Encryption prescription. Purveyor of tough beats.

Encrypter is the pseudonym of Dave Jacob, an Irish electronic composer, producer and performer. Since his first club residency over a decade ago he has organised and performed at countless events, supporting the likes of Stormtrooper, Detest and DJ Rush. During this time he has dragged decks and desktops anywhere that a juddering techno assault was needed. From sweaty pubs and clubs to the rain-drenched beaches and forests of Ireland’s south-east. He is the host of the Torsion show on Future Music and has had his original tracks and remixes released on labels like Gobsmacked, Lo-Tech and Motormouth.

Initially starting out with a set of shonky CDJ-500s and eventually progressing to vinyl via Serato, his preferred delivery method these days is a MIDI controlled four deck Traktor setup. This is performed with as few effects (usually just a single delay), as little faff and as much emphasis on solid, interesting tracks as possible. Hands off the flanger and the mangler.

The style of techno favoured by Encrypter is one incorporating tough and dirty rhythms, with elements of industrial and sparse melodic content. A typical mix will aim to incorporate fresh underground tracks overlaid with the odd piece of classic techno and music from the strongest/noisiest in the Irish techno scene (such as Myler, Henja, Lakker etc.)

Encrypter is currently seeking gigs in Melbourne. Contact numberdave {at} gmail {dot} com for more information.
