It's safe to say since his emergence at the tail end of 2011 Evian Christ, aka Joshua Leary, has had a whirlwind two years. Off the back of his breakthrough mixtape Kings And Them which came out on Tri Angle Records in February 2012, the 24 year old, Ellesmere Port, UK native has produced on Kanye West's Yeezus, collaborated with acclaimed conceptual artist Matthew Barney, released the notably abstract sound-piece Duga-3, performed around the world alongside the likes of Purity Ring, Actress and Four Tet and garnering positive reviews and features in global tastemaker press including Details Magazine,Dazed & Confused, Pitchfork and VIBE amongst many others.
Most notably, Evian Christ has signed a publishing deal with Kanye West's DONDA, where he will continue with his work as a producer.
His latest EP Waterfall finds Evian Christ exhibiting a creative restlessness that continues to make it harder to pigeonhole this young, evolving artist. On Kings And Them Evian Christ conjured up a sound that was influenced by hip hop as it much as it was by more ambient forms of music. On Waterfall Evian Christ has taken his unique sound into a far noisier and more aggressive territory.

Tim DeWit has been a cornerstone of underground music for over a decade. From his early roots in the DC punk scene with The Cranium to the foundation of Gang Gang Dance, DeWit has consistently spread an exotic sense of rhythm and melody wherever his career has taken him. As a touring member he's played drums in bands as diverse as Cass McCombs, Ssab Songs with Harmony Korine, Neil Hegarty, Teengirl Fantasy and The Boredom's 77 Boa Drum.
Tim's pilgrimage to New York with Brian Degraw began GGD's first abstract experiments like Revival Of The Shittest and God's Money - which he produced as well as performed. After completing Saint Dymphna with the band, DeWit took a hiatus until it's expected release. Before it would drop Tim was shot in a robbery while visiting his family in Michigan. The nearly fatal gunshot to his chest forced him to indefinitely leave the band and live performance, shifting Tim's focus to production.
In the years following DeWit contributed to Venus X's seminal Ghe2o G0th1k parties as Dutch EGerm and created runway music sound design for NY fashion underdog Hood By Air. Tim also composed soundtrack work for new Oscilloscope films 12 O'clock Boys, Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors and Leilah Weinraub's forthcoming female strip club documentary Shakedown. Dutch EGerm has remixed musicians Fatima Al Qadiri and Mas Ysa.
In 2014 DEG will continue to deliver his rhythmic intricacies developed in GGD with contemporary influence and worldly aim. Released for the first time under his own name, UNO's IN.RAK.DUST represents an uncompromising musician entering the next stage of his craft.
