Ford has been and continues to be a lynchpin in the development of the Bristol sound, an area that should never be underestimated for its role in electronic music. Over the years, it has been pivotal to various movements, all sharing a common thread of dubby, drugged-out sounds running through them. The British city was massive for jungle, crucial for dubstep, but is now recognized mostly for a contemporary scene revolving around but a few artists.
Back in 2011 he founded Livity Sound, at which point he has already been manning Punch Drunk for several years. The former is now home to Kowton and Asusu, as well as the likes of Hodge and Randomer on the Dnuos Ytivil sub-label, and has fostered the development of the post-dubstep sound: a mixture of bass music, techno and dub. Aside from his efforts in putting out other’s music, Ford's own productions have also been a driving force in the scene.
Ford has kindly shared a three-hour recording of his recent DJ set at Bremen's DTKO party—a mix that captures the broad spectrum of sounds that somehow add up to Peverelist. Stream it or download below.
