Music Artist – Biography
Hailing from London, UK, enigmatic electronic producer and DJ, Scaramanga Silk has had his work described as ‘Electronic Mastery’ (Verity Sharp, Late Junction, BBC Radio3). This futuristic artist creates innovative music with a unique flavour.
Having released Singles, EPs and Remixes in recent years for Micro Spiral Recordings, Kin-Aesthetic Recordings and Adventures In Dubbing, we are now graced with his debut album ‘Designer Scribble’. The record sees the artist develop his sound into a work of experimental electronics that encompasses ambient, techno, drum & bass, funk, latin, hip-hop, dub and breakbeat. Scaramanga Silk is a graduate of the rave scene, which sees his tracks fuse club sounds with leftfield production resulting in heritage hybrids that are fresh and distinct.
In 2008, Scaramanga Silk surfaced with the rave-breakbeat number ‘Choose Your Weapon’ on an ultra-limited promo 12” single. Collectors now seek out this rare record after it appeared on eBay for £500. Follow-up release ‘Sacrifice’ went on to become the World Record for ‘Slowest Techno Track’ when it beat Daft Punk to the crown by a single BPM. Singles, EPs and Remixes have since showcased the artist to be a diverse individual covering styles from future-soul to beatronica to shimmering ambience and more. He is also the host of the ‘Badman Material’ Radio Show on Innov8 Radio where new music, exclusives and lost classics are celebrated.
