Pangaea (Hessle Audio)
Pangaea, aka Kevin McAuley, makes electronic dance music that draws its energy from the bleeding edges between sounds. Steering clear of the self-perpetuating feedback loops that often exist within established scenes, his tracks instead express the elusive and innovative qualities that characterise club genres in their infancy.
Pangaea’s productions and DJ sets have continually expanded to encompass a growing diversity of influences, reaching outward to integrate techno, house and jungle into their rhythmic axis. The resulting music is an incendiary hybrid rooted in UK hardcore traditions, as can be heard on the fabriclive.73 mix CD and latest EP for his own Hadal imprint.
