The boss behind Combat Recordings, Stormfield DJs, produces and performs audio-visual live sets at various parties, and also runs the regular Riddim’n‘Bruise radio show on Sub FM.
A DJ with 18 years of experience under his belt, Stormfield’s sonic influences are rooted in the early 90’s strains of electronica and abstract techno like LFO, Aphex Twin, Black Dog, Autechre. Taking on board the early junglism of Photek and Source Direct, he later carried these influences proudly through other forms of music like electro, dubstep and hard breakage.
Later exposure to the works of Scorn and a 4-year stint living near Brixton’s colossal dub soundsystems left him with a pathological need for chest-crushing basslines, and thus Combat Recordings was formed in 2004.
2010 saw him evolve Combat A.V., fusing the label’s visual and sonic elements in the form of improvised live audio visual performances across Europe like the Norberg Fest (Sweden), REC Fest (Spain), Freeze Fest / Anti Surveillance Benefit (Czech), Tacheles (Berlin), FutureEverything Fest UK (with Jesu/Dead Fader), Glade (with Broken Note), Bangface Weekender UK (with Scorn), Athens Video Art Fest and Luben Fest (Greece).
His Smashment mix became the first dancehall jungle AV mix to be featured on the Electronic Explorations podcast.
Ever busy, he also teaches A.V. and ran a workshop on audio visual technology at the Norberg Festival
