DJ-ing began for Vince Watson at his school’s weekend discos with a selection of hip-hop and early house records filling his box. He worked up a collection unlike any other young DJ, in between visits to the Royal Academy for Art, Music and Drama in Glasgow for piano lessons, before electronic and ambient music grabbed his attention.

These influences are all clear in his productions which are elegant and seductive with emotional ambiences generated by his skills of manipulating a keyboard, to bring complex multichords and dense yet fully melodic patches to contemporary dance music. While the Summer of Love was in full swing, Watson was in his bedroom honing his skills and immersing himself in electronic music, taking influence from some of the genre’s greatest composers like Herbie Hancock, Derrick May and French showman Jean Michel Jarre.

He began experimenting with a new technology – MIDI – and slowly gathered the necessary equipment needed to record his own tracks. Dave Angel picked up one of Watson’s first demos and signed him to his label Rotation in 1995, where he released the 1st Innovations EP, and the pair set-up a residency at The Arena in Glasgow – opportunities which saw his name make waves in the techno scene.

He helped facilitate the house-techno cross over at the end of the Millennium with his debut LP Biologique. It carried with it Bubbles and seminal track Mystical Rhythm, which still holds classic status on dance floors across the world.

His work caused a catatonic impact in the global electronic scene for setting a personal hypnotic perspective of groovy, melody and atmospheric sounds. He followed this up in with Moments in Time on New York’s legendary Ibadan label, along with Alola Records in the UK, gaining worldwide recognition as one of techno’s leading producers and live acts.

Two years later Watson released Echoes From the Future: View to the Past and Sublimina, demonstrating his diversity and dexterity by trying, successfully, to breathe new life into electronica, and continued with The eMotion Sequence on Delsin.

His own label, Bio Music, has consistently produced quality techno, with support and high profile licenses from the likes of Carl Cox to Laurent Garnier. A four years static period was reignited in 2010 with A Very Different World featuring FunkdVoid, with Dj Rolando, Alexander Kowalski, Ian O'Donovan, Paul Woolford, Heiko Laux, Octave One and Steve Rachmad all featuring on the label in its new look.

And like with his own productions, Watson has been keen to vary his output as label manager with the brand new sister project, Everysoul. The label focus is versatility and creativity - The first single ‘Love in F Minor’ was released to great critical acclaim late in 2010 and his 7th studio album ‘Every Soul Needs a Guide' will follow in March 2012, with a sampler released in late Feb.

‘Pressure’ was released on Bio and featured remixes by Octave One, Steve Rachmad and Psycatron and his 2nd single on Berlin’s Tresor was released in February 2012.

A whole plethora of remixes are due to be released from various artists over the coming months including Alexander Kowalski and Funk D Void.

Vince has also recently released an 800sample DVD free on the front cover of Computer Music Magazine worldwide, selling over 1 million copies and also just recently had his music featured on Sky One's TV Series Mad Dogs series 2

His currently touring his new liveshow using hardware, which debuted at Fabric London in 2011, and has toured Japan, Brazil and Australia in the last 6 months.

To date Vince Watson has released and is currently signed to the following labels, Rekids, Planet E, Tresor, Mule, Everysoul, Delsin, Bio, Fcom, Ibadan, Bullet:Dodge and Urban Torque.
