Daniel Avery

For Daniel Avery, the recording of his second album Song for Alpha (in his studio in a repurposed shipping container situated on the curve of the River Thames) proved a cathartic release from the chaos and white noise that seemed to seep in from the outside world–whether it was wild geo-political shifts or favorite club spaces unfairly threatened with closure. It was inspired largely by his transient life spent between nightclubs, flights, the passenger seats of cars and hotel rooms, cementing a worldwide reputation as one of the defining techno DJs of the decade.
