STEALTH presents…

BILLY TURNER (Of Unsound Mind / Kneaded Pains)

Billy Turner is the rising UK artist whose bracing strain of techno is fast turning heads. From Laurent Garnier to Tiga and Scuba, this young DJ and producer is finding favour from an array of figureheads.

Originating from Crawley, West Sussex, 23-year-old Turner started out as a music-obsessed teenager experimenting with guitars and drums – citing The Streets, Nas, and Frank Ocean as earlier influences. His love for electronic music became all-consuming after a spontaneous trip to Ibiza with his brother, where chance meetings with Skream and Dense & Pika would later have an impact on his career.

After traveling the world Turner entered an intense period of reflection that coincided with record collecting and self-taught production. He found himself channelling his side in his music, and what emerged was a steely and visceral techno sound far beyond his years – one that drew inspiration from the work of Truncate, Anthony Parasole, and Planetary Assault Systems.

A turning point for Turner’s came in 2016 when he sent Skream a track that was met with elation. The pioneering Croydon producer has been a vocal proponent of Turner ever since, having released his two EPs to date on the Of Unsound Mind label: 2016’s Midnight EP and the Rosebud EP, released in February 2017.

A voracious creator, Turner has a deluge of material at his disposal, having provided 100% production mixes for Monki on BBC Radio 1Xtra and more recently a guest show on Rinse FM. His tracks – hypnotic, throbbing, and filled with subtle detail – have garnered club support from Alan Fitzpatrick, Danny Tenaglia, and Kenny Glasgow, with his thunderous DJ style earning him sets at Nottingham’s Stealth club and London institution, fabric.

As 2017 unfolds, Turner has several projects in the works, including a collaborative EP with Skream on Of Unsound Mind and a forthcoming EP on Dense & Pika's Kneaded Pains imprint. Brooding and emotive, Billy Turner’s music is still in its embryonic stages. The next few years will undoubtedly see this precocious talent reach greater heights.
