Devilman is a side project of DJ Scotch Egg (born Shigeru Ishihara), a Japanese producer of chiptune / gabber / industrial noise music based in Berlin.
Shige started out making improvised noise music performing under the name Shiez 2000 and later contributed to a few little known groups including; Megadrive, Noony Banoony, and The Fighting Seizure Robots Busking Crew. After moving to Brighton from Tokyo, he founded Brighton’s premier breakcore/noise night Wrong Music with friends Henry Collins (aka Shitmat) and Matt (Roger Species). Collins took Shige under his wing, & convinced him to use his Game Boy to create gabber tracks. He has released music on the Wrong Music label, Adaadat, Junior Aspirin Records, 3 by 3 Music and now Combat. At a recent gig in Berlin he jokingly said “I don’t know how to write music, I just make distortion”, but the opposite is true; he harnesses powerful analogue distortion and crafts it perfectly to absolutely devastating dancefloor effect.
