Cheeky, punk and tons of attitude, it's like [Avant Hard] has distilled electro to it's basic essentials and dispensed with all the rave presets and frills, wooshes and sirens that I hear in so much of this genre. Avant Hard? Hard as f**k! - Afterlife

AVANT HARD is the alter-ego of Liverpool based producer and remixer, George O'Connor. After moving from Birmingham to Liverpool in 2007, George (aka Avant Hard) started a course in Music Technology at the Community College, where he became interested in producing electronic music, inspired by artists such as Justice, Boys Noize, MSTRKRFT, Busy P, Mr. Oizo, Digitalism, and many more. Since then, the interest has flourished into something of an obsession and Avant Hard and his synths and samples have become inseparable.

After finishing college with fairly poor results and choosing not to go onto university or further education, all Avant Hard thinks about is producing and remixing music, synthesisers and DJing... sometimes, on special occasions, he allows himself to think about beer and getting drunk.

As of yet, Avant Hard has not managed to start gigging or DJing due to financial difficulty and a lack of equipment, but he continues to perfect his craft of producing and remixing and is now working on a short EP which he hopes will be ready for official release in 2010.
