Producer Focus: Mobile Dogwash

 

Mobile Dogwash

Mobile Dogwash

It was 1997 when Mobile Dogwash starting producing Acid Techno in his hometown of Sheffield.
Not satisfied with the trappings of his studio, he soon earned himself a resident slot at the legendary Headcharge, the club responsible for playing the north’s most banging techno.
Mobile Dogwash honed his sound, his ears never far away from a speaker with London techno pouring from it. Six years after the project started, he collaborated with The Pranksterz, earning him his first release on Acid Test.
Since then, Mobile Dogwash has had releases on some of techno’s most reputable labels. Abusive 303, Acid Test, Acid Test Remix, Brain Gravy, Chase Yer Tail, Cluster, Corrosive, DIP, Injector, Scythe Squadron, Stay Up Forever Remix & Stay Up Forever have all put out his work, with Chase Yer Tail, Interstate One, Project 303 and Wah Wah all following suit in the coming months.
Not the lone star that some DJs tend to be, Mobile Dogwash has regular company in the studio in varying forms; Ron Atomizer (who was a part of and helped develop the sound of Mobile Dogwash in the earlier days), Dave Atomizer (Twisted Tyrants), Si McLean (Acid Kazuals), Pablo Sonic Terrorist (Orgy of Distortion), Fabulous 23s and OB1, plus future collaborations planned with Steve Mills, Tassid and Tik Tok.
Recently he has been back in the studio with Dynamic Intervention (results out soon on Chase Yer Tail) and has just returned from banging out some ‘avin’ it sounds with London Acid Techno legend The Geezer (two tracks due out soon on Wah Wah).
Mobile Dogwash rocks the dance floor with his fat rolling hard acid sound and plays regularly across the width and breadth of UK and abroad. Highlights of Mobile Dogwash’s last year include playing at Boomtown Festival (Acidic/Raveyard) and across the sea in Ireland (Transformer Sounds).
This year looks set to be no less special with forthcoming gigs from Venezuela (Invasion 303) to London (Loud n Lairy) and Derby (Sounds of Wasps).
