Brooklyn-based producer bad tuner is challenging the mold when it comes to forward-thinking dance music.

First catching an early eye from BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong with ‘Coming Down’, his tracks continue to be spun regularly by tastemaker stations & DJs globally, including KCRW, SiriusXM Chill, Ben Malone (Kiss FM UK), Danny Howard and Jack Saunders (BBCR1), Triple J, and RMC.

Having a distinct DIY progressive sound has made him stand out brightly in the electronic space and has put him on the map with several leading artists in the dance scene.

His fresh sound has translated to the live stage where bad tuner has built a name for himself in the Brooklyn scene with his frequent headlines selling out across the city, including a sold-out headline play at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere rooftop in May of 2023.

bad tuner has also expanded beyond his NY roots, joining artists like Polo & Pan, TOKiMONSTA, Bon Entendeur, Amtrac, Joy Anonymous, and others on their North American tours.

With his new EP look at me but through me due out on Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune in 2024, the future looks promising for bad tuner.
