Indigo is a Manchester based producer who has shot to notoriety in the past 3 years with a string of essential genre defying releases on his own Mindset Recordings label, On The Edge, and more recently slotting into the Autonomic sound with a sublime track on the recent ‘Mosaic Vol 1′ compilation from Exit Recordings. Tipping this off with his remix of Illumsphere for Tectonic, the scene is set for 2011 to be his biggest year to date.
Manchester based artist Indigo has been blurring the ethereal boundaries of Electronica since his first 12″ release on his own label ‘Mindset’ in 2008. While some find a steady groove and settle into a formula, he has been evolving with releases and remixes on a selection of diverse labels, holding a strong foundation with his own imprint. Taking all tempos and throwing them into a diverse melting pot of sonics, and performing memorable DJ sets to the same level of eclecticism.
His unique productions caught the ears of electronic music visionary dBridge who has gone on to include the Indigo track ‘Time’ on the Mosaic Music Vol.1 compilation alongside a slew of well established artists. Indigo music has also featured heavily in the Autonomic podcasts and more releases are scheduled on Exit Records in 2011.
Mindset debuted emerging talents AnD, Kowton, xxxy, HxdB and Hatti Vatti while allowing established artists Synkro and 16Bit a platform for their more introspective work. With this unique take, Mindset releases gained worldwide support from seminal musical prodigies Skream, Brendon Moeller, Illumsphere, Headhunter & Mary Anne Hobbs, airing on Rinse FM & Radio 1. Following debuts on Mindset, artists have gone on to release on influential labels Exit, Autonomic, Tectonic, Med School, Fabric, Critical, Keysound, Idle Hands, Frozen Border & Horizontal Ground.
2011 has already proved to be a promising year for his inventive music. Influential online electronic store Boomkat have been fervent supporters of Indigo music and as they have noted ‘Ultimately, in a scene sometimes stifled by homogeneity, Indigo’s non-standardised and passionate music stands out a mile’.
