The name Satellite Dub may conjour up images of other worlds, but behind the psuedonym is Mr Craig Brown, a man with his feet firmly on planet earth.
The past few years have seen a complete change of direction for the former guitarist. Putting his five string to the side, Craig decided to immerse himself deep into the world of synthesizers, samplers and music software, focused on learning how to use (and abuse) the cutting edge technology he had to hand.
Satellite Dub's core sound is an ever evolving layer of electronic textures, synths, drums, and melody. Pulsing sonic rhythms are woven together by rolling, delicate hooks to make up this unique interstellar soundscape.
Whilst influenced by such peers as Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, Death In Vegas, Autechre and DJ Shadow, Craig's passion for the more obscure also draws comparisons to such styles of music as Krautrock, Psychedelia and the work of a number of Avant Garde composers.
