Darkness is to space what silence is to sound; the interval. Outsider (the solo project created by Jon Camilleri), breathes life into some of the most animated styles on the low end spectrum of sound.
Focusing on Restoring Filth in the Bassline, this musical virtuoso is evading traditional genre rules with his drive to negate boundaries on his music. Seeking to delve into the dark unknown fringes, his sounds touch on anything and everything under a wide BPM spectrum – bass being the foundation. Hollow heeded tones and circuit bending basslines, rugged and raw, one becomes sensitive to the silhouettes of sounds that make up an Outsider composition.
Exceedingly accomplished and highly competent in his craft, Outsider's ominous sounds are bolstered by his 15 years spent as a professional DJ. A shift in focus to heighten his capacity in music production has resulted in a flurry of activity, not unnoticed by the bass scene. Catching the attention of copious masters already well versed and revered, this shadowed and shrouded producer has received accolades from many including Truth (and their Deep, Dark & Dangerous label), Stylust Beats as well as Leon Switch. The latter of which hand-picked Outsider as the 1st place winner in the Official Leon Switch Remix contest, which resulted in an official release with Leon Switch himself.
Consistently increasing his repository of self-produced works, Outsider’s production continues to appear on releases from noteworthy, forward-thinking record labels. With releases on, but not limited to, record labels such as Sleeveless Records, and as well as Really Good Recordings, it truly is a testament to the ferocious hard work and dedication that Outsider has become so well known for.
Watch for more from this artist as he inflicts his dark and atmospheric sounds upon the world. So the darkness shall be the light, the stillness the dancing.
