Geiom a.k.a. Kamal Joory popped up out of nowhere (for us) with a full length album called 'Island Noise' in 2007. Full lengths were a rarity in dubstep, and the colourful cover and dreamy title marked him out, as did the strong synth-based melody lines (check Futurerustic, for example).
What we didn't realise then is that he'd been releasing since the mid 90s having been involved with the UK rave scene. His label Berkane Sol was distinctive, with original and amazing artwork, originally showcasing just Kamal's own work but diversifying across the dubstep scene, showcasing the more creative talents then emerging, including fellow Nottingham artists such as Brackles, Shortstuff and the Wigflex crew . He's a diverse producer, achieving success with his poppier moments with Reminiscin and Sugar Coated Lover. An album is due this year.
He remains true to his native Nottingham and to his innate sense of good taste and we thank him for this prickly techy grimey little pot pourri
