Autistici is David Newman. He's from Sheffield, UK and has released works on a variety of excellent labels from 12k through to Hibernate. He runs the rather fabulous Audiobulb label, as well as the Audiomoves digital distribution service. His album 'Amplified Presence' on Home Normal was a bit of a sleeper hit at the end of 2011, with Japanese stores in particular eventually lapping up an album of micro-detailed melodies, found sounds and organic rhythms. The album was highly regarded as one of the best albums of the year in the press, and broke the mould in the somewhat saturated 'drone scene' at the time. He followed this up with a very well received album ('Beneath Peaks' on our friends at Hibernate in 2012). His new album (a collaboration with Justin Varis), will be out as a double-disc release (including some amazing remixes) on our sister label Nomadic Kids Republic later in the year.
