Perring co-founded Not Like That in 2014 and released his début EP 'Layers’ which saw him named one to watch by The Guardian
. From there he remixed artists including Kero Kero Bonito
and Novo Amor
, and released singles through LA labels Pedicure Records
. Label work has led him to mixing and mastering for other artists and DJing across London. His follow up EP ‘Megacomputer’ was released in November 2015, accompanied by a collection of animated loops and designs by Brighton-based digital artist Mineral Lick
. As well as receiving Amazing Radio and BBC 6 Music
support the two lead singles 'Crystal Valley' and 'Dumfun' featured in Curve Digital's newest game 'Pumped BMX +'.
Raised on Death Metal and playing in bands throughout his teens, Andrew moved to London, age 18, to pursue electronic music. His first steps saw him gain a following on Soundcloud with his post-rock/electronica inspired moniker A Egg and went on to score a video game for Rage Panda Studios. Fork and Knife’s sound pays homage to his guitar music roots, dance music and pop, with rich synths, ambient guitar swells and the sweetest melodies laid over 808 beats.
“With this release I really wanted to make something that pays homage to pop music in all its forms. It’s probably not considered pop in the traditional sense but I feel it’s the melodies and the hooks that really drive the songs. As the title suggests, it’s totally inspired by childhood. Lots of (synthesized) glockenspiels and xylophones as well as more than a few nods to the video game soundtracks of my pre-teens. Production wise: the inspiration is as much rooted in the mid 80s as it is the present day ‘beat scene’, combining ridiculous snares and funk guitar parts with quite detailed percussion and soft synths. It’s equal parts Phil Collins and Rustie.”
