Studio Tann (also sometimes known as DJ Jonah) cites as main artistic influences J. Dilla, Flying Lotus, Aphex Twin, Bjork, Madlib, Hudson Mohawke, and Mount Kimbie. Like the more soul- and jazz-minded DJs of the post-2000 era, such as Japan's legendary Towa Tei, and popular Los Angeles favorite, Teebs, Studio Tann uses a smorgasbord of instrumentation to achieve a highly textured sonic experience that works in virtually any circumstance.
Tann's representative writes of his signature style, “Studio Tann evokes errors in sound to create soulful music. Some of the most creative ideas come from mistakes; they are alternative ways of looking at an idea. 'Error$oul' is about learning from mistakes. This is the foundation of the Studio Tann sound. These elements are used to compose beats and melodies in a forward-thinking style and a laid-back vibe.”
Studio Tann's new EP is best categorized as glitch hop, or experimental beats, but is commonly found online as electronica or simply dance music.
The Orange Press says of the record, “Here's a lovely slice of bottom-heavy, glitchy, dubsteppy biz, care of Studio Tann, also known as DJ Jonah. I'm loving it.”
Studio Tann has collaborated with such top-shelf artists as Alphamama, DJ Triptrix, KillaQueenz, Radical Son, Kween G, Lotek, and Skylounja. His “48 Ways 2 Live” features prominently on the “Headroom Vol. 1” compilation album, available online from the Frequency Lab music label.
