Having grown up in a family of classically trained musicians, Nocturne has been surrounded and fascinated by music from a young age, very early on sketching out primitive compositions on his grandad’s collection of keyboards;

He bought his own set of decks with pocket money at the age of 12 and has dabbled with dj’ing on and off ever since, mostly playing house parties and putting out his own mix series without playing out professionally yet. His influences are disparate and wide-ranging but geography plays a key-part in the forming of what could be called his ‘sound’. Having grown up near Bristol and lived in Manchester for the past 7 years, has been influenced by both cities which are renowned for producing artists with a sense of the experimental, dis-regarding genre-purism and with a streak of the melancholy in their music.

“As a result, whilst it has become somewhat of a cliche in itself to say you have a style that’s hard to pin down, I would say that although genre and tempo are unimportant to me I tend to be drawn to music with a dark and anxious mood, that sits on the leftfield of what is expected and generally has an experimental streak. I admire DJ’s and producers such as Objekt, Call Super and Ben UFO; guys that disregard the idea that you should fit comfortably within a pigeonhole and have played a unique role in pushing forward the expectations of how a ‘techno’ set and track should sound. I am also inspired by the connection of the visual and aural and am drawn to labels, parties and artists with a strong aesthetic concept behind their work, something which I have tried to capture by producing the artwork for my mix series.”

We are excited to present this compelling, eccentric and powerful mix for Tales of Psychofonia. Our first podcast for 2017!ENJOY!
