I'm RRRitalin. I make dirty, bouncy rave music by mashing together elements from the past 30 years of dance music. I grew up listening to Jungle and oldskool hardcore, hiphop and ghettotek, bassline, dubstep, techno, UK garage and soundsystem culture and I reference all of these in my music. With RRRitalin's music, I'm trying to recreate my first experience of raving, when everything was confusing and disorienting and ever so slightly scary.
By day I'm a neuroscience PhD student, so RRRitalin represents the Dyonisian in me, throwing my restrained professional side into sharp, debauched relief.
I had my first vinyl release in January 2011 on Coin Operated recordings, and since then I've played at a wide range of nights and festivals across Europe, alongside some brilliant artists like Kanji Kinetic, Chris Clark, Luke Vibert, and Remarc.
I'm currently working on tracks for several labels including Coin Operated, Cock Rock Disco, Kitty Corner, Horror Boogie, and Mutant Bass. I'll also be joing Kanji Kinetic and Submerse on a Mutant Bass Records tour this autumn. Bookings via
Is rrritalin's rather less developed electronica side project, the result of having always been equally moved by balls-out rave and beautiful electronic music with...like..melody and stuff. The last few years have been concentrated on the former, but now the latter is getting a look in.
