Hailing from North London, Unorthodox is a DJ/Producer who’s interest in house music reaches back to the early 90s. His extensive music collection takes in the crème of the Acid and US House scene and boasts cuts from the lines of 95 North, DJ Disciple, Steve Silk Hurley, Dave Cammacho and Todd Terry. The latter’s dub of Martha Wash’s soul classic “Carry On” in particular influenced Unorthodox to start producing music.
Unorthodox is a London-based DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist who makes dancefloor driven house with a focus on progressive and electronica. An avid synth, vinyl and drum machine collector, he draws upon a detailed understanding of both the music he loves and its associated production gear.
Previous work has been supported by Carl Cox, Route94, Danny Howard, Patrick Topping and Phonique, whilst his debut E.P on Glasgow Underground – Hold You - is garnering early interest from artists including Roger Sanchez and Mat.Joe.
His sound inherits catchy vocals, hypnotic basslines and club-ready structures to form infectious tracks with meticulous technique. Having worked with a number of respected songwriters, the time has come to focus on his own project exploring classic house sentiments with a fresh palette.
A remix of Kollektiv Turmstrasse’s ‘Sorry I Am Late’ led to a joint project with Paul Ursin, resulting in ‘The Oscillator’ on his 2017 Antiskating EP, whilst a remix of BBC Radio 1’s most played track of 2017 - Disciples’ ‘On My Mind’ - has been picking up traction of late.
With remixes of George Privatti and Jonas Rathsman also forthcoming this year, Unorthodox shows no signs of slowing down for 2018.
