Hefty has always had a passion for music and has always had an eclectic taste. His love for music didn’t manifest itself in the form of djing/producing until a few years back when he was introduced by a university friend to the London underground party scene. Blown away by the exciting venues, amazing music and incredible atmosphere he was drawn in to the underground and never left. After a years of parties it dawned on him, this is what he wanted to do.
He left university and bought his decks and never looked back. He owes a lot to the now legendary “PICKLE” parties which defined his bass fuelled dark Hefty style. Priding himself on not playing the obvious and keeping to his own style he managed to carve a name for himself playing evil electrobotic electro and hefty tek breaks, his sets known for their dark sounds, hefty bass and varied track selection.
Over the years he has built up a collection of many genres of electronic music from dubstep to techno and is more than happy spinning a set of a variety of genres. He has had the opportunity to warm up for Marco V at Turnmills, he has played at The Gallery also at Turnmills and has also played at many other London clubs including Heaven, Hidden, 414, Electrowerkz, The Telegraph, The Coronet and 333.
Currently Hefty is venturing into new territory with druggy bass driven dark minimal tek and techno, incorporating aspects of the various genres he enjoys. Spending a year working hard in his studio he has learned the art of production and has created his own unique style of dark abstract bass fuelled hypnotic minimal, which is receiving interest in the minimal scene. With requests for remixes and collaborations flooding in and with various tracks being released soon Hefty is determined to unleash his dark sounds on the public and continue to explore the realms of minimal and techno.
