For over a decade, Edinburgh based musician Gavin Sutherland has been producing and DJing under the Fudge Fingas moniker. Music has always been and continues to play a central-role in his life. Deeply inspired by the House sounds pioneered by Larry Heard and Frankie Knuckles, he merges a multitude of genres in his work. He has a flair for left-of-centre Jazz meanderings, deep and soulful House jams right on through to jagged-edge Techno. When he’s not channeling grooves in some shape or form, he works at a record store and nurtures an unhealthy obsession with vinyl.
A front runner for the Firecracker label since it’s inception in 2004, he supplies to them a certain finesse in House, his debut album in 2011 is a listen to be reckoned with. He has also released more uptempo Techno-centric material on Mancunian Trus’me’s Prime Numbers imprint. Not too fond of the limelight he has released under the pseudonym ‘Vin Sanders’ in the past. With original material in the pipeline and having mentioned the possibility of more undisclosed aliases popping up in the future, Fudge Fingas has truly come into his own.
Hyp 178 is a airy breeze of House sophistication, swirling Disco and Old Skool rave nostalgia…
Fudge Fingas plays b2b with Linkwood at notsosilent roof party in London on 8th June. Info and tickets HERE.
