The latest Electric Independence features an interview with Andy Jenkinson, aka Ceephax:
There’s no one quite like our mate Andy Jenkinson, aka Ceephax, aka Ceephax Acid Crew. He’s one of the last great D.I.Y masters working in electronic music and he’s a full-on modern day renaissance man, who still uses the same old school tools (remember Amigas? Me neither) to ply his many trades.
Primarily known for what he’s done for the “acid” genre, Ceephax also dips his toes into hip-hop, breakbeat Italo and even some ambient; always with his trusty Roland analog weapons by his side, creating an impressive and expansive output of material. It’s like a big psychedelic feast for your ears.
He got signed at his first-ever live show at the age of 17 and throws some of the most epic and outrageous parties/raves in the UK. We traveled to East London where he gave us a tour of his bedroom studio and shared some of the influences behind his 8-Bit sound, his curious predilection for ancient video games, arcade carpets and novelty knits.
