Raised in rural England and exposed to a wide range of music from a young age, E-coli became involved in the local free party scene by the time he was 18. Before long he was organising large parties as a member of Jigsore Soundsystem and performing his unique mash-up sets to increasingly growing crowds.
In 2010 he started producing and has not looked back, developing his own identity and pushing a new gypsy style using samples of live musicians from all over the world combined with heavy electronic beats. Sometimes more polka than tekno, and always with a turbo assault of drum break carnage, his music is un-ashamedly silly yet completely dance-floor orientated.
He has released vinyls on Jigsore Sound and Amen4Tekno, and has digital releases on numerous net labels around the world. Forthcoming vinyl releases are planned for Irritant Records and Jigsore, along with collabs with some of the biggest names and best upcoming acts on the scene. He is also one of the founders of Balter Festival, a three day multi-genre underground music festival in the UK.
Whether playing at sunrise on a beach in Croatia or in the woods of Devon, his well-crafted live sets draw crowds in with infective gypsy melodies and hardcore kick drums.
His recently released ‘Sick Gypsy Mix’ gives a glimpse into what to expect from his unusual world of gypsytek.
