Catacombs (aka Midlands resident Calum Wilton) had established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the underground dubstep scene in 2012. With both vinyl and digital releases on exciting new labels such as MUD and Innamind, and DJ backing from dubstep’s earliest supporters, such as Hatcha and Youngsta, it’s clear he had spent his hours in the studio wisely. Behind the decks he also seemed to be making the right moves, assuring himself a residency with Manchester’s rapidly ascending Project 13 club night.
Inspired by drum and bass artists such as Noisia, Ed Rush and Optical, and Bad Company, his early productions set about fusing morphing basslines, with the kind of 140 you’d expect from Loefah or Kryptic Minds. Ever expanding on his own sounds, his more recent productions attempt to recreate the cold sound of dark techno such as Oscar Mulero and Raiz, at dubstep tempo. You can be assured that any Catacombs production will come with a certain space and minimal aesthetic, mixed with his own signature sounds.
Having first been noticed on Distance’s new talent section in 2011, Catacombs dubs have found themselves in the sets of Youngsta, Hatcha, N-Type, Joe Nice, Anti-Social, Biome, Jack Sparrow and Truth, on radio stations such as BBC 1Xtra, Kiss, Sub FM and Rinse.
In 2013, he doesn’t seem to be slowing down; playing dj sets from Belgium and Brixton to Brighton, recording a mix for DJ N-Types Wheel and Deal imprint, and with forthcoming releases and remixes on exciting labels, the future looks bright for Catacombs.
