"If you like tough, no bullshit house music that will make you dance, then Boom Merchant is for you." - theunderground.eu
"Fast-rising Glaswegian producer Boom Merchant is a man whose sound is hard to pigeonhole, but is draped in rich and sinewed quality regardless." - Data Transmission
The last 12 months have been frantic for Boom Merchant; from releasing a series of hard-hitting EPs over the course of the year, to launching the Tribal Pulse imprint last Summer, to taking the label to the largest Dance music event in the world; the Amsterdam Dance Event.
The Boom Merchant sound, although difficult to categorize, has been well received by DJs across the electronic music spectrum. Tracks like 'Origins', 'Temujin' and 'Tokyo Skyline' are brimming with atmosphere, depth and colour. His tracks blend layered melodic elements and complex percussion programming, and have attracted the attention of some elite names in house and techno music, receiving remix treatment from Dave Seaman and Pole Folder among others.
His recent Stars/Green Symphony EP on Tribal Pulse broke new ground, with hang drums, horns and atmospherics cascading over robust drum work. DMC Mag described it as 'tough house for no nonsense dance floors that cannot fail to make you dance' and Data Transmission claimed it 'has all the makings of a future classic.' DJ support came from across the spectrum, including Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Stacey Pullen, Dave Seaman, Betoko and John Digweed, who played Green Symphony on his 'Transitions' radio show. When asked in a recent interview what to expect from his set, his answer was simple: 'Expect psychedelic madness'.
A keen supporter of vinyl, his sets are crafted with precision and care. Recent guest mixes for Data Transmission and Big Shot Mag are testament to the diversity and appeal of his sounds.
More material is to come in the latter half of the year, with releases on Tribal Pulse and on DJ 3000's seminal Detroit techno label Motech. More innovative sounds are in the pipeline and with gigs scheduled in Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as further afield in Holland and Italy, the future looks promising.
