Deft

Despite his young age, Deft has already managed to establish a sonic personality in his music that has earned support from all the right people, in all the right places. Following a fairly standard musical upbringing – learning to play drums, playing in bands with cringe worthy names, drawing influences from hip hop and electronic music – Deft took the next logical, some might say cliché, step and started making music with software experimenting with drum loops and basic production, which lead him further down the rabbit hole before moving to Brighton where he began taking music more seriously. Returning to Croydon with a brain full of ideas and the confidence to put them into effect, Deft refined his sound and soon enough started to attract the attention of the right people. with releases on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label, WotNot, Rwina Records and Skullcandy, Seclusiasis, 2nd Drop, Hypercolour offshoot Space Hardware and Project Mooncircle.It’s upwards and onwards, there is simply no stopping Deft.
