Neil Gray (aka Perpetual Present) – English producer, DJ and performer for a variety of electronic music genres. Influences come from a wide spectrum of styles and eras but generally the louder, fatter and funkier the better.

Making noises and experimenting with recording techniques since the mid 90s, Neil formed several bands in his misspent youth, playing either guitar, bass or drums. After graduating Electronics & Music Tech from York University in 2005 and discovering the delights of digital broken beats, he went on to help shape the direction of young label Acidphonic records.

Debut release ‘Discoteca’ in 2007 gained some underground support and recognition and demonstrated the progressive tech-funk breakbeat sound that is now associated with the label. The aim was simple; to provide some unique, chunky, dirty beats and bass for the modern dancefloor and beyond.

Support in the scene has grown steadily, charting No.2 on Trackitdown and DJ Download with ‘Red Light On’ and achieving a No.1 spot with ‘Girls & Devices’ earlier this year.

With DJ support from Plump DJs, General midi, Leeroy Thornhill, Ils, James Zabelia, Hexadecimal, BSD, Kultur, Toni Jarvis, expect to hear plenty of fresh tunes and remixes in the coming months.
