Icicle was born Jeroen Snik in Holland. At the Age of 8 he first started playing piano, progressing to the drum kit and soon making beats using a basic midi set-up. Aged 15 he became hooked on drum and bass after going to local night Jungle Galaxy. Getting some turntables and better-music-making softwares followed, and Icicle was on his way.
Taking inspiration from the dirty basslines of heroes Jonny L and Optical and the intricate drum patterns of Photek and Source Direct, Icicle's cold, Tech Funk sounds have quickly earned him DJ support from Goldie, LTJ Bukem, Fabio, London Elektricity, Pendulum, Andy C, Friction, D-Bridge, Flight, Noisia and Commix amongst countless others.
In the space of two short years he has built-up an enviable catalogue of releases on prestige labels including Ram Records, Shogun Audio, Critical Recordings, Renegade Hardware and Subtitles and has become a mainstay on the UK DJ circuit, regularly playing venues including Fabric and The End whilst maintaining a hectic touring schedule stretching from Europe to Japan.
2009 sees Icicle relocating to London whilst busily working on his debut album for DJ Friction’s Shogun Audio, the label with whom he recently signed exclusively. Tours of Australia and New Zealand are already on the cards alongside extensive album support alongside the rest of the Shogun family.
He is recognised as one of the most technically advanced and highly-respected producers in electronic music. Mastering Tech-Funk better than any other, Icicle's music is graceful yet daring and, without doubt, technically remarkable.
