Biography

Moulding together all sorts of murky techno spasms, post-punk jolts and ambient, acid house throbs, producer Daniel Avery has been a mainstay of London's club scene since the 2000s and continues on his mission to "make music for people to lose themselves to."

Growing up in Bournemouth on the south coast of England, he was a typical rock fan in his youth and started DJ-ing at indie clubs when he was 18 before discovering Kraftwerk and New Order albums in his father's record collection and falling in love with the short-lived electro-clash scene that pitted new wave weirdness with disco flamboyance and thumping techno pulses. Inspired by producers such as Erol Alkan and Richard Fearless, he moved to London to work in the Pure Groove Records shop and by the age of 21 he was DJ-ing at Fabric nightclub and learning the ropes from another hero Andrew Weatherall. He also worked with synth-pop duo Filthy Dukes and with producer Lionrock and came to wider attention when he put together the popular 'Fabriclive 66' compilation album in 2012, and did remixes for Little Boots, Metronomy and Hercules & Love Affair.

With a sound dubbed machine funk, he ran the Divided Love club nights at Fabric and his debut album 'Drone Love' in 2013 drew from minimal Detroit techno rhythms and whirring, hypnotic, house big beat trips, and featured vocalist Kelly Lee Owens and producer James Robertson. He went on to curate a compilation album for the 'DJ-Kicks' series and played acclaimed sets across the world but returned to London to set up a studio in a shipping container on the banks over River Thames overlooking the city's financial district. There he recorded 'Song for Alpha' in 2018, his first album for Mute Records.
