Music shapeshifts from deep & dubby to trancey or more agressive techno, dubtech, electro, tribal rhythms or ambient. It’s not style that is important, but a general feel or character of sound flow that can be summed up as ‘hypno’ or ‘liminal techno’ – techno that borders or merges with other genres.
Organizer of Force Carriers techno label.
The cooperation with Unsound Festival has led to work with UK dubstep producer Pinch with whom Jellybean / Poison / Remedy (12″) were released – and to playing with multi-instrumentalist Artem Atrashevsky (B_twisted) in a dub/downtempo duo Nerdy Dubz.
Works at European Humanities University (Vilnius, LT) teaching courses on Contemporary Music Cultures and Creative Industries.
