Stamina Sundays: AMIT, JAMAL & ADEPT
Closing out June with a bang, Stamina welcomes the one like AMIT to 1192 Folsom. Known for his diverse, bass driven music and sets, the guy has made an indellible mark on labels like Metalheadz, Commercial Suicide Records, Exit Records UK, and his own imprint AMAR. We are stoked to have him through! He is joined by fellow Commercial Suicide affiliate JAMAL and young gun Adept.
Free as always.
AMIT is a UK based live Music Artist, Composer and Producer. He has released two critically acclaimed albums Neverending (2006) and 9 Times (2011) and over thirty slates of vinyl including 'Killer Driller', 'Roots' and 'Acid Trip'.
AMIT has been hailed as one of the most distinctive and original voices within the electronic music industry. He is credited with creating a new and innovative sub genre within electronic music, influencing a generation of new music artists. He was the first music artist within Electronica to begin creating music at his signature 'half-step' at 174bpm. A whole range of fellow artists quickly followed suit but AMIT is widely acknowledged as having been the pioneer. His work has been placed in the top 5 'Best Single' and 'Best Producer' categories on the BBC Radio listener polls.
His music is very much influenced by Dub and in particularly artists such as King Tubby and Lee 'Scratch' Perry. His music is also heavily influenced by Asian and Middle Eastern sounds, as well as Reggae, Dub, Electro, and Techno. AMIT has performed extensively at clubs and festivals across all continents.
In April 2012, AMIT released an EP on EXIT Records including the widely acclaimed 'Stay With Me', 'You Look Better Dead', 'Manic Minor' and 'Kritical'. The project saw AMIT reuniting with Irish/Indian vocalist RANI who previously featured on several tracks on '9 Times'. This fruitful collaborative relationship was further cemented by new releases for Metalheadz in October 2012 featuring 'Killer Driller' and 'Colour Blind' and for the pioneering electronic label Tempa, which featured 'Acid Trip' and 'Don't Forget Your Roots' and were released in March 2013.
In the summer of 2013 AMIT inaugurated his very own long anticipated imprint AMAR and July saw the first release with 'Human Warfare' and 'No Mercy'. In 2013 AMIT remixed Machinedrum's track 'GunShotta', this remix was released in November 2013 on Ninja Tune. AMAR's second release was a four track EP entitled The Parallel EP. It received rave reviews and the vinyl copies again sold out within days of the release date. AMIT has another EP planned for 2015; AMAR003 looks set to be released within the early part of next year.
