s were recorded in Justus’ home studio between Berlin and France. Collecting and manipulating field recordings and experimenting with collage techniques is fundamental to his practice and opens up pathways for expression and inspiration for the other instruments he records.
