Involved with California Drum & Bass since the beginning, his unique take on the sound and ability to gain any crowd’s trust has him playing some of the largest dance events in the Western U.S. including Nocturnal Wonderland, Lucidity, Control at Avalon, and numerous clubs and parties over the past year. His performance sound is D&B, Halftime, and Abstract beats, morphed, rearranged, and manipulated using Ableton Live. His production prowess has found him releasing music with artists such as Photek, Gridlok, Salva, Flinch, UFO!, and George Clinton, among others. Taking a 6 year hiatus to push his successful Kuru project, 2015 marks exactly one year since Origin’s return to the sounds of D&B, and the future looks bright.
Since his 4-track tape experiments in the early 90s, Ryan has been completely infatuated with electronic music and the art of creating it. His first songs were released in 2000, and his first vinyl release came soon thereafter via Argon Records. He spent the 00s playing events all over the West Coast and Europe, including Electric Daisy Carnival (’03 & ’06), Audiotistic, PRSPCT, and innumerable clubs and parties of all sizes.
