Born in Bristol and raised on a healthy diet of classical music (european and asian), hip hop, and rnb. Bearface was part of the acid jazz scene as a percussionist. He moved to London in the late nineties where house music was the flavour of the clubs; this was the ignition switch for a decade of electronic musical pursuits.
After 10 years of producing records and being featured on labels such as Stealth, Defected and Vendetta records with Bana Kuba (a partnership with Dj Max Mistry)
Bearface is born.
'Hausmarchen', the first release on Bearface's own label, Beartone records, recently attracted the attention of many artists in the dance world. Danny Tenaglia was one of those giving his support. Attracted by the deep 90's style chugger that utilisessamples from old Bollywood records. It's appeal even reached South Africa; "FUCK YEAH HOUSE MUSIC. Hausmarchen is a madness! Playing this on 5FM (SA) and in my sets without a doubt." - Das Kapital (DK) (Das We Trust - 5FM), South Africa
What followed was a three month residency in New York. Taking inspiration from his time at Le Baron club, Bearface was to produce two dance floor bangers. 'Elevator' and 'Was what?'. Again worldwide support, including USA; "still hammering Tuba all over the place, love this" - Justin Sloe / Droog (USA), "Pick up the whole ep!" - Todd Edwards (USA), "My four stars goes to What Was which is a killer dance floor track." - Quentin Harris, (USA).
Choice remixing proved to be successful for Bearface, his arrival on the on the 'go to artist' remix list cemented by having his remix of Rami Ali's 'Forget' being played at ADE 2013 by Roger Sanchez and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzales at the official closing party.
Deciding to keep things deep and experimental 'Tuba' is created. A retro sounding house track with sampled voice from a 1970's bollywood soundtrack. This piece of music resonated with the big players and also with up and coming artist and a new generation of fans who want an alternative to the commercial sounding EDM.
