Secret Mommy, aka Andy Dixon, is a Canadian musician and graphic designer, who gained notoriety as a member of the North Vancouver punk rock band d.b.s. He founded the record label Ache Records, and later played in The Red Light Sting. Beginning in 2003, during the final months of The Red Light Sting, he began to cut up audio recordings he made himself and compose glitch/IDM music under the alias Secret Mommy, though he used The Epidemic for his first solo release.

So, we love hearing some punk influence in IDM. Punk is okay, but punk with glitch / IDM is even better. Check out the video below. Cool stuff.

Secret Mommy reminds us of Four Tet, only we got bored with Four Tet, and Secret Mommy has a sound that is better. Don’t really know why, but this recent discovery is good.
