With a long career working with major record labels and two critically acclaimed albums behind him, Hill is exploring the deeper electronic side of his music and influences.
The Subtheory’s sound speaks of Hill’s experience splitting his time between the UK and Los Angeles.The music draws from a darker, grittier version of a neo-retro dystopia: Bladerunner noir meets cyberpunk detective.
Andy Hill has always loved making music starting off with his parents’ mono record collection as he created on-the-fly remixes with pause buttons and the early days of MPC samplers before moving into the fully digital age of software DAWs.
Through the years, Hill has experimented and explored many genres but with a sustained ethos to create music that moves people - whether it be their feet, their hearts or their minds.
