The turn of the millennium marks what was to be the birth of the electronic music experience for this passionate, South African born, Techno producer. The calling was undeniable and so began a journey of self discovery in the creation of sound and rhythm. A decade later and having been largely influenced by the hypnotic sounds of Spektre and many Italian artists such as Sasha Carassi, Mr. Bizz, and of course pioneering labels Drumcode and Gem Records, it was undoubtedly Techno that resonated with his core. Brooding, dark, tribal, driving are a few words he uses to describe what he looks for in a great track. You only need to listen for yourself to get an idea of what Emoutikon is all about. With the onset of the digital DJ age and being first and foremost a producer, this certainly translates through his live DJ sets as he actively extends the art of playing music as a creatively captive experience. Progressively becoming more active in South Africa's small but passionately budding Techno scene at events such as LovePeaceTechno, Illicit Material and Johannesburg's Teknotribe, and with the onset of his first EP release on Teknotribe's respective label in 2012, there is clearly still a whole lot more to come from this unique and inspiring artist from the other side of the world.
