Release News

We are excited to announce the latest edition to the growing Box Set family.

A-DUFF is a rising producer from Adelaide, Australia.

A tendency for 8 bit sounds and glitchiness seem to permeate most productions in his quest for ultimate aural lushness. He creates highly emotional and beautiful moods using incredibly intricate programming and expansive synths.

In contrast to these atmospheric sounds is his trademark - uber-melodic breakbeat where "hard hitting kicks and pulsating basses combine with the sort of emotive chord sequences that New Order would kill to have in their setlist. The result? Uplifting, massive dance music that will get you up and moving."

New EP coming soon....
