Against the Clock is a series on FACT TV where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. Past episodes have featured xxxy, Thefft, KiNK and Sam Binga.
Artifact has been one of Bristol’s most impressive producers for a minute now, whether making ultra-swung techno or, in the case of Cologne Tracks, a free album released earlier this year, footwork. He might all be in the box, preferring to work on Ableton, but he cut his teeth designing analogue-aping software in Germany, so he knows how to make his tracks bang with the best of them. Watch him take on the challenge above.
