Rob Shedwick, aka Digital Front, is an independent musician, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from Manchester, England.
He has released five EPs as a solo artist (‘A Song For No Man's Land’, ‘Null And Void’, ‘Rubber Transmission’, ‘Dark Places’ and ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik’), and written the soundtrack for three films - ‘Impurity’ (2014), ‘Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict’ (2015, in production), and ‘The Mask Within’ (2015, in production).
Rob currently lives in North Manchester with his wife, Hannah.
Doorways by Rob Shedwick is a heavy track! His dirty electro house style fuses Wolfgang Gartner-esque grinding beats with the more melodic trance sounds of say, Paul Van Dyke. The end result is an addictive and heavily contrasting array of sounds that keeps me curious while listening.
Rob Shedwick has the instinctive ability to capture the mood of a book in musical form. His music is dark, lyrical (without lyrics) and intelligent.
Rob Shedwick is a brilliant and thoroughly consummate professional. The majority of music featured in my debut movie, IMPURITY, and my following feature, THE MASK WITHIN, was composed by Rob. He won the gig with the quality, vigour, and sheer scope of his amazing compositions. He is a twisted Vangelis, a contemporary Beethoven, a bleak and frightening Hans Zimmer for the digital psychopath generation… his music has real depth – it truly moves you; it unnerves and yet satisfies you, with constant rollercoaster twists and subtle surprises that fill you up like a jug full of crack chaos. There is only one word I can use to describe Rob Shedwick – genius.
