DT572 – Ashes


Inspired by shadowy dancers whirling insanely through clouds of smoke and dark lights. Ashes particular approach to music is purely bacchanal. Hypnotic driving techno; Conjuring rhythms, melodies and noise to increase the frequency of the peak.

The rush of sound exploding all around and the constant waves of energy that people are giving off while getting down. Born in the City of Los Angeles and submerged in the centre of the nation’s entertainment industry. Drawing influences from the west coast’s many flavours of music fluctuating, transcending and ultimately existing as the core for new sounds to breed. His inspiration for Industrial music is what drove him to explore sound designing and performance and with the popularity of rave culture growing in the U.S. it wasn’t long after his heart was captured by Drum & Bass. This led to his first DJ gig in L.A. at Nova Express which soon became a residency held for some years all the while playing at many underground raves.

As fate would have it, his call to Berlin was more of a crash landing. Losing himself to the dark void of Berlin’s music scene. It was then that he realised the deep rooted power of Techno and is now set on challenging and furthering the experience of electronic music.
