DESCRIPTION:
Endif draws upon a broad spectrum of experiences and influences and distills them into original sonic compositions incorporating driving percussion, gritty noise theory, precision analogue synth lines, raw vocals, and tightly controlled experimentation - a syncrete of techniques with a mind altering rhythmic bent and a fierce uncompromising aesthetic.

Emphasis is placed more upon energy, emotion, context and texture than on stale commercial formulas, flavor-of-the-week emulation, towering arrangements, or catchy pop hooks. The net result has dragged this one-time studio project out of the shadows and into the conciousness of hard-electronic enthusiasts across the planet. DJ's have found Endif's output highly compatible in both club and radio applications, and new playlists are infected daily.

Endif is a founding member of Thirdwave Collective.

LIVE:
Endif adheres to the idea that live shows should be dynamic, responding to the ebb and flow of energies between performer and audience, not mere playback. One can expect live percussion, prepared audio manipulation, real-time experimentation, and theatric undercurrents at any of event this project has been booked for. In addition to the project core (Hollis), one or more live-plug in performers are integrated, each adding their unique personality, energy and sound to the mix.
