Emlyn BPM: In the early 90s I discovered house music, and travelling through the UK and Europe, I chased the sounds of Sasha & Digweed, Steve Lawler, Yousef and Paul Van Dyk. Club night favourites included Chuff Chuff, Dakota, fabric and The Cross. At the first opportunity I purchased a pair of Technics 1210s, then every spare minute was spent trawling through record shops in Covent Garden and Soho looking for that dark, underground house beat. Favourite record labels of the 90s included Bedrock, Pryda, Renaissance, Platypus, Subliminal, Yoshitoshi to name a few. All were pulled out of the record bag at house parties in London and Wales.
This record collection was well travelled, in 2003 I made Australia home. I continued to collect vinyl and played radio sets in Melbourne and the Gold Coast. In 2009 I decided to start making my own music. My sound is house, tech house and progressive, depending on my mood and inspiration.
My compilation mix for Underground Sound Signals kicks off with my track Fixe – a deep tech style track with influences from Sasha. In particular I started with a Sasha style synth to write the bass line. This track forms part of my Chasm EP, which is due for release on 24 October from LA label Vudeux Records. I have been signed to Vudeux Records since May 2017. The remainder of the mix includes some of my current favourite artists and producers – Cristoph, Jeremy Olander and Victor Calderone to name a few.
