Jenova 7 is the music nom de plume of Boston-based artist Michael J. Sirois. His genres include trip-hop, downtempo, chillout & instrumental hip-hop. He was featured on Mushroom Jazz 8, the latest volume of DJ Mark Farina's iconic chillout compilation series. He is most recognized for his “Dusted Jazz” instrumental series, distinct for exploring jazz grooves, organic drum breaks & moody, cinematic vibes. His style is influenced by earlier pioneers DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, DJ Cam & Portishead, and Golden Era hip-hop producers DJ Premier & Pete Rock. After graduating from college with a degree in film, he moved to Los Angeles for a year & started releasing music with the Dusted Wax Kingdom label. In 2013, he joined the Los Angeles-based Cold Busted record label. A self-taught musician, his style has been inspired & guided by a versatile taste in music & a love of storytelling. Every album is a soundtrack to an imaginary film. His albums are a blend of the past & present, mixing vintage crate-digger samples with live instrumentation. His performances often feature original cinematic background visuals set behind live MPC beatmaking & improvised guitar playing inspired by his hero, Jimi Hendrix. He's collaborated with French producer Hugo Kant, Craig G of the legendary Juice Crew, Boston Music Awards winner M-Dot, jazz musician Josh Lawrence as well as labelmates Esbe & Erik Jackson. He's also a member of the enigmatic trip-hop trio Wax Triptych, alongside Mononome & Mr. Moods.
