Biography of Default Disruptor
|Real name / || |
Default Disruptor started his DJ career at a youth club, before playing at an outdoor free party. He's played at music festivals, clubs and strange basements in cities around the UK, Europe and the USA. He's previously managed a one-paragraph mention in Mixmag, and a short column in Time Out New York, under different guises. He has spent 20 years playing music with no particularly notable success, but he keeps doing it because it's a relentless compulsion, and he couldn't stop himself even if he wanted to.
He set up and started working on the Achintya Sound project in the autumn of 2011, and after a couple of false-starts, finally put together a launch party for a drum n' bass night called Shut That Shit Down, for which he played a warm-up set. With a line up featuring Grooverider, Bailey, Doc Scott, Ray Keith, Bryan Gee and AI, the night was certain to be a success, and is now a bi-monhtly event at Rhythm Factory, where he is very much a junior resident alongside Grooverider, Doc Scott and Ezm.
His second night, Real, begins soon, and is an attempt to create a new platform for grime in London. He'll be warming up again, this time for the likes of Elijah & Skilliam, Spooky, DOK, Rude Kid, Faze Miyake, highly-rated newcomer Conducta, and fellow resident Lu'e-B, who'll be launching the Digitally Disturbed Audio record label.
Apart from anything bassline-oriented, Default Disruptor is also a keen lover of house and techno, and pretty much most forms of music. He hopes to while away the rest of his time vaguely in the background of awesome things.
