DISSØLV is a live hybrid electronic dance music project fusing global instrumentation, electric violin and dance performance
DISSØLV’s sound rides through waves of mesmeric melodies; from deep dubstep with ethno rhythms to high energy tribal trap. Their live experience is brought to life by electric violin and tribal fusion dance theatrics.
Multi-instrumentalists and brothers, Valentin Santana and Andre Reinero, join with tribal fusion dancer, Jasmine Semjase, to create a powerful trinity that embarks on a heavy hitting and hypnotic journey.
DISSØLV has performed alongside some of their most influential artists including Shpongle, Desert Dwellers, David Starfire and Soohan. Their travels have taken them from the Warfield and Fillmore theaters of San Francisco, to many world renowned festivals like Lightning in a Bottle, Lucidity Festival, Symbiosis Gathering and Burning Man (Opulent Temple, Camp Questionmark), including multiple international appearances in Central America. They have also had special performances with Dr. Bruce Damer and Android Jones.
DISSØLV has released 3 Ep’s with multiple singles, including vocal remixes of Wildlight and ALIA. Dissølv has been a resident contributor to labels such as Gravitas Recordings and Kalya Scintilla’s Merkaba Music. Their music has been supported by publishers such as the Untz, Euphoric and Keyframe Entertainment.
