GENEVA JACUZZI is a legen­da­ry LA-based song­wri­ter, musi­ci­an and visu­al artist who is known for her uni­que style of synth dri­ven bedroom pop record­ings, thea­tri­cal sta­ge per­so­nas and retro style video art. Her lyrics descri­be blood being thrown onto fire, clown-like machi­nes in search of sad­ness and the raging mono­lo­gues of future and past ele­men­tal beings. Her vide­os and live per­for­man­ces por­tray the sto­ry of a once abundant Self being shat­te­red into a varie­ty of other per­so­nas such as Dra­cu­la, Mir­ne, Zygo­te, Roz­bo etc. all being play­ed by herself, and all can­ni­ba­li­zing and com­mo­di­fy­ing their rape reven­ge upon the idea of an ori­gi­nal Self which is now lost some­whe­re in the Islands of the Jacuz­zi.

By 2010 GENEVA JACUZZI released her first album “Lama­ze” at Vinyl Inter­na­tio­nal, a collec­tion of songs taken from pre­vious unof­fi­ci­al relea­ses. In 2011 she was teaming up with long time muse and play­w­right, Casey Obe­lisk, and begin­ning her latest pro­ject tit­led “Dark Ages” which pulls toge­ther most of her past and pre­sent work into an epic art video odys­sey. Her latest album “Tech­no­phe­lia” has just been released on Medi­cal Records.

Jacuz­zi is accom­pa­nied by DUBAIS which is the Lo-Fi-Dark-Dis­co-Pro­ject of Nadia Buy­se. It was for­med in a bathroom in Ant­werp as homage to all past rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ons, medi­ta­ti­ons, or pre­dic­tions of future uto­pi­as, sta­tes of being, and tech­no­lo­gies. The Ara­bic-futu­ris­tic mul­ti­me­dia artist begui­les the audi­ence with her glamo­rous, extra­va­gant and mys­te­rious per­for­man­ces.

Jacuz­zi, 34, is a key figu­re in L.A.‘s under­ground art and music sce­ne. A weir­do to the core, she com­man­ds a cult fol­lo­wing thanks to her ‘80s-style goth-pop tunes and phan­tas­ma­go­ric live shows.” (self-tit­led music maga­zi­ne 2016)
