Orphan101 versus Wikipedia

08.02.11, Words by: Charlie Jones

Orphan101 is a Bristol producer whose take on bass music dances decidedly in the dark. His tracks simmer with industrial weight, moving through shadowy techno propulsion, all underpinned by thick bass and moody atmospheres.

Following on from the brooding rumbles of last month’s ‘Propa/Disemble’ 12” on Apple Pips, he’s now gearing up to release his ‘Into You’ EP on Saigon Recordings, from which a snippet of the first track is available to download here. Below, he selects a reconnaissance aircraft urban legend, crystal structures and Dave Chappelle as key wikipedia reading.
