Biography of Robin Thurston
Music has always been a very important part of Robin’s life and he has been DJing now for over twelve years. Based in London, he is making strides to very much establish his name on the scene with his unique blend of progressive house and techno. October 2008 saw Robin make his debut for The Gallery at Ministry of Sound, playing the Halloween night featuring John 00 Fleming, Andy Moor, Gareth Emery and Sister Bliss. February 2009 then saw him booked to play Electronic Sessions’ third birthday Thames boat party alongside Jon O’Bir and Niklas Harding. Since then Robin has continued to play on a regular basis for both Electronic Sessions and The Gallery, supporting some of his favourite artists in the process including Hernan Cattaneo, Danny Howells, BT, Jimmy Van M, Dave Seaman, Guy J, 16 Bit Lolitas, King Unique, Marc Marzenit and Michael Cassette.
Prior to moving to London, Robin lived in Buenos Aires in 2006 and 2007. There, he played alongside Luis Callegari at Clubzone, La Diosa and was invited to play at many other parties across the Argentine capital. In the South American summer of 2007 he relocated to Uruguay where he played in Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio. In February 2007 he promoted his own night FireLine with local DJ Jorge Dighiero in the Salon Brava of the Torreon in Punta del Este. On his return to Buenos Aires he played at the Ideas Quimikas parties at Soma nightclub, aka Suipacha 842.
Not resting on his laurels, 2010 saw Robin make his first forays into the world of production. Collaborating with Dave Horne, debut track ‘Crossroads’ was released in August of that year via Vancouver-based Progressive Grooves Records. The track was well received on the dance floor and enjoyed airings on both Frisky and Proton Radio.
Robin has since teamed up with long-time friend Michael Sadler, aka Sweet Cacophony, to form a production duo focusing on the deeper, darker, more experimental side of all things techno. So watch out for forthcoming productions.
