As we reach our final release of the year we want to take the time to say a big thank you to all the supporters new and old. Without you guys, and not forgetting the artists we have featured this year, Instigate Recordings would not be what it is today.
INSTi011 comes from none other then one half of the production duo Valac. His debut release on Instigate showcases a more technical side to his productions and over the last few months we have seen Luke (Binary) go from strength to strength, landing himself a deal with the highly regarded Encrypted Audio. Since his first outing with his solo project on ENC - Luke has proven his talents as a producer by not limiting himself to just one style around the 140 tempo range. His release with us showcases some of the earlier stages of his productions as Binary, focusing on that minimal heavy, bass driven tech style and swung percussion with nail bitting reese design.
Raised in Denver, Colorado - Luke first found dubstep through and early affiliation with the well known bass music events organisation Sub.Mission. His introduction to DJing came in his later school years, through involvement in local DJ competitions. It wasn’t long until he caught the production bug and citing influences such as Distance, Plastician, Toasty, Pinch and Biome we can see how his formative years in producing have taken him to the styles he’s pushing out today.
Tech, triplets, tension and trauma all describe the sounds that form the Deprivation EP, one for the dark room heads this release is sure to cause some damage on dance floors worldwide. Featuring a collaboration with the rising star in the deep scene, Dillard - Binary shows versatility in repetition, crafting a beautifully evolving collection of tracks, each one showcasing a different vibe and style while remaining in the same vein
