      Having signed to Phantasy in 2014, Kamera has already begun on another, altogether different outsider's journey, creating unique and uncompromising music that aims to exist in it's own world, in it's own form, and it's own context.

      The necessary alias of an established recording artist, Kamera practises the freedom of production without the pressures of dancefloor expectation. Nonetheless, the sound thus far pushes in a deeply physical direction, albeit one influenced by recording techniques, process and experimentation as much as melody. Influenced by bands such as Sunn o))), Fugazi, Autechre, Sabres of Paradise, and indeed any music that "generally doesn't necessarily make a lot of sense", Kamera's rich sonic space was part born in rural Yorkshire, eventually coming to fruition in the wintery Majorca sunshine.

      Despite the audible drone of a post punk and hardcore heritage, Kamera's layers of noise have already proven irresistible on the most locked in and open minded dancefloors, building around unusual grooves that recall techno at it's most industrial and thematically ambitious. Following on from his debut EP, 'Arc', and a remix of Erol Alkan's own 'Sub Concious', January 2016 sees the release of 'Ventoux', inspired by the producer's pilgrimage up the unforgiving French mountain of the same name.

      Exhibiting shades of the all encompassing attitude of early Warp as well as a tinge of techno industrialism that might not sound out of you place in the hands of the most underground tastemakers, Kamera's enigmatic sound continues to unfold in unpredictable fashion.
