LOCAL F

Born and raised in God's Country (Yorkshire), Local F was exposed to a rich history of dance music, courtesy of the UK rave culture growing up in the 90s and onward. He began learning and producing from around the age of 9 on the family computer and has dipped in and out of producing ever since.

In 2013, after studying music production at a local college, he submitted "Groove Kid" to BBC Introducing. This track went on to be BBC 1Xtra's Track Of The Week. This led to more commercial production opportunities. However, Local F learned that his true roots lay in more creative and expressive "underground" productions, where he could experiment and produce tracks to his taste and liking.

His ear for a good groove enhanced hugely when he moved to Bangkok in late 2015. In Bangkok, Local F began playing prominent bars and clubs that support a real house/techno sound, rather than the more cosmetic and commercial EDM style of the time. Sorry I'm Gay Bar, located in a popular night market in central Bangkok soon had him playing 5 to 6 nights per week in their outdoor cocktail bar styled location.

From there, Local F teamed up with like minded House DJs to create the House Jam DJ collective, and since then played at huge amount of venues and some prominent regional events.

His recent "Funky Junction EP", released on Pogo House Records, was a result of Local F playing a weekly slot on a well known club terrace location in Bangkok. He wanted to make tracks to fit the terrace vibes. It ended up that all of the Funky Junction tracks have been tried and tested on that terrace with a truly positive reception. One highlight was when Local F played Funky Junction on the terrace accompanied by live saxophone. Another more soulful effort on the EP - "Hot 4 U" - was also accompanied by sax several times. Videos of these moments can be seen on Local F's Facebook page.

So, Local F is now focused on producing a variety house and garage inspired grooves that he likes and would want to play on the dance-floor. Arguably, only real DJs can hear what tracks will work for a small room, a bar, a club or a huge venue - through experience. Each location is different and calls for a different approach in terms of track selection and its energy levels. This is where Local F shines. He understands, through experience, which track will work for his purposes. And if you like his tracks...well that's a bonus!
