Rotterdam-based producer Christopher Yikes specialises in the deeper sounds of Dubstep. Borne out of a very musical family with Moluccan roots, he followed the tracks his progenitors laid before him through rehearsals and instrumentation at a very young age. Not long after he found himself favouring turntables over the guitar, Christopher Yikes was already dabbling in music production and all the benchmark extracurricular activities of a music-loving teen-ager. Progressing through the genres to hone his skill set. It wasn’t until 2009 that he turned his attention to Dubstep and has been hooked ever since, whilst always drawing inspiration from the heyday of techy DNB in the late 90s/early 2000s (an era that we here at Inna Riddim are particularly fond of too).
Today Christopher Yikes is focused and working harder than ever; a clear determination that came across upon our contact and through his impressive Mataglap EP. Hisresolve to bring a unique and tailored flavour to the colourful spectrum that is Dubstep is clearly evident through his recent successes: his debut Mataglap EP a proud statement of intent, and testament to dreams and aspirations in reach. One to watch!
