UK producer, DJ and owner of concept label Polymath, Third Son makes his debut on Skint Records this October with Assimo. Rob Birch of the mighty Stereo MC’s lends his unique vocal talent to the proceedings.
“After experimenting with a new favourite synth of mine, I came up with a melody that jumps between tonal and atonal, and a groove that had quite a raw energy. Listening at home I thought a male indie vocal might add something. Enter Stereo MC’s who I’d been a fan of for years. I was thrilled that they were into the idea of working on the record, and they delivered a top line that’s really special.” Third Son
Released: 5th October 2018

On Assimo, Third Son has created a prime production ready to be slung headlong on to dance floors across the globe. It is rife with warped, electro elements and glitchy cosmic synths. All complimented by Rob’s unmistakable vocals.
Third Son, the alias of Brit Joseph Price Thomas, has music in his blood. Classically trained by his music professor father, his musical tastes encompass a broad range of genres, which is shown through his enigmatic live shows and recent ambient productions. He established his own imprint in 2016, Polymath, a concept label that gives its artists the freedom to create tracks within a given theme. Stereo MC’s came to the public’s attention with their hit Connected, released in the early 90s. Since then the band have enjoyed a lengthy touring career, recently performing at Boomtown Festival as well as releasing a plethora of albums.
