His ‘Pilote’ project has been on the go for nigh on 12 years, releasing five albums and multiple singles and EP’s in that time, gleefully skipping between the genres causing confused record store owners to file him under everything from Drum and Bass to Ambient, Soundtrack to 2Step. He was a founder member of Brighton’s seminal Fly Casual label and has also provided remixes for the likes of Turin Brakes, Fujiya and Miyagi, Fiona Soe Paing and A Lazarus Soul.
His work has been used on various film, TV and documentary projects including several series’ of renowned mindbender Derren Brown, Brazilian crime caper ‘O ‘Homem Do Ano’ as well as the US version of the hit C4 show ‘Queer as Folk’ and Canadian travel documentary ‘Departures’. One tune has even provided the soundtrack to a pair of mating gazelle…
Presently, Mr Cullen is holed up in North East Somerset, polishing off the sixth Pilote album, entitled “The Slowdown” a deft combination of traditional guitar and banjo picking, lush soundscapes and rhythmical hocus pocus.
