Spotlight: Subnote

Subnote is a 22-year-old Manchester/Newcastle based DJ and producer that focuses on dance music genres such as house, and techno as his core style. He started mixing records aged 14 and has been producing music for around 5-6 years. He was brought up in Newcastle but recently moved to Manchester for its great music scene. His music is influenced by hundreds of different styles. When he was younger, he went through just about every genre and every style out there. These days, he is majorly influenced by dub, early dubstep, techno, house, tech house, and more mellow stuff.

He has always been a fan of more ambient music like compositions by Brian Eno. He describes himself as a ‘big nerd’ when it comes to sound design and special effects as well, and always tries to incorporate this in his work. Recording natural ambience is also one of his hobbies. When he first started producing, his aim was to create tracks that most likely wouldn’t be played in a night club but that soon evolved into him really wanting to make a fat sound that people will get down to and enjoy. His main goal is to keep producing vibes that people enjoy and can really dance to.
