Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Signed to Crossworld Records.
Rob Holmes produces, plays and rather enjoys electronic music.
His musical influences span many genres and eras from late 80's hip-hop and soul through to the pioneers of the electronic sound including Joy Division and Depeche Mode.
Born in the UK, Rob started DJing at 16 playing old hip hop records he'd borrowed from friends and slowly discovered electronic music in the mid-90's through trips to Ibiza and long nights spent in dark clubs. Rob started to run club nights in his home town of Norwich and was beginning to sway towards the deep tribal sound of house music, inspired by DJs and producers including Steve Lawler, Danny Tenaglia and Peace Division.
In 2004 Rob moved to London where he continued promoting successful events in the capitals East End for a number of years until he decided to focus his efforts on production.
Robs sound is very house orientated with a strong groove at its heart. His influences include Audiofly, Carl Craig, Four Tet, Hector Couto, Pantha Du Prince and one of 2011's most exciting new talents, Maya Jane Coles. His favourite labels include Get Phyisical, ViVa Music, Mobilee, Saved, Crosstown Rebels and Buzzin Fly.
