Exclusive Download: Artifact – If You Can’t



We love introducing you to cool new artists here at DT. Some might say it’s the very reason for our existence. We also like giving you lovely people free content, whether it be by dropping the hottest mixes or the freshest tracks. So you can imagine our excitement when we manage to combine showcasing fresh talent and a track giveaway which is exactly what we’re doing this Friday to kick off your weekend in style with this exclusive download courtesy of Artifact.

One of the most promising young producers currently emerging, Artifact’s early forays into production were influenced by the contrasting flavours of the Bristol scene and the diversity of sounds found there. Further defined by a year spent studying in Cologne (home of the seminal Kompakt Records), his sound matured into lauded releases for Deadplate, Local Action and Rebirth.

Melding together elements of bass, swing techno and analogue house, Artifact’s style is already inimitable  decribed as “often dark, percussive, propulsive.”

We’re clearly not the only ones to have taken note with strong releases coming from the Bristol native throughout 2013 on the likes of Kerri Chandler’s Mad Tech and Ben Pearce’s Purp&Soul. Not one to rest on his laurels, Artifact has similarly big plans for this year with a new EP for Huxley’s Saints & Sonnets imprint due soon and shows at the likes of Snowbombing and Fabric all ready scheduled in for the next few months. Expect to hear plenty more of this young man over the coming months. 


Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
