Jemapur was born in 1986 and brought up in a family enthusiastic about classical music. He started playing the piano when he was a child, and by elementary school he was composing music in his own unique style. In the year 2000, he began composing music digitally. In 2002 he launched his own music label, and garnered attention by remixing overseas artists’ such as Nacht Plack and Machine Drum. He also wrote music for the Japanese MC unit 降神 (Origami) and Shibitto, acclaimed for their originality of expression. His work in 2004-2005 drew the interest of track maker and producer Nujabes, and Jemapur’s first full album, Dok Springs was released on Nujabes’s label Hydeout Productions in 2006. The album appeals to a wide range of listeners and has sold over 7000 copies to date.

Jemapur’s highly evolved compositional skills steeped in the classic tradition are perfectly hybridized with his acute sensitivities as a new generation beat maker baptized in electronic music. The tracks are deceptively simple constructions which, upon deeper listening, reveal themselves to be beautifully detailed and complex. His ultimate theme is exploring how his personal hero, J.S. Bach, would compose electronic music in these modern times. Recently, he is broadening his activities, and has joined with Audio Active guitarist Cutsigh to form experimental unit “DELMAK”.

Jemapur has evolved dramatically since his first album 2 years ago and Evacuation is his second album. The 14 tracks have been carefully selected from a massive repertoire of compositions created between 2006 and 2008. The DVD includes 4 fresh new music videos as well.
