A Little Bout the man Himself
As one of the pioneers of drum ‘n bass in the US, Edwin Garro—known by
his fans as UFO!—has established himself as one of the world’s most
talented and groundbreaking artists. Producing and performing across
continents for nearly two decades, UFO! is internationally renowned
for his innovative style and cutting-edge music.
A San Francisco native, UFO!’s musical roots trace back to the hip hop
scene of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Mixing and scratching alongside
fellow DJs QBert, Shortcut, Quest, and D-Stylz, UFO! quickly ascended
to the ranks of battle DJ. Enthralled with the new urban sounds of
London (hardcore, jungle and drum ‘n bass), UFO! founded San
Francisco’s Phunckateck crew in 1996, performing alongside
front runners such as Goldie, Ronnie Size, Ed Rush and Optical, Photek
and Dieselboy. He released more than two dozen singles on labels such
as Thermal, Position Chrome, Commercial Suicide, Green, and
Phunckateck Communications. In 2001, UFO! released his first album,
The Future Is Listening, on Thermal, one of the first full-length
albums produced by an American drum ‘n bass artist.
A move to New York City in 2000 brought UFO! a plethora of new
opportunities. While doing remixes for Trouble & Bass, UFO! scored
scenes in the hit television series, CSI: NY from 2005-2006. An
unstoppable force, UFO! also dived into the art world and landed a job
at New York’s MoMA PS1, displaying and arranging art installations in
the museum’s world renowned galleries.
Determined to reconnect with his cultural roots, UFO! left the country
in 2009 to live in Costa Rica, where he collaborated with prodigy
drummer Federico Gómez (.sØn!ka.). Together, the two formed the duo
Cosmetics, and were immediately signed by international labels such as
Filthy Digital (Denver), Bassism (SF), Forecast (Hungary) and Subdepth
Finally, in 2009, after a decade-long journey around the world, UFO!
made his return to San Francisco, the place it all started. Currently
represented by labels Frite Nite, Badman Press, Brap Dem, and Hot N
Heavy,and Subhuman. UFO! continues to edge forward faster and harder than ever.
With several upcoming releases coming out on Frite Nite, Sex Cult, Sub Depth, Herd Killing, Mallabel Subhuman,El CuCO (mombaton)…..UFO! proves relentlessly to be a force to be reckoned with.
