Also a multi-instrumentalist, he played guitar on the Mercury Music Prize winning album ‘New Forms’ by RONI SIZE and REPRAZENT and performed vocals for THE ORB.
Interfearence were formed by Tyrrell & Paul Martin and they released their first self-titled album in 1999 on London Records to much critical acclaim. Their live shows at Creamfields, London’s Fabric and other clubs in Europe included live visuals and were a feast for the eyes as well as the ears.
A partnership with Chris Thomaidis called HOOKED soon followed and their string of rock electronica 12″ vinyl promos were massive hits on the underground and received plays on Pete Tong’s Radio One show. Their DJ set at their single release party at Ministry Of Sound was to a packed room as were many of their other DJ sets in London’s clubland.
