Distal

Distal is an already established 28­year­old veteran of Electronic music. Forgetting bpm and genre to the masses, he relies only on his signature sound alone to leave its mark. He produces a wide array of moods, tempos and rhythms, often taking influences from his early childhood love of techno, jungle and hardcore.

Before entering the world of production head on Distal spent a few years under the microscope at Georgia State University researching a sensational auditory phenomenon called Synesthesia. One day while digging through break­core records he stumbled upon a sound that would inspire him to launch his production career (Pinch – Punisher on Planet Mu). Using his newfound passion, traditional teachings and his scientific studies in unison he ran head first into the studio winter of 2007.

In early 2010 Distal started his own label ‘Embassy Recordings’ with childhood friend Ethan Anderson (MITE). Soon there after in the summer of 2010 he would receive his inaugural physical vinyl release with the legendary label Soul Jazz Records. This would be the launch pad for his career landing him releases on stalwart labels such as Tectonic and Tube10 and gigs at places like the world renowned Fabric in London touring globally alongside artists like Pearson Sound and Africa Hi Tech. From his initial release in 2010 until now in 2012 Distal has put out almost a dozen 12” vinyl releases and that many more digital releases, collaborations and remixes for prolific labels like Frite Nite and Trouble & Bass. But his biggest accomplishment will come in the form of a 14 track Album on Tectonic in the spring appropriately named ‘Civilization’.

Looking ahead Distal is already thinking about future projects, and how to genuinely push things forward and farther than he has in the past. He lives to create, expand and invent. Hopefully one day leaving a legacy on the world as one of the most in demand artists North America has ever seen.
