DJ Stingray brings rapid belters and advanced Electro to Tresor for Kern Vol. 4.
Sherard Ingram is a menacing node in the vast tangle of electronic music's history, present, and future. As DJ Stingray he propagates a seer-like, totalising concept of what it is to be engaged in thinking ahead by making people move.
The caustic, neuro-shock brand of apex electro that Ingram exhilaratingly pushes in every corner of the world has a motivating edge that's founded in his formative years, but it's one that only keeps the next page blank, with little clue of which way the swing will drill across the spectrum, gathering pace sufficient to redistribute definitions and test the limits.
Recent releases come from an enviable smattering of crucial labels both genre-centric and experimental, as DJ Stingray overhauls the very premise of the Detroit legacy he had a hand in writing, and on which others comfortably sit. With an oeuvre that touches base from Planet E to Presto!?, and from Mahogani Music to Reflex, his justified attempts at exiting the gravitational pull of genre tropes anticipate a dynamic edge of what we know is an ever-shifting centre.
DJ Stingray now responds with a mix released on physical format for Tresor's Kern CD series, utilising an arsenal of Aphex Twin, Drexciya, Dopplereffekt, Silent Servant and more over 60 minutes - full info below!
