Everyone calls me Boogie and I've been working in music for over 22 years....
As a performer, songwriter and producer, I spent several years playing in indie rock bands in the late 80's and early 90's, adopting computer based recording and sequencing in it's infancy.
Finding the creative environment of the sound studio my true home, I moved into writing and recording music for theatre, contemporary dance and film in the mid 90’s, and have worked with (among others) Junction 33, Pointblank, Gieger Counter, Third Angel and the Litza Bixler dance company.
Although known for my electronic music (and currently in demand as a synthpop producer), I'm also a multi instrumentalist and record and fuse many different styles of music, both acoustic and synthetic. I live and work in Sheffield, England.
For any enquiries, drop me a line:
A selection of music written and produced by me from the last 15 years:
Crucify / Nights on fire / Move on Listen
Synthpop shapes from my band, The VL-Tones, featuring vocals by Emma Rossi
The unrepentant drunkards Listen
A folk lament fused with new technology and elements of pibroch highland pipe music.
Surfin on the break of day Listen
Jazzy-funky-dancy disco in a Jamiroquai, Daft Punk, Sade kinda way, cool, catchy and commercial.
From a theater score, a shared experience of growing up with UK dance culture.
Last Orders Listen
Another theater track, a very metal conversation between bass and guitar as it funks on down the hall.
Big bass jungle, strange and well spaced mania floating on a warm sea of aural fluid.
Neurotic drum and bass, frantic and relentless drums driving through a nerve edge alarm storm.
A finale, a piano says goodbye.
Peidmont guitar styling in a John Fahey-esq ramble.
Forest song Listen
Native American flute theme from an ecology based kids show, the big bird flies into the forest.
Write beautiful nonsense and let your mind go free
