Learn more about Furtive here:
Furtive is a full-gonzo polychromatic techno conjurer. A Washington DC-based producer, DJ, and event organizer, Furtive manifests techno with warping, slippery textures and eclectic asides - both in his studio work and in DJ sets. He helps carry the community as a member of SEQUENCE, a local team of rave-rats organizing some of the District’s zaniest techno parties. A prolific producer, Furtive has recently landed releases on Warok Music, Metro Xpress, Northallsen Records, and Format Recordings, along with several self-published releases and a handful of further pending ones. The recent past has seen this elusive rave supplicant sharing billings with internationally celebrated acts like Wata Igarashi, VTSS, Rhyw, Rrose, Umfang, Sterac, Adam X, Tensal, and Developer. Beyond the dance floors and strobe lights, Furtive moonlights as a visual artist.
Furtive grew up as a bit of a perpetual cultural outsider: born and raised somewhere in Southern California’s sun-weathered and dusty Inland Empire, but spending many formative years in Berlin, he grew up between three languages and even more histories. Furtive’s musical arc zigzags wildly: from classical music, Russian pop, and a formative, fateful exposure to trance in childhood, to trashy metalcore and gabber in high school, and later to the transcendental worlds of gloomy experimental metal, Cascadian singer-songwriters, and the thrill of exploring obscure vinyl collections on sunny afternoons.
While Furtive’s production is fundamentally techno refracted through these aesthetic and conceptual sensibilities and some wacky studio idiosyncrasies, the real drive for his output is the creative cauldron of Washington, DC. Furtive arrived in the nation’s capital in early 2015, and immediately threw himself into the strange, scuzzy, and enchanting underground spaces of the District.
Furtive also moonlights as a visual artist, splattering ink and breaking crayons in the studio.
In his words:
“I aim for the stars, but sometimes I land in a pool of mermaids.”
