In 2004, cinch (Cam Smith) and Ryan Trann met while studying audio engineering at the Art Institute of Vancouver-Burnaby. They became friends and created “Inkwell”, a product of two minds from vastly different backgrounds. The two bring their musical flavours together to produce a unique combination of techno and house; aggressiveness and subtelty. Rocking homemade gear in their live performance, these two Canadians are involved in all aspects of techno production. Truly jacks of all trades, you’ll find them designing sounds, hardware, and software, all as a means to an end; a seriously bumpin’ dancefloor. Minimal Techno is the backbone of their set, but it often veers in other more diverse territory without warning. Their spontaneity and improvisation when playing live, provides for a unique experience each time and the energy they put forth on stage translates to the studio effortlessly. Their productions vary, mixing genres and ideals, but in the end it always comes out sounding fresh and clean. Based in Vancouver, they’ve been performing in and around western Canada since 2006 as a part of the Danksoul Recordings crew, with whom they release with.
