Jollichimp marks the latest misstep in human evolution, and, as a direct result, the arrival of the semi-twisted thump-o-sounds that naturally occur when things go a bit phenotypically sideways.

Designed, built, and operated by The Klown (founder and frontman of the renowned and notorious electro-funk band Gooferman, as well as primatological offspring ZjitZjo, Jolligood Carnival Supply, and TrashKan Marchink Band) Jollichimp uses DARPA-level circus distillate to fuel an ever-changing, hyperflavored musical gumbo known far and wide as Funhouse Bass — a naughty purée of West Coast bass, global bass, breaks, glitch, drum & bass, rock, soul, house, and nu funk — to intentionally infect human souls with the kind of neolithic wiggle you can only find in, on, and/or around a proper psychonautical trip.

On the visuals front, Jollichimp is actively involved with the latest grand experiments in AI-generated art and film, pulling robot-enhanced graphics in all kinds of misdirections and into performance with the gravity and glamor of a symbiotic, sense-o-matic black hole, for the purposes of both show and tell.
