Young Habersham has achieved more in 5 years than most hope to achieve in a lifetime: he’s played in over 19 cities worldwide, from Australia to Turkey, Budapest to Amsterdam, throughout the States, Mexico and Central America; he has over 30 releases under his belt on labels such as Audio Therapy, Global Underground, Proton, and his own Blueprint & Lobotomy imprints; his music has been featured on over 10 of the world’s most prestigious compilations & mix CDs such as Renaissance (x3), Global Underground, Bedrock Breaks (x2), Distinctive’s Y4K, Balance, et al. And in 2005 he recorded 2 exclusive radio mixes for both Annie Nightingale’s BBC 1 and John Digweed’s ‘Transitions’ shows as well as numerous mixes aired on international radio shows in Germany, Turkey, Hungary, Australia’s JJJ, and throughout America.
Not bad for a 24 year old. He’s done a “fantastic job,” you might say. Damon would disagree. He hasn’t done enough – not nearly enough.
Now he’s getting his hands dirty with technology – filthy dirty. He’s not only creating music that tears down boundaries, but he’s dabbling with creating full original visual and other sensory stimulation. Habersham is shedding the limitations of turntables and CDJs, moving towards a completely unique live performance incorporating various media forms into his live show.
Some listeners have described his music as subtle, twisted underground music. Some say it’s a bit too ‘weird.’ Others cannot even find the words to describe his taste, and this is what makes him most proud. Perhaps the greatest of compliments is when an artist cannot be labeled or boxed in, which explains why Damian Lazarus, James Holden, Pig & Dan, Phil K, Lee Burridge, James Zabiela, Dave Seaman, Nic Fanciulli, Ozgur Can and even Slam give heavy rotation to his selections.
