Kevin McHugh (aka AMBIVALENT) is a native of Washington, DC and resident of New York City. His musical development began in DC where he was influenced by the broad nature of that city’s
music scene. Early exposure to acidhouse and industrial side-byside with DC’s homegrown go-go and hardcore punk scenes deeply influenced his music.
After a brief period in London, Kevin moved to New York in 1996. He began producing a music series inside the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage for Creative Time. Over the next 5 years he produced events with artists such as Thomas Brinkmann, Dimbiman, Carl Craig, Ryoji Ikeda, Pole, and many more. It was during this time that
he began making a connection with Minus. He went on to produce events in New York featuring friends such as Magda, Troy Pierce and his roommate Jesse (Heartthrob) as well as Matthew Dear, Akufen and Sammy Dee.
He moved to Berlin in 2004 to help Richie Hawtin produce the Plastikman live concert. He later returned to
New York and re-dedicated himself to producing music inspired by his friends. He answered an ad for an
apartment, and moved in with a DJ named Camea. She later created Clink Recordings. He DJs regularly
in New York, and on his internet radio show, The Nerd Tank, with Camea. He has releases and remixes
(past and forthcoming) on Minus, Clink, Klickhaus, Esperanza, and Leftroom.
