Compound Records Seattle x Kremwerk Present...
UK // AMAR ⎮ Metalheadz ⎮ Exit ⎮ Tempa ⎮ Commercial Suicide
Hailed as one of the most distinctive artists in the scene, & widely credited as pioneer of the original half time drum & bass sound, Amit’s signature sub heavy dark brooding dubbed out beats, rolling breaks & aggressive synths have emanated from the sound systems of clubs & festivals across all continents he has performed in.
Cementing his presence in the early 2000’s with tracks such as ‘Roots’ (Commercial Suicide) and ‘The Tube’ (Inneractive), Goldie invited Amit to release on Headz in 2004, with the introduction of ominous tracks “Gatecrasher” and “Pirates”. The Metalheadz boss would later state in interviews that Amit was the main inspiration for Rufige Kru’s 2009 hurter Shanghai Dub.
2006 saw him release his debut album, the uncompromising ‘Never Ending’ LP on Commercial Suicide, with his next cutting edge 2011 LP ‘9 Times’ following, and the inauguration of his own long anticipated imprint AMAR In 2013.
His unique sound has also gained him releases on other prominent drum & bass labels such as Exit Records & Function.
Not only an innovator, Amit unwittingly dug deep foundations for a sound that’s inspired a whole generation of artists & had more relevance year-on-year since its establishment over 10 years ago.
