Drummer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Steve Jansen was raised in South East London. His interest in music began at an early age leading to his involvement in the band, Japan, signed to the German label Hansa in 1977 and Virgin Records in 1980. Over the course of his career he has participated in many projects with former band members Richard Barbieri, Mick Karn and David Sylvian. Jansen has produced a number of solo releases and most currently has a band unit called Exit North with Swedish vocalist Thomas Feiner.

"I had a tendency to record and document events, partly born out of the nature of my job and partly because I felt that life was showing and teaching me things so fast that I knew no matter what I did, I was bound to miss much of it. I developed a particular urge to pause events, capture moments and take notes, before they expired forever.

Experiences were rushing past like landscapes on a speeding train. I, and the people who surrounded me were highly attuned to visual appearance. It wasn’t for the purpose of pretence or image, it was a real and vital identity. A decisive leap away from suppression and control. An escape from the authorities that hounded us all of our young lives."
