Biography

UFO! A Bay Area native pioneered the San Francisco Drum and Bass scene and co-founded the Phunckateck collective. An innovative producer.

2002 saw UFO! releasing an original material CD on Thermal Recordings, called “The Future is Listening”. Releases include a mix CD on Vortex called “Maelstrom,” and a special edition mix CD for Circa footwear. UFO! has worked Hive, Echo, and Techno producer John Tejada.

Producing and performing for nearly two decades, UFO! continues to edge forward, staking a position on the outward perimeter of music. Inertia is something this artist has had little use for in the past. Though widely regarded as one of the US’s pioneering drum ‘n bass artists and DJs, UFO! is poised to reinvent himself as a musician yet again, rising from the miasma of an ever-mutating underground music scene.

A San Francisco native, UFO!—born Ed Garro—was musically baptized by hip hop in 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, learning the skills and exercising them every chance he had. From his youthful days in hip hop, Ed found himself enthralled with the new urban sounds of London: hardcore, jungle, and drum ‘n bass. In it he saw a portal into the future, wider than any before. He stepped through, and soon after formed San Francisco’s Phunckateck crew in 1996, performing alongside frontrunners such as Goldie, Dieselboy, Photek, and Roni Size at the collective’s seminal weekly events.
