Spending my formative years growing up in the UK, dance / rave music culture had a resounding effect on me. An avid vinyl collector, pirate radio enthusiast, bedroom DJ and producer in my youth, I formed a deep connection to electronic music as both a social space and a sanctuary for the sonic imaginary. Now that I’m older, my attachment to it has transformed; in many ways its become stronger in a more holistic sense, I feel it more through movement now because I’ve begun to open up to the possibility of understanding sound instinctively via the body in motion.

A selection of my early electronic music works (2004-2008) are now available on my bandcamp site. Here is the first track of the Fuz3 album:

 

“A digitally processed white-noise assault on the senses, ‘Noizu’ emerges from the abrasive depths of the Zoo Tongue archive to slap you sideways with its brittle palette, contorted groove and intricate rhythmic edits.”
