Biography

Radiohiro has been bringing the sounds of the subcontinent straight to you via deep bass and tabla induced breakbeats for years. A lifelong music producer and DJ, Radiohiro is rewriting the sounds of London’s “Asian Underground” movement. His sound can be best described as bass induced breakbeats/electronica with lush Hindustani, Punjabi and East Indian bollywood mixtures seamlessly worked in .

A trained drummer since the age of 4, Radiohiro was exposed to East Indian music thru his Jazz training, while listening to John McLaughlin’s ‘Shakti’ records which featured Master Violinist, L. Shankar and the masters of Indian percussion, including Zakir Hussain. After that he was sold on the deep integrity and rhythmic complexities of East Indian Hindustani music forms and looked for ways to expose this style to a Western audience. One way was to build a pirate FM radio station and produce a show featuring Asian Underground, Bhangra, Bollywood and Drum ‘n’ Bass, which he did for 6 years. Using voice samples of his hypercool friend from Tokyo, Hiro, as the radio announcer between songs, he titled his show, Radiohiro. As the show gained notoriety from 1996 until it’s demise in 2002, he decided to take on the name Radiohiro, for public appearances as well.

    Hearing 'Supernova' on Mark Whitby's show at Dandelion Radio as I write - fantastic combination of bollywood inspired vocals and rave dance vibe!

    If you are a fan of pumped up asian inspired dance beatz like Midival Pundits, Jef Stott, Jay Dahbi, and David Starfire, then give Radiohiro a listen- you'll be glad you did. As for me, I am eagerly awaiting Radiohiro's first cd! And no, I'm not the monkey mentioned in the bio, above.
