The Personages in Jasmine Sokko

"I drown in your sad blue eyes / And I've kinda lost my way / You said don't worry cause / You're halfway through into the water" — muses singer-producer Jasmine Sokko on her latest single #0000FF. Released under Amsterdam-based electronic music label KnightVision Records, the song is an emotive slow burner which describes one's struggle with mental health.

In September, she released Nº EP — a long-awaited release since her debut single 1057, which saw her rise up as one of the new electronic acts to look out for. Like her music, Jasmine Sokko remains abstruse, almost untraceable outside the world of music. As such, one would compare her approach and mysteriousness to Italian novelist Elena Ferrante. However, unlike Ferrante, Sokko lets her individuality and power shine through masks created after strong, emotional narratives — making the gears her most valuable assets that guide listeners into her world.
