Trisector aka Otto Andelin was inspired by music from an early age, influenced by the sounds blasting out of his Commodore 64 and the Bruce Springsteen and Beatles tapes his dad played in the car. After hearing the amen break on an LTJ Bukem set from Roskilde Festival in Denmark, drum & bass became essential listening and, aged 11, he got his first PC so he could create it himself using tracker software and samples.
Otto unleashed his first release in 2004 on UK label Heavy Disco as one half of Finnish breakbeat/dubstep duo Takomo. Aided by DJ support from breakbeat heavyweights Annie Nightingale, Jay Cunning and Tayo, ten Takomo releases followed on labels such as Botchit, Destructive, Urban Graffiti, Trans:verse Records, Mechanoise, Breaks FM and Audiogore. DJ dates came thick and fast, presenting the boys with a chance to play all over Europe from Finland to Spain and Russia to the UK.
In 2007 Otto rekindled his relationship with drum & bass, redeveloping his sound at 170bpm under the name Trisector with DJ support from Blu Mar Ten, ASC, Muffler, Physics and Resound. It wasn’t long before Hospital Records snapped up his tracks for sister label Med School who delivered two Trisector singles “Morning Rain” and “Lifeforms” to an unsuspecting drum & bass fraternity in 2009. These tracks were championed by High Contrast, Nerm (BBC radio), London Elektricity, Survival, S.P.Y, Kasra, Loxy, Mutated Forms and Chris.SU among others.
Since 2012 Otto has been making music for video games, including Illfonic’s first person shooter Nexuiz and Predator: Hunting Grounds. He’s also been dabbling in visual arts; VJing for live visuals and music videos.
For the last few years Otto has been working on a new project, Out Of Fuel, with his friend Matic. Blending dark, experimental drum & bass with techno, ambient and other forms of electronic music, the duo have had a string of quality releases on respected labels including Med School. Live shows are currently in the works.
