Jimmy Asquith founded the well-renowned label Lobster Theremin in 2013. Since then the label boss has established three imprints including; Mörk, Distant Hawaii and Tidy Bedroom, as well as a respected distribution service used widely within the electronic music scene, and a physical record shop based in Hackney, East London.
Alongside the label, Asquith continues to sell out his Corsica Studios based night Find Me In The Dark, which champions emerging talents and sees collaborations with the likes of Discwoman, Workshop and Antinote. DJing internationally, Asquith simultaneously is producing and performing under multiples aliases all whilst holding down a regular Rinse slot.
On top of that, Asquith’s personal and ambiguous ambient alias, Tom Hang, will be releasing his debut album this December following a heart-wrenching Cafe Oto performance. Part ambient, drone, noise and a tapestry of clouded, intermingling emotions, ‘To Be Held In A Non Position’ is a three-and-a-half year release from stasis; an exhale from a long-held breathe; a shallow sleeper now awake.
On a DJ tip, increased gigs have led to a stylistic shift, a move back to UK-oriented sounds blended with old-school US influences and plenty of new names and talent littered throughout the set lists, alongside occasional older selected digs from the garage-house trove.
The start of 2018 will see a solo Asquith jaunt of North America as well as a Lobster Theremin debut showcase at Motion on January 20th, kicking off the 5 Years of Lobster Theremin European tour.
