Hailing from the industrial landscape of Teesside in North East England, Hall North (real name, Stephen Thompson) has risen to notoriety recently due to his forthcoming remix of Harvey Mckay’s ‘69’ soon to be released on Soma.
A classically trained pianist with huge enthusiastm for all things electronic and a life-long fan of bands like Depeche Mode and New Order, Hall North draws inspiration from a diverse pallette of influences, from Brian Eno to Frankie Knuckles, Ennio Morricone to Buriel and everything inbetween.
Although house music was always his first love, he has dabbled in the indie electro scene, playing synths in electro group Coldseat and promoting and spinning at many a crossover indie-electro clubnight in his native Teesside.
Then, in 2009, he returned to his rightful place, in the warm and loving embrace of house.
Much like the landscape surrounding his home town, Hall North’s tracks and sets encompass all that is deep/ethereal and dark/beautiful about house and techno music and emphasise the pure bitter sweet emotion that makes dancefloor experiences so memorable.
