Monophonic Podcast 002 | Itchy Newman – Late Night Hustle
The second installment for the Monophonic Records Late Night Hustle Podcast 002 welcomes Itchy Newman to the decks.
Real name Anthony Newman, ‘Itchy’ was born and raised in Manchester (UK).
After purchasing Prodigy’s ‘Music for the jilted generation’ at the age of nine Itchy was quickly converted to the world of electronic music. Fascinated by the heavy bass lines mixed with dysfunctional beat alchemy and cinematic samples he was hooked. This new found obsession led him on a journey of discovery listening to everything from the dark and aggressive sounds of Helter Skelter’s ‘Technodrome’ through to the deep, melodic beats of The Beloved.
At the age of 16 Itchy bought his first pair of turntables and with being heavily influenced at the time by Ben Sims, Jeff Mills and Marco Carola he developed a love for percussive and tribal techno. Then in the summer of 2007 he worked his first season in Ibiza spending most Mondays on the terrace of DC10 followed by Cocoon at Amnesia watching the likes of Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Loco Dice, Tiefschwarz, Cirillo, Luciano and Ricardo Villalobos, It was at this point he knew he had found something he really connected with and after switching from vinyl to CD’s he started to find and develop his own style shaped by the many influences which can also be said for his production.
Today, after spending years of perfecting his own sound, Itchy is now releasing groovy, percussive tracks with driving tech house beats which sit perfectly on today’s dancefloors.
