Ashtech

Ashtech’s career began in his teens as a DJ in Rome. In 1996 he formed the reggae band ‘Jahng’ and one year later released his first record, produced by the famous Italian band Almamegretta’s dub master D.Rad - the one to introduce Ashtech to the sounds and techniques of dub. In 1998 Ashtech was invited to join Almamegretta as bass player and he went on to co-write and record three albums with the band.

During his collaboration with Almamegretta, Ashtech performed in a number of tours at festivals and events nationwide, playing to crowds of up to 700,00 people and sharing the stage with international artists such as Asian Dub Foundation, Tricky, The Wailers, Erykah Badu, Mory Kante, Compay Segundo, Groove Armada.

As well as his work with Almamegretta, Ashtech collaborated with other producers, wrote a number of film scores, and acted in the movie “Ultimo Piano” which was shown at the Venice Film Festival in 2003.

In 2004 he started working on his own solo album, ‘Walkin’ Target’ and decided to move to London to further his career. There he met Gaudi and provided a track for his album Continvvm which paved the way for the eventual collaboration between the two on the final version of the ‘Walkin’ Target’ album.
