Years of unwanted childhood music lessons led MICHAEL MOREL to develop an aversion to common instruments like guitars and pianos. Intrigued by the unusual sounds of the didjeridu, MOREL’s true musical ambitions were sparked when he began playing the ancient AUSTRALIAN wind instrument in 1998.
Shortly afterwards, MOREL moved from the SAN FRANCISCO Bay Area to SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA where he developed a healthy obsession with DRUM+BASS and JUNGLE. Adopting the alias "INDIDJINOUS," he often played didjeridu over live DJ sets using various electric guitar pedals to distort the sound. After graduating college in 2002 he began experimenting with production, incorporating his didjeridu into many tracks. In 2005, having created a considerable number of tunes, he finally took up DJing. Today his performances typically consist of mixing his own tracks with like-minded tunes, though occasionally the didjeridu still makes an appearance.
In 2007 INDIDJINOUS headed off to the East Coast for graduate school where he explored the DRUM+BASS scenes in WASHINGTON DC, BALTIMORE, NEW YORK CITY and MIAMI. In 2011 he returned to CALIFORNIA and he currently lives in SAN FRANCISCO. The end of 2012 saw the emergence of his own internet radio show “THE OTHER SIDE” on JUNGLETRAIN airing every other Wednesday night from 8PM-9:30PM PST. In the summer INDIDJINOUS teaches an electronic music production/didjeridu class to middle school students in SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA.
Citing major influences from TECHNICAL ITCH, DOM & ROLAND, KONFLICT, PARADOX, TEEBEE, HIVE and AMIT, INDIDJINOUS tunes are cinematic, tribal and dark. His sound spans several styles of DRUM + BASS including TECHSTEP, DRUMFUNK, HALF-TIME, EXPERIMENTAL, ATMOSPHERIC and NEUROFUNK. Overtly melodic sounds are almost wholly absent in his productions. Instead he tends toward abstract sci-fi atmospherics, industrial sound effects, and dis-harmonic bass lines.
With a healthy number of releases/forthcoming pressure on respected labels such as SUBTLE AUDIO, PINECONE MOONSHINE, MANIFESTO MUSIC, OMNI MUSIC, DYSFUNK MUSIC, GOLDEN AGE, JUNGLETRAIN, DIGITAL CONSPIRACY, LW RECORDINGS and MATERIALIZM, INDIDJINOUS has recently been hard at work with notorious AUSTRALIAN producer CENTASPIKE collaborating on groundbreaking new sounds.
Tune in this session as we dive into the mind of a truly original and talented DJ/producer and are treated to an exclusive guest mix from the man known as INDIDJINOUS!
