Over the past 20 years i've developed my sound and production style into the harder end of the techno spectrum. Taking influences from a vast array of artists, mainly from R&S, React, Underground Resistance, Prolekult, SUF and many others; My DJ style has become hard and energetic with relentless rhythm and sub bass laden grooves that have become synonymous within the hard techno fraternity.
I'm proud to say that my production skills are getting stronger by the day, which stems from collaborations with D.a.v.e The Drummer at the Punishment Farm (lucky i know), where i launched the "Kick Drum Engineering" project which (as the name suggests) used a form of mono-synthesis to create all the track parts with a kick drum. Examples can be found at www.junodownload.com, along with other works that i've produced as a solo artist and a collaboration with Adam Zentral from the Underground Attack crew.
Now my work has picked up the pace of hardtekno, acid and drum and bass, and am fusing them together to create a hybrid acid techno meets drum and bass style. With support from acclaimed artists such as Mandi-dextrous, Mobile Dogwash & Champion Breaks, all proving pivotal in pushing my newly found sound forward.
In events, i've utilised my education in music and events and creating music through technology, with a vast amount of integration with the Antiworld indoor festivals and various other smaller parties, this extensive experience includes working with some of the undergrounds highly respected professionals in event and stage production, promotion, performing arts, distribution, room management and décor’ installation, evidently being involved with many aspects of the organisation both as a front man and back of house crew.
All this as well as a history involving a string of warm up's and promotional jobs for the Stay Up Forever Collective, including Guy "Geezer" McGaffer's "Ave Some Of That You W*nkers" album launch party and the long running Nuclear Free Zone & Smash Techno at the 414, various showcases with the NRGized party crew, playing every Thursday at Tekno @ the George and making his debut festival performance at the Rebound Collective festival on the Orpheus & Friends stage; as well as recent unscheduled showcases on the Hub, Every1Sounds, StinkyPink, Ardcore, Underkonstruktion, Hackney Sounds and various other rigs that have all become synonymous in underground culture.
Now i've become an integral part of the Killawatts Records crew and am involved in as much of te organisation as i was back in the days of the Antiworld events. Things are moving forwards behind the scenes, although not too much can be disclosed as of yet, but events are planned as well as vinyl releases coming very soon. I've also recently joined the Vorteks sound system who are really pushing the underground vibes forward, festival bookings for the spring and summer are now confirmed where i will be performing my take on hard techno and getting my hands dirty with the production aspect of the events.
The future is looking more and more exciting, with aspirations and the foundations becoming realised to take the acquired sound and style to a larger audience around the world, whilst releasing music on my Kick Drum Engineering, WIP Records & Computer Controlled Noise imprints.
