Pearson Sound

ROLE: Lecturer

ACADEMY EDITION: Madrid, 2011 // Profile

DECIBEL SHOWCASE: Hessle Audio After-Hours – 9/27 @ NEUMOS 


As one third of the team behind the Hessle Audio label, 2011 Red Bull Music Academy lecturer Pearson Sound has become synonymous with cutting edge UK dancefloor music. Having stripped back his release schedule, somewhat defiantly dropping just a couple of self-released singles that hinted at a more vivid approach to his production, he’s truly taken his DJ-ing global – touring as far as Asia, South America and Australia. Having lectured at the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, released a critically acclaimed FABRICLIVE compilation and remixed artists like Radiohead, the xx and M.I.A., Pearson Sound has also found the time to run the vinyl-only club night, Acetate, in Leeds.

Musically, he’s looking forward, refusing to sit still or be easily categorized. And with his latest productions feeding more from the classic notions of 4×4 dancefloor music and his sets retaining every inch of precision, he has established himself as one of the UK’s most in-demand artists.
