Stepping into the guest session slot this week I welcome Eddie Symons. Based in the Saint Ives, UK, Eddie writes electro music as Bovaflux and Nullptr and is co-promoter of Cambridge club night Motherchip Connexion. I’ve known his music for several years now from his show on futuremusic FM, a station I ran. This year has been a great year for his music – with releases for Central Processing Unit, Solar One Music, mindcolormusic, and Fanzine Records.
Eddie’s relationship with technology formed at an early age, growing up on programming beats and video games in his bedroom. Where we would create his own virtual worlds. Something he still does by day as a video game developer.
He would make his mark on the electro scene as Nullptr with his debut for Detroit Underground. Born out of a love of analogue hardware Optical blended IDM tropes with a new electro direction. His follow-up, for Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit got attention from the scene including Radio 1 airplay from B. Traits and club support from Jensen Interceptor, Carl Finlow and DVS NME. This year also saw him release his 5th album as Bovaflux – aux4419.Missed a show? Catch up with the archives.
