JK Flesh Biography

Updated: 2024/02/09
Status: Active
Bio: The JK Flesh pseudonym dates back to at least 1996 when Justin went by the name on early Techno Animal releases. In addition, some early remixes are credited to the name as well. However, as a solo entity, it wasn't until 2012 that a fully-realized LP would come. This project became much more prolific afterwards, with a number of releases, remixes of other artists' work and live shows and remains one of Justin's main projects.
