DJ Stingray 313
Sherard Ingram is a menacing node in the vast tangle of electronic music's history, present and future. As DJ Stingray 313, he propagates a seer-like, totalizing concept of what it is to be engaged in thinking ahead by making people move. DJ Stingray's 313 nexus of electro, house and techno bypasses normalized circuits to confront the future, to articulate abstract dynamics. It's a slice of information; it is a bandwidth. Ingram's crucial and distinctive function in this system is to decode his particular nexus as a speculative software for others, and to encode its conspicuous qualities as a feedback system with the rest of the spectrum. If it sounds intense, it's because it is, and it's still just about sweating it out at a club.
