Blush Response is Joey Blush, a Berlin-based, Cuban-American artist and sound designer.

Blush Response’s music is characterized by a modular synth heavy approach to sound design, combining rough, glitch-heavy beats with thick, distorted synths to create a sound that blurs the lines between electronic genres.

A former member of the group “Agony Forces”, that performed at the most important clubs and festivals in Spain, P.E.A.R.L.‘s restless and innovative nature often leads him to look for the sounds far beyond the dance club, bringing him closer to the other fields of electronic and experimental music.
