Born in the UK and based in Berlin, Cressida’s sound is a cross-pollination of these two sonic spectrums – the rhythmic, dystopian force of techno fused with a sound embedded in various points of the UK hardcore continuum. Jungle, grime, breakbeat, industrial and the many low end-centric offshoots in between all colour and shape his creative output.
His DJ sets encapsulate this approach – driven by a spirit of eclecticism and finely attuned to effectively working dancefloors, having spent much of his formative years as part of them.
Previous performances have seen Cressida play everything from loopy, dynamic techno through to ambient & esoteric strains of bass music.
Cressida marked his first release on Voitax with Hymn To Lust in 2017, which was quickly followed by the Salvation EP on OSF (featuring a remix by Matrixxman) & tracks on compilations for both Dax J’s Monnom Black & Mord in 2018.
He returned to Voitax for two solo EP’s in the form of Borneo Function & Sambo in 2019 & 2020 respectively, as well as contributing a track to the huge Midnight Shift x Voitax collab LP in late 2020.
Far from going unnoticed, his work has been heralded by luminary artists such as Dax J, Paula Temple, Rebekah, FJAAK to name a few.
His live performances have gathered at an even faster pace with shows in North America, Asia and across Europe, plus key appearances at institutions like Tresor.Berlin (OFFICIAL), Berghain’s Saule, about:blank and Griessmuehle in his adopted hometown.
He has also made key contributions to renowned mix series such as HATE & GROOVE-Magazin as well as appearing on the mighty Rinse FM, amongst many others.
