1990 - Present
Recording artist & producer with a discography of more than 50 records
Worldwide touring performer / DJ
Record label founder
I record and perform as DJ C, a purveyor of global bass and experimental party music.
I've racked up a discography including more than 50 records on labels like XL Recordings, Ninja Tune, Soul Jazz, and others, and have shared production credits with the likes of Diplo, Quincy Jones, MIA, and Gregory Isaacs. I've also toured the world performing at house parties, night clubs, underground raves, and festivals with artists from Lee Scratch Perry, to Squarepusher, to Flosstradamus.
I founded the Mashit record label in 2003, which was featured as a “Label of the Month” by legandary BBC Radio 1 host, John Peel, and have released more than 20 records by artists such as Chrissy Murderbot, Bong-Ra, and MC Zulu.
I also co-founded the Toneburst Collective with DJ /rupture, an event production group staging adventurous multimedia extravaganzas in alternative venues, and providing an early platform for storied underground artists like Kid606, Hrvatski, and Aaron Spectre.
I went on to co-found the Beat Research series of events along with DJ Flack where we developed the Boston-bounce sound. The weekly club-nights played host to some of the best DJs and producers of underground bass music in the world, and gave a number of young luminaries their first gigs. The long list of guests included Eclectic Method, DJ Rashad, edIT (The Glitch Mob), Ghislain Poirier, Kingdom, and Plastician.
