Morphamish aka Hamish Campbell is an Edinburgh based producer, live set performer and DJ who plays across the range of constantly evolving bass music using elements of techno, house, dubstep, funk, jungle, acid, hardcore, electro, ambient, hiphop ……. the list is endless. He’s one very multifaceted creator playing imaginative, mind bending sets, striving to write satisfyingly original music. He’s also the man who masters and remixes all the material on our a quiet RIOT label and for very good reason.
Musically awoken by Nirvana, Hendrix and Fugazi, everything changed in 1996 when taken to Edinburgh’s legendary Pure. By 1997 he had residences at notorious Edinburgh nights Pillbox and Obscene under the aliases Morph and Sola Perplexus. By 2001 he had releases on PBX and his own label Audiodacity, to much acclaim from the likes of Rob Da Bank, Daniel Benevente and Huw Stevens. Around this time he began collaborating with vocalist (and national poetry slam champion) Texture, calling themselves Double Helix and releasing material on Crystal Distortion’s Labrat Audiochemicals, Crunk’s Not Dead and Audiodacity. Double Helix found acclaim from luminaries like sci-fi godfather Warren Ellis and Mary Anne Hobbs, who called ‘Complacency’ “One of the most inventive pieces of British hip-hop that we’ve heard in a long, long time”.
His diverse tastes led to remixes / collaborations with many artists including Profisee, Banana Sessions, Stanley Odd and Freddy Frogs. Recent years have seen multi genre releases on Black Lantern (the acclaimed net label he co-founded), and on his own Morphamish.com.
He’s a firm favourite at the best Scottish festivals including Knockengorroch, Kelburn Garden Party and Audio Soup and regularly appears on BBC live sessions and podcasts. He’s a member of the Chapel Perilous Art System and Amma collectives, and currently co-runs ETC, a massively fun club night with a different theme each time.
Recently he started exploring the visual side of things, making as well as commissioning intense videos for his tracks, often using distinctive artwork by various well known underground artists.
With so much talent I’m surprised he’s not exploded ………… this dude never stops.
