Producer and guitarist Etherwood discovered drum'n'bass during the late '90s but didn't release his first production until 2012. Technically, the first recording to bear his name was a Jakwob and Etherwood remix of Lana Del Rey's "Video Games"; he also played guitar as part of Jakwob's band. He made his proper debut that November when he appeared on Hospital Records' Sick Music 3 compilation with "Give It Up," an emotive track laced with multiple melodic keyboard lines. The similarly emotive "Spoken" was placed on Hospitality Drum & Bass 2013 in January 2013, and the producer's first album, a self-titled set with appearances from the likes of Nu:Tone, Laurelle Robichaud, Georgia Yates, and Hybrid Minds, was released on Hospital's Med School division that November. The album was a minor commercial success, but was hailed by fans and critics alike, and Etherwood soon became a firm favorite with the drum'n'bass crowd. His second album, Blue Leaves, followed two years later, and his third, In Stillness, early in 2018; recorded in total solitude in the wilds of Finland, it featured the lushest, most poignant music he'd made to date, while incorporating more live elements than ever before.
