Amassadeurs, the British counterpoint to artists such as Salva and XXYYXX, making leftfield, bass-heavy electronic music that is fast the reputation of the young Brighton-based producer. Taking cues from dub, hip-hop, bass and jazz, but sounding like none of these genres, Ambassadeurs sound is hard to pigeonhole. His distinctive style can be attributed to a Tobin-like love for turning found sounds into samples and processing them beyond recognition creating music as unique as his talent.

In light of the release of his new EP, that's available for free download, we managed to get him to pass over the influences that have helped Ambassadeurs build his unique sound.

Aphex Twin - Window Licker

This track was one of the first really experimental electronic tracks I heard and opened my eyes to how abstract electronic music could be and introduced me to all these different sounds and was and still is an inspiration. Also it introduced me to Chris Cunningham and I have been a fan since.
