2011 saw the unconventional beginnings of what the iCulture movement has become. Unlike most, if any clubbing brands, iCulture began as a sound recording, originally released by Richard Earnshaw on Duffnote Recordings, a musical reference or recognition of the technological environment we now inhabit. It wasn’t long before iCulture was topping the charts and making noises of a deep and soulful house music resurgence.
As an established DJ on the international circuit, it was a natural transition to integrate his own events into the clubbing calendar and later that year, in conjunction with Mike Scot’s Sensative Soul brand, iCulture made it’s very first appearance as a clubbing event at the world’s biggest dance music conference…ADE. And for the years ahead, established itself as a go to party for the house music community.
Furthering its global outreach took the form of iCulture Radio when in 2014 it transmitted its first edition in October on Grant Nelson’s newly formed www.d3ep.com internet radio station. And now into its second year of broadcast, the show is syndicated globally, across a number of internet platforms and also on FM frequencies in cities and territories the world over.
During ADE in 2014, Richard Earnshaw and Steve Taylor met and formed a bond which was to mark the beginning of a new chapter for iCulture, and it was with Steve, who by contributing his own production knowledge, energy and passion for music, took a popular industry brand to the masses, spanning across Europe and throughout the UK. With plans already in place to take things even further afield, iCulture is holding its head high amongst some of the most revered and most established brands with a guest list compiled of some of the biggest and most respected DJs and producers in the industry.
For music, for love, for life.
