Producing and performing electronic music under the name ‘Defazed’. He built a following in the underground dance scene in the UK from 2004, with several 12″, digital releases and international live shows. During his 10 year career, Defazed’s musical style has evolved to span many different genres, from Avante-Garde Electronica to Neurofunk Drum & Bass. More recently he has been focusing on developing his own blend of Psychedelic-tinged Glitch-Hop. Defazed’s signature sound comes from his unique balance of dancefloor-oriented beats and basslines, mind-warping melodies, cutting-edge sound design, and futuristic technical beat programming. During this time Defazed has released material with numerous highly regarded underground electronic music labels including Adapted Records, Riddim Fruit, The Glitch Shop, Trust In Music, Overtech and Ammunition Recordings to name a few. His other music projects have included Metaphra – a bass-driven downtempo/psy-dub act with a female vocalist and c0ma-K – an ongoing project with a male vocalist exploring the darker and stranger side of industrial music, philosophy and politics.
