Ai Ai · Uk

Datassette, a man perhaps best known for constructing his own fine blend of emotive computer-funk and rubbery analogue electro, aims to entertain the brain and move the feet.

Based in London and active for over 15 years, he is an avid collector of obscure space disco, synth-funk instrumentals, and brain-melting library music gems.

Initially self-releasing throughout the 2000s, he’s more recently found homes on labels like Shipwrec, Apollo and Echoecho.

Prolific but always of the highest quality, Datasette is one of the most highly regarded electro producers out of the UK.

Datassette’s sets always deliver a genre-hopping intoxicating mix of old and new, spanning several decades and BPMs while keeping a

solid backbone of heavily syncopated funk.

From lush ambient textures to C64-inspired jams, onto more complex Aphex / BOC style thinkpieces, his devotion to the electro sound remains gloriously undimmed.
