Avery began DJ'ing indie music as an 18-year-old in his native Bournemouth, England. It wasn't until a trip to Ibiza that he was inspired to spin house and techno, after seeing crowds open to dancing to new and unfamiliar tracks. As a producer and remixer, he developed a raw, robust sound that incorporated his love for odd, alien elements. Output from 2009 through 2011, including collaborations with Justin Robertson and remixes for the likes of Little Boots, Metronomy, Hercules & Love Affair, and In Flagranti, was credited to Stopmakingme. In 2012, he switched to his birth name and broke out with a slew of releases for James Friedman's Throne of Blood, Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound, and J.D. Twitch's Optimo Music. After signing to the Phantasy Sound label, Avery released his first solo album, Drone Logic, in October of 2013. The album took inspiration from electronic heroes like the Chemical Brothers and Underworld and mixed a wide range of electronic styles, from acid house to IDM, into a blend perfect for late-night bedroom listening. In early 2015, New Energy, an album of remixes of tracks from Drone Logic by the likes of Factory Floor, Audion, and Perc, was released. Avery spent 2017 with his head down, putting in hours at clubs around the world and quietly working on his sophomore album. The following year he released the Slow Fade EP as a precursor to his second full-length album, Song for Alpha. Arriving in April of 2018, the album was a bit dustier, hazier, and more reflective than his debut, focusing on the most immersive moments of the club-going experience.
