Barry Forbes, aka Up Digital, carries within his very core the true and genuine love and passion for electronic music. Influenced early on as a youngster via the likes of Kraftwerk, he began to attend events in his teenage years, and during the 90s began to arrange and promote a club night in Glasgow called, "Seventh City", which focused on the glowing music of Detroit, Sheffield, and Eindhoven.
A few of his influences are deeply rooted in the likes of Autechre, Carl Finlow, Speedy J and Drexciya. Barry's thirst for quality new
music is as undying as his love for classic material of days gone by, but still very alive within him. His sets as Up Digital, which was birthed in 2010, focuses on experimental Electro flavours which carry a healthy Techno influenced corona.
Barry currently operates and promotes Glasgow's club night Dum Dum, and has hosted in recent times the likes of The Hidden Persuader, and DeFeKT. His radio show on Future Music began in June of 2011, and he now also shares a rotating slot on the show EEM on Melbourne's "Radio Valerie", alongside
Somfay, and Sense. Keep an eye and ear out for Up Digital throughout 2012 where Barry shall be producing his own music and will be available for bookings.
