Raised in Southern California but recently relocated to Portland Oregon, CRIMES! has released previously on Saturate Records and Never Slept and his music has been supported by heavyweights such as Dutch techsteppers Noisia, UK's Plastician and the legendary DJ Craze. He claims it is hard to pigeonhole his music as it is a hybrid of various genres, spanning multiple musical scenes over the years. There's certainly a hip-hop influence; after all he is a West Coast kid and he was heavily inspired by Los Angeles' beat scene. On the release in his own words: "there's a dark and light side to these tracks combining 8bit sci-fi fantasy with a heavy bass hip hop twist." Set up in 2014 by North London trio Ivy Lab, 2020 was initially a London club night set up as a home for the halftime movement. The project expanded to encompass this record label, the clubnight appearances across the U.K and the inclusion of a broader collective of artists, both established and emerging.
