My stage name is Jlin, but my real name is Jerrilynn Patton. I love creating and composing music to life. My musical journey began at the end of either 07 or 08, I can never remember exactly. I create from the things are that make me most uncomfortable about myself. My best creations come from me having to face myself and acknowledge the things about me that I know need to be fixed. Water is my greatest inspiration. It flows, it clashes, but it never stands still even if it appears to. I try to be like water, just like legend Bruce Lee said to be.

Quote: 2015 - LA Times – (article #2) – "Jlin, showcases footwork's most modern manifestation and takes it in ridiculously innovative directions."

He also conducted interviews and wrote liner notes for the recent "Hardcore Traxx: Dance Mania Records 1986-1997″ compilation for Strut Records.

In his previous incarnation as Chrissy Murderbot, he helped introduce the world to footwork music through his DJ gigs and releases on Planet Mu. He organized the first international tour of footwork dancers, and still runs the successful juke/footwork label Loose Squares.

"He provides a unique perspective as one of the earliest people to connect the dots, laying the groundwork for the explosion of interest in juke and footwork by the UK bass community and beyond." — Resident Advisor
