Releasing via his Clarity Recordings imprint, Sutherland’s distinctive electronic soul and leftfield disco cuts have been championed by Gilles Peterson, Jamie xx and Bradley Zero amongst many others. Alexis Petridis at the Guardian described the music as “full-tilt, lasers-hitting-glitterball mayhem”, and he has been featured by Resident Advisor, NPR and Boiler Room. Sutherland tours extensively alongside his acclaimed live band. He has appeared at Glastonbury, Pukkelpop, Nuits Sonores and MUTEK festivals, and performed at The Jazz Cafe in London, Panorama Bar and Contact Tokyo. He supported Texan psych auteurs Khruangbin on their recent sold-out UK/EU tour, opening at Brixton Academy, Paradiso and the Bataclan, and performed a cinematic funk suite with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
Closer to home, he has played twice at Meredith Music Festival, Splendour in The Grass, Inner Varnika and Beyond The Valley festivals. A record obsessive and occasional club hound, his eclectic DJ sets span dub, disco, post-punk, oddball techno and the full spectrum of UK club sounds.
