Detroit, United States
Having been surrounded by the standard 4/4 sounds of techno, house and electro in the Detroit electronic scene, influenced by the gritty industrial sounds of groups like meat beat manifesto, front 242 and NIN, and always searching for something different, led Calico to find the bass heavy abstract sounds of drum & bass and dubstep.
Attending his first underground events in 1996 at Detroit’s famed The Warehouse and the Packard plant changed his life forever, and led him into a whole new world. After a few years of attending events and seeing what there was to offer, Calico began helping promote and present events with various crews in and around the city, helping to bring some of the biggest names in the game.
