AEPH [Close2Death/Modulate/Flight/Subsonik Sound/Bad Taste]
Simone Vallecorsa aka Aeph was introduced to Drum and Bass when he was a teenager back in Rome. At the age of 16, inspired by people like Bad Company, Dillinja, Ltj Bukem and new wave acts like Pendulum, Sub Focus, Noisia and Spor, Simone was compelled to make his own music. Now ten years down the line Aeph lives and works out of London and has released on a number of DnB's most cutting edge labels. The "Aeph" sound is a mixture of early musical influences such as Daft Punk and Prodigy, ultra modern riffs, and great versatility. Combined with a finesse that rivals his role models. "Aeph is on path for greatness! Mind blowing tunes, super tight production and he is even a nice guy! Putting more BAD into Bad Taste..." Blokhe4d.
