Peverelist is the lynchpin of the Bristol dubstep music scene. His championing of homegrown talent has made his label, Punch Drunk Records, perhaps the defining contemporary label of one of the world’s most influential musical cities. His own productions have been hugely influential in shaping the second-wave dubstep sound, drawing influences from UK & JA soundsystem culture and European and American house and techno. His releases include genre-defining classics on Skull Disco, Tectonic and Punch Drunk, culminating in the ‘Jarvik Mindstate’ album in late 2009. Peverelist productions and DJ sets are renowned for uncompromising, challenging, forward-thinking innovation and militant underground aesthetics, unusual in the increasingly homogenous and rave-orientated dubstep overground. He learnt his trade and furthered his passionate grassroots approach during a decade working in the UK underground frontline of inner city Bristol’s influential and last remaining independent record shop, Rooted Records. Peverelist is a resident at Bristol’s definitive and original dubstep club night Subloaded. He also co-promotes Bristol’s longest running monthly specialist dubstep event, Dubloaded, alongside Pinch, and has played at DMZ, FWD>>, toured Japan and played extensively in Europe.
