Federico Ferraris (J.Sintax) was born in the dynamic and restless quarter of San Salvario, in a northern town of Italy - Torino. There he was influenced by the new wave of electro that invade Torino in the end of the 90's. Attending the most engaged undergrounds clubs of the city, he begins to understand the potential of electronic music. Having been involved in a wide range of musical genres, from metal to blues, Federico develops the J.Sintax project as an eclectic conception of music that begins with experimentation. Naturally born instrumentalist, preferring guitars, he brings in his old Fender Stratocaster to the world of electronic music. And this is just an example of his continuous researching for new ways to mix up electronic music with analog instruments and with his own life experiences around the world.
J.Sintax can be said to have started his career at the dawn of the century playing live techno-minimal sets with vinyls, through the loved Technics. Soon after he focuses his efforts to produce tracks with Reason, Ableton Live and his Korg Emx. He also collaborated with the postmetal band Kynesis, introducing electronic instrumentation. 2010 marks J.Sintax adding oriental/traditional influences and motives to his productions, after a long stay in the city of Istanbul, where he had some gigs around the central Taksim area. Right now, J.Sintax is still seeking new "contaminated" sounds, bypassing electro, dark minimal, breaks, IDM, but mostly focusing on techno. J.Sintax started live PA tour through Europe with a mix of old and new musical references. Done mostly with Ableton Live and Korg Emx, it has been broadcasted in April 2012 on the polish radio Afera during the Dj's Night show. In 2012 he also became a Piemonte Groove Young Talent and did some big festivals as Collisioni and Club to Club. Now, after spending some months in Cambodia where he played in various khmer and western clubs, he is coming back to Italy, looking forward to new productions with No.One.Team and his new project Analog Dylemma (with Noizy Knobs).
