Death of Hi Fi was formed by Andy Hill in early spring 2010 after a previous project (The Mysteriou2) was put on temporary hiatus. After feeling the need to keep working and pushing the boundaries of his creativity, he wanted a new challenge. The challenge to create exciting music that drew deeply from the influence of many differing genres. Spurred on by the emergence of many sub-divisions of Hip Hop blended with Dub blended with Electronica blended with Glitch, he set about demoing songs that played between these lines. Starting life as an MC, Andy Hill AKA DJ AH:Kane AKA DJ Nikbeat began to craft beats purely for rhyming over using nothing more than an old tape to tape machine (pause tapes seem to be the starting place for so many) before graduating to a Tascam four track and Amiga computer with a cheap sampler add on. Deciding to concentrate on writing and producing rather than on vocals, Andy would buy himself an Akai MPC 3000 (just one of several of the MPC series he would own) and began to create his version of Hip Hop. The inevitable move into the all digital world of sequencers came after a friend lent him a copy of Cubase, its been steady progression since then. More evolution than revolution. Death of Hi fi indulge in the ancient and profane art of juxtaposing chilled Hip Hop with driving Industrial and melodic arp's with dirty glitch with a dash of Downtempo and just a splash of jazz. A journey exploring the dark and light side of the soul, the right side, the day and night side, the hold me tight and shut out the light side, unsigned hype, 89' flight, black or white side...... A DJ/Producer who collaborates freely to bring a new approach and askance view on a well worn, trodden and beaten down path. "....part Hip Hop, part Electronica, part Glitch, part Dub, Death of Hi Fi AKA Andy Hill plays between the lines of many sub genres......constantly evolving, pushing boundaries and contrasting the hard, industrial and atonal noise with sweet arpeggios, melodies and samples....."
