The reason his music can stand so comfortably at both ends of electronic music’s poles is due to his unique vision as a producer. A vision that was forged at the age of four, spending time each day with his stepfather in the recording studio pushing buttons and turning knobs on analog synths and Atari sequencers. Over the years, Short has also showed his daring presence as a DJ and live act at numerous events including the Cecille & Oslo showcase at the WMC (Winter Music Conference) 2009, the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival) after parties in 2008 & 2009, Lovefest (San Francisco) 2008 & 2009, the SAMC (South American Music Conference) in Ecuador 2008, as well as other events in Berlin, Barcelona, Italy, Munich, Laussane, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, and Los Angeles. In 2010, Short has follow-up tours of South America and of Europe planned as well as releases on Auralism and Blipswitch Digital.
He is also actively exhibiting his growing collection of unreleased material – adding to his already extensive discography. Some of this material includes dub oriented sounds co-produced with Dub Mission founder DJ Sep as well as a full-length album. His highly refined live sets are sure to make a big splash this year with an array of fat, analog synth lines and cutting edge drum machine programming. Few contemporaries are as bold as Short, with a sound best described as a dense, heavily layered thicket of techno containing bold contrasts of gentle mid range tones, deep space harmonics, and hefty bass surprises.
