Etch began producing in his bedroom at the age of 12 after the infectious curiosity of early 00’s drum & bass, hip hop and experimental electronic music, as time developed and he carved a taste in music through garage, grime, dubstep and hip hop, he began to amalgamate his past into his productions, form the psychedelic and colourful soundscapes of The Doors, 13th Floor Elevators, Piero Umiliani, Tom Waits and to the dusty collection of his uncles records including Mo’ Wax, Metalheadz, No U Turn, Dee Jay and Moving Shadow. With a love of technicality and emotive expression via drums, bass, atmospherics and electronic intricacies, Etch set about making warm forward facing music and has since released on Ilian Tape, Seagrave, Lapsus, Sneaker Social Club & Soundman Chronicles to name a few. Etches approach to DJing as as far flung as his inspirations for production, seamlessly drawing in tearing breaks to techno & experimental, with the half time patterns of hip hop, moving up/down bpm and styles creating an exciting and varied amalgamation of sounds.
Aside from this Etch has hosted numerous radio shows and held a 2 year monthly slot on London’s Radar Radio as well as appearances on Rinse.fm, Reprezent.fm, Resonance.fm, NTS Radio & More. He also runs his own label Altered Roads in which he releases purely his own productions that are of a more experimental nature. & co-founded label BTG with Bulu - He now runs a monthly show on Balamii Radio "Disconnecting The Dots With Etch"Source [Spotify]
