Up this week I’ve great pleasure in presenting Herd. An artist with a supreme ability for the deep sublime soundscape.

the showcase

Continuing in a similar vein to his Duck Eye Calm mix Herd returns with another 30 minute soundscape containing more of his ongoing Tangents series, which currently sits at close to 50 tracks.

This journey began on TheMixingbowl where productions pre Herd were uploaded for the members to offer feedback. This feedback helped develop the Herd sound and releases on netlabels FSOR (USA), Bumpfoot (Japan) and Entity (Belgium) followed. Radio exposure in the early days included the legendary Mary Anne Hobbs show for Radio One:


‘Deeply mysterious – this one’s for all the Murcof fans’ - Mary Anne Hobbs

as well as Rob Booth’s Electronic Explorations sixth show. This support waned in the following year leaving Herd time to refine his sound. Fast forward another year and Herd flippantly sends a demo link to The Future Sound of London’s Brian Dougans and is pleasantly surprised to receive a very short but positive reply. Nine frustrating months later – not long in FSOL time – and Tangents 41 – 47 is released on the Future Sound of Londons online label FSOLdigital.


‘Nothing more than an amazing (and very welcome) flashback to my favorite world of FSOL’ – Headphone Commute

Prepare for a beautiful journey into the world of Herd.
