C Randall - DJ and producer

Ash Wiggins is a DJ and producer under the name of C Randall of Randall Records, living and writing in the rural sleepy village of Apsley just outside of London.


This offers him the chance to get into the finer details of writing and producing banging house music, often utilising organic sounds such as acoustic percussion, guitar, didgeridoo and chanting. These sounds are wrapped up in a mixture of cutting edge tech and vintage synths ready for him to play in clubs in the big city such as Ministry of Sound, Egg, Slaughtered Lamb and Vibe Bar.


This photo is a juxtaposition of the rural writing location against the gritty London club scene that serves as a platform for C Randall's music. Here's another from the same shoot and here's another in a different style.


I'm quite keen to try out more of this location lighting in a setting that leaves room for a narrative almost in a slight caricature kind of way, like the bright synthetic shot of Rosa Ullmann and her keyboard or Dan Baxter on Abbey Road for his album sleeve.


Any unsigned bands, solo artists or DJs, get in touch for a discounted rate!
