Somatic Responses

The brothers John and Paul Healy, collectively known throughout the world as Somatic Responses, are still native residents of a small industrial mining community snugly located in the southwest region of Wales. Somatic Responses are into complex dislocated & broken beats, distorted intelligent constructions, fascinating sonic structures, force and sweetness intertwined.

Veterans of the Breakcore scene, they have been creating complex, distorted techno since the mid 90s. Unlike the break-heavy, jungle sounds of their contemporaries, Somatic Responses have remained more experimental, sounding closer to the acid-laced Braindance outcrop of artists such as Autechre and Aphex Twin.

Their earliest output can be found on labels as Agent Orange, Drop Bass Network,  Six Shooter, Hymen Records and more.  To date they have more than 20 albums to their name of which the latest seven have been released on their own label Photon Emissions which was founded in 2010. They have an infinite love for experimental electronic (techno) and off course, the 303 acid sound is part of that.

Proof of this their 4/4 EP on Acid Night of last year with 4 banging, industrial, hardcore, acid techno tracks!
