Drum Engine is the latest incarnation of my recording escapades, having previously worked and released as Dixie, and Red Hat. Based in Sunny Worthing , Sussex England. Starting behind the decks back in the late 90's playing "progressive house" in Detroit - Spiritual home of Techno. Playing mainly private parties back here in the UK. Then came the Atari. That was it, an immediate shift to recording beats and funky bass lines followed together with a steep learning curve. More samplers, effects and synths. With Brighton just down the road, weekends were spent mostly at the Zap on the seafront. Wicked days.With Dj contacts, and passionate friends some low volume vinyl followed. I almost broke even. Early music influences were very much New Wave Electronic with the likes of Devo, Talking Heads, The Normal. Later came the exposure to "House Music", again the Detroit Techno sound, and the Chicago House sound. UK influences were Leftfield, Underworld,Trans Global Underground at the end of an Eve,...Sasha and Digweed were inspirational Dj's. So onto today, maybe a slightly harder house sound, but not "Hard House". Always looking for the hands in the air break, or that build that just explodes at the right moment. I've spent enough evenings on the dance floor to know what that feels like. Drum Engine is coming your way with collaborations with female singers, more releases, both solo and remixes.
