Behind the moniker Badlands stands Swedish producer, composer & sound designer Catharina Jaunviksna. She makes lush and alluring tracks rooted in analog synthetics, gritty guitars, club beats and organic orchestration. 
 Jaunviksna is also a touring musician and has a strong kinship with the electro community in Dublin, where she’s lived on and off over the years. She’s the founder of the record label and production company RITE based in Malmö, Sweden, from where she’s composing commissioned original music and sound designs for film and theater on a regular basis. 
 “ 'Djinn' is a stunning, delicately composed collection, paying homage to Badlands’ electro, post-punk and new wave influences, and in the end, something fresh, new and all her own.” - SPIN Magazine 
 "The soundtrack to a very danceable apocalypse” - VICE 
 "It’s impossible not to repeat ‘Echo’ over and over (and over) again" - BBC 6 Music 
 “Badlands solidifies herself as a leader in her field." - IMPOSE Magazine
