Ross From Friends (brainfeeder)
Felix Weatherall aka Ross From Friends is a leading figure in the emergent lo-fi scene, which has evolved from an online community of fresh-faced producers into a palpable underground phenomenon.
His track ‘(Talk To Me) You’ll Understand’ surfaced online in 2015, and its artful blend of hazy pads, trembling guitar lines and well-chosen vocal samples has become a sensation, amassing over a million plays on YouTube and a couple hundred thousand more across SoundCloud, with comment threads awash with impassioned tributes for its emotional resonance.
Hailing from Colchester, Weatherall grew up on a diet of late 80s Hi-NRG and Italo disco dance music under the influence of his Dad, who would travel with a soundsystem and DJ parties wherever he could. “My Dad's really big into dance music in a really big way,” as he puts it. Inspired by the sharp synthesisers, driving drum machines and positive moods of the music, he’s been making music in various forms from a young age, both in bands and solo, including a dubstep project under the name Munching Beans.
Five years ago he began to produce as Ross From Friends, carving out a style he was comfortable to pursue with intent, and from that point things have taken off. In 2015 he minted South London label Breaker Breaker with his debut release ‘Alex Brown’, a three-track EP of rough-edged house textures that threads fraught foundations and gliding melodies together in assured style, with the record quickly selling out an initial run.
With a handful of revered 12”s under his belt via Breaker Breaker, Lobster Theremin, Distant Hawaii, Magicwire and a 10” on Molten Jets. “Family Portrait” showcases Weatherall’s ability to shift and evolve, moving from the world of lo-fi to the world of FlyLo, demonstrating a versatility exemplified by the ease in which he can switch between playing shows with Little Dragon and holding down a peak-time slot in Berghain’s Panorama Bar.
Enlisting the skills of two friends to build out his arrangements into a live show, John Dunk on sax and keys and Jed Hampson on electric guitar, the band have been touring extensively at venues and festivals around the world including The Roundhouse, BBC Maida Vale Studios for Radio 1’s Residency, Primavera Sound and Parklife to name a few.
After being signed to BRAINFEEDER in 2018 he released his first LP "Family Portrait" to high critical acclaim.
