Desto

Signal Life, Rwina, RBMA

Desto began his electronic music tuition at the age of three in 1984 listening to Kraftwerk.

He began experimenting with music production in 1993 with tracker software on a home computer and hundreds of underground tracks heard only by friends and 15 years later released his first record in 2008 inspired by the rising dubstep movement of the time. Desto’s musical influences range from hiphop to electro and proto techno to 80s computer game soundtracks and modern bass-driven musics like grime, Chicago footwork, 2-step garage and early dubstep as well as jungle.

Working with his wide palette of sounds Desto has dj'd and performed live around the world from Barcelona to New York, from Shanghai’s bass sanctuary Shelter to London's Fabric and pushing new sounds through his praised Signal Life imprint with TWWTH, Desto is at the forefront of forward-thinking bass music. His bi-weekly Signal Life show connects the underground dots for listeners worldwide.

Desto’s productions have gained dj support from the likes of Benji B (BBC Radio 1), DJ Shadow (Mo Wax, Island Records), Blackdown (Keysound), Mark Pritchard (Warp), Om Unit (Civil Music) and Slackk (Boxed) to name but a few."
