Manchester (26/Oct) | Artist Biography
Icicle aka Jeroen Snik was born & raised in Holland. At the Age of 8 Icicle first started playing piano and soon got onto the drum kit. It wasn't long until he started making beats using an old school midi set-up and aged 15 he became hooked on drum and bass after going to local night "Jungle Galaxy". Getting some turntables and better music making software followed and Icicle was on his way. Icicle takes inspiration from the dirty basslines of the likes of Jonny L and Optical and the intricate drum patterns of Photek & Source Direct.
After commanding the attention of the masses with releases on labels such as Hospital Records, Soul:R, Renegade Hardware and Critical, Icicle made the move from Holland to London in 2008 and exclusively signed to Shogun Audio.
Following ground breaking singles including rolling d&b of ‘Dreadnaught’ to the deep dubstep of ‘Xylophobia’ Icicle dropped his debut album ‘Under the Ice’, in 2011 that saw him reach dazzling new heights, Icicle’s continued need to explore other electronic genres saw him mixing a Rinse FM album installment and releasing his deeply intense ‘BNC’ dubstep EP on Shogun. All the while his own Rinse FM show would go from strength to strength.
2013 heralded another hectic DJ’ing schedule which saw him play at some of the biggest clubs and festivals accoss Europe, Australia and the USA. After high profile remixes for the likes of Icona Pop and Noisia it was his pivotal track ‘Anxious’ that sealed the year as part of Shogun’s award-winning album compilation series ‘Way Of The Warrior 2’.
With his production levels regarded as some of the best in the business it isn’t surprising that the Icicle name has become synonymous with some of the best tech brands in the world. At the start of 2014 Icicle cemented this reputation releasing his very own patches as part of the brand new Molekular Modular unit by global market leading Native Instruments. Add to that his smash collaboration with Mefjus, ‘Contemporary’, and the year couldn’t be off to a better start. And with rumour of his sophomore album nearing completion this may well be his biggest year yet.
With a reputation as one of the most flawless and exceptional electronic producers of his time, there’s nothing else quite like the Icicle experience.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
