Read grew up in Suffolk, and played football as a youth before he got into music. Initially playing guitar and drums, he listened to nu-metal before getting into jungle and IDM. When he began producing electronic music, he first made jungle tracks, but following a hard drive crash, he stopped making music in that style. While his family was briefly living in Australia, Read released his first EP, Patterns, on the Dark Arx label in late 2010. Read and his family moved back to England the following year, and he released additional singles on labels like Fourth Wave and 2nd Drop. By the time his debut full-length, Jummy, appeared in 2012, Read's unique sound had attracted the attention of publications such as Pitchfork and FACT.
The producer continued to release music on labels like Delsin and Aus Music, and a limited-edition album titled Saucepan Jams was self-released in 2013. Following a 2015 EP for Clone (Stand by the Bomb), Read's cassette Chubby Cheeks was released by Nosaj Thing's Timetable Records in 2016.
Subsequent EPs appeared on 2 B Real Records and Matthew Herbert's Accidental Jnr. ~ Paul Simpson
