Dimension, real name Robert Etheridge, is an electronic music producer and DJ from London. A man of few words who tends to let his music do the talking, Dimension is receiving mainstream success without deliberately releasing crossover music – striking the perfect balance between club and radio. Not only the creative mind behind his music, Dimension distinguishes himself through his passion for bold architectural design, sleek aesthetic and theological themes – this unique ethos has helped propel Dimension to establish himself as one of the most exciting, sought after producers in electronic music.
At an early stage of his career, Dimension was already turning heads within the Drum & Bass scene and specialist radio alike. A combination of effortless musicality and production prowess caught the attention of many producers and DJ’s such as Andy C, Sub Focus and Chase & Status. The real turning point for Dimension was in 2016 with Annie Mac claiming “this is Dimension’s strongest year to date.” Dimension released two singles – ‘Automatik’ which was Hottest Record In The World as well as #1 in the Radio 1 Dance Chart, and taking the crown of his second Hottest Record with arguably the biggest underground Drum & Bass track of the year, ‘UK’, which received unprecedented support from club and radio DJ’s across the board including Dance music stalwart, Pete Tong.
In 2016 ‘Automatik’ gained the support of Triple J, introducing Dimension into the Australian market, where he soon after visited on an incredibly successful debut tour.
Since the significant passing of an unmarked demo, the soundtrack to James Pountney’s journey is one which is well known. The boundaries pushed by his sonic artwork, under the now revered guise Culture Shock, have created a varied and diverse discography that’s symbolic within one of the UK’s most withstanding genres. Creating tracks that attest both time and production standards, there’s no denying that his alias has become a household name not only across drum & bass, but also the daytime radio airwaves. With Beats1 mogul Zane Lowe already comparing Culture Shock’s music to Pink Floyd’s album ‘Dark Side of the Moon’, marking an enthusiastic nod of approval towards a burgeoning career.
