Biography

The music that is impossible to categorize, but, as described by David Stubbs (the Quietus), answers the question as to what happens after Burial. Captivating sound of Eleven Tigers embodies the entire spectrum of styles and combines the “best ideas from the past two decades of electronic music, including hyperactive drum n’ bass beats, Burial’s underwater dubstep, plus dark ambience and the reverberations of post-apocalyptic cityscapes” (RVA). Originally from Lithuania, Jokubas Dargis aka Eleven Tigers now lives and creates in London.

In his teens, the musician played drums and listened to everything from Radiohead and Smashing Pumpkins to early acid-jazz. It did not take long though before he became obsessed with electronics and started taking in influences coming from the cut&paste (Coldcut, DJ Vadim, The Cinematic Orchestra), minimalist (Steve Reich), experimental (Autechre, Apparat) and then atmospheric ambient music (Biosphere).

In 2007 Eleven Tigers moved to London in search of new inspiration. He found it. The performer was blown away by the sound of Burial and began his own experimentations in dubstep. Eleven Tigers started out with the tracks such as Branches and Shanty that were both self-distributed through the dubstepforum.net or sub.fm channels. The overwhelming feedback received from his listeners kept Eleven Tigers going up until he was recognized by the “godmother” of dubstep, Mary Anne Hobbs, who played his ‘Prosthesis’ on her ‘Experimental’ show on BBC Radio 1. This was the turning point in Eleven Tigers’ career. He finally came to realisation where he belonged in music and his signature track Stableface was born.
