Daniel Avery

The word tastemaker does get bandied about often, but in the case of Daniel Avery it’s more than justified. Just listen to his monthly NTS Radio show where you can hear him play anything from dark ambient to banging, hard techno. His label Phantasy, the imprint he co-owns with Erol Alkan, is well known for shaping musical trends and introducing the wider scene to unknown talent. His cerebral take on techno has seen him become the face of a global scene that is as much as a lifestyle choice as it is a musical one.
