[Mix]: Swarm Intelligence – NovaFuture Blog Visual Mix 003

 

DJ:
Swarm Intelligence

 

Introduction:
Dublin-born producer and DJ, currently living in Berlin. Releases on Acre, Acroplane, Ad Noiseam and most recently on Voitax

Swarm Intelligence is quickly building up a name for habitually reducing darkened basements to ruins. Blending ambient, rhythmic noise and industrial sounds with broken rhythms, he has captured the attention of techno and noise fiends alike.
From droned-out ambience and densely layered field recordings, right through to distorted beats and industrial-edged basslines, Swarm Intelligence has honed his sound over releases on Acroplane, Acre, Ad Noiseam, Voitax, Instruments of Discipline and most recently Earwiggle, where he just released his latest 12″ called “Flatlands”.

His live set is a fearsome mix of clattering drums, snarling, abrasive distortion and dissonant textures and has seen him perform at a wide variety of events – from the infamous Maschinenfest to Boiler Room.
