” The sound of Darshan has been lighting up dancefloors, clubs and living rooms of the electronic cognoscenti since 1995 when he first burst onto the scene. Pioneering a very specific and unique sound, Darshan brought a darker deeper atmosphere to the dancefloor that told a magical and brooding story. Darshan was quickly snapped up by Flying Rhino Records and rapidly became one of their most prolific and best selling artists, releasing 2 full length albums and numerous ep’s. On the back of this, Darshan found himself touring the globe and playing a packed schedule, quickly becoming known for his esoteric and obscure, yet dark driving techno infused trance.
Influenced early on by R&S Records and the likes of Joey Beltram, Darshan has never been afraid to dip his musical knowledge and production prowess into many genres of music – be it house, techno or breaks and ambient, and with releases on Pieces of Eight, Ouch, Fire and Global Underground, Proton and Particles he has found himself being championed by the likes of Sasha, Lee Burridge, Nick Warren and Danny Tenaglia under his Excession and Skein monikers.
Dynamic, bright and with serious attention to detail, he is one of the leading lights of the underground scene and courts long term admirers and followers from all over the world. In 2010 Grant launched 4digitalAudio, a techno label with his long term writing partner James Monro. Together they have been producing and writing since the late 90’s as 4D. They have also just relaunched Flying Rhino Records to huge critical acclaim, having had a huge following in the 90’s and early 00’s Alongside his production skills, Grant also designs and builds recording studios, does mastering and is a much sought after mine of information and advice from his peers. ”
