SUNIL SHARPE2018 Artists
Sunil Sharpe is a shining light in the resurgence of underground techno. Gaining an enviable reputation for his dj sets in the early ’00s, Sunil soon received an invitation to play at Berlin’s Tresor Club in 2001, marking the start of an intensive involvement in the techno scene. Whilst being a uniquely talented DJ (and longtime dj tutor at a thirdlevel college), Sunil also produces various strains of techno that have appeared on labels symbolic of the genre’s rougher edge: Black Sun Records, Komisch, Inner Surface, Trensmat, Violet Poison and most notably Blawan & Pariah’s Sheworks.
Sunil’s gig schedule has increased considerably in the last few years, playing at clubs like Berghain (Berlin), The Hydra (London), Concrete (Paris), Sub Club (Glasgow) and dotting off many other countries along the way. He was also dj of choice on both Karenn European tours, the last of which was marked by his now classic Boiler Room set in London.
Sunil has also (alongside DeFeKT) been responsible for exciting new studio project ‘Tinfoil’, that has quickly found favour with djs of many persuasions. He also began a recent collaboration with AnD as ADSS, the first track of which has appeared on Brothers. Additionally, Sunil runs the wonderfully erratic Earwiggle imprint that has built a dedicated following, releasing new names and old heroes into the battlefield.
