 - The Polymer Drone

Bio:

It was in the confines of a preteen’s room where in which the first drones of The Polymer Drone were created. This San Diego native made his first mixes with his very own cassette tapes recorded off local radio stations. The somewhat introverted teenager soon found his favorite form of communication: dropping beats. Thanks to the restrictions of a strict curfew this transplanted OC resident dedicated late night hours to researching, creating, and essentially living music. His evolution from cassettes into drum and bass vinyl became the source of numerous backyard parties as well as stacks of noise violations. As the years passed, it became more and more apparent he had something to say. Moving from jungle beats to IDM, indie hip hop to electro and dub step, his opinions and beats got stronger and hit harder.The Polymer Drone began generating his own productions at 19, and the passion in his music was instantly palpable. His conceptions were created on the most basic of equipment; however his knowledge expanded swiftly, and within the first years was already helping other aspiring artists score their short films and videos. Influenced by his favorite artist, DJ Shadow, his roots are strong in down tempo and IDM, though dance and electronic mixes were the first exclusive mash-ups and original scores he focused on. Almost instantly the emphasis, as well as the experimentation expanded, inspiring gigs and parties from clubs to warehouses to music festivals all over southern California. By 2009, the Polymer’s resume expanded to include playing a vast variety of venues such as Avalon, Detroit Bar, Geisha House, Sutra, Envy Lounge, and 944 Magazine events, as well as placing high in the rankings of an array of remix contests, fully displaying his eclectic appeal. Amidst a social scene he felt out of place in, The Polymer Drone name finally emerged, specializing in dub step with more aggressive beats than he had ever created or played before.Spreading beats across Orange County was just the beginning for this ambitious producer. In 2010 the Polymer Drone was signed to Dubwar and was given the opportunity to more vastly spread his sounds at such gigs including playing The Elbo Room in San Francisco, repeated appearances at the Music Box including “La Beatdown”, “Seismic” in San Diego, Aura Nightclub LA, Avalon Hollywood, and the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. His sounds were addicting and craved,proven in the desert at “Mecca” Music Festival where an unexpected 3 hour set was demanded. In addition to the many performances the productions fortunately started coming. His first single as The Polymer Drone, “Dirty Little Secret,” was released in 2010. In early 2011, two more releases, “This Sound” and “Cape Town Slang” hit the market. Since, he has been signed to two more labels, Play Me Records and Dubline Recordings. His composition “The Ballad of Broken Souls” was solely picked and utilized by Insomniac for the trailer for the highly anticipated 1st annual “Escape from Wonderland”. The shows for the Polymer Drone have multiplied in size and demand in rapid time. Because of his promptly acquired respect, he’s been privileged to play beside such respected names as Ajaipai, Bare, Mark Instinct, Megalodon, Messinian, J Rabbit, Rokosonix, Vaski, and many more.
