Colin Cameron Allrich (born 1982, Plymouth, Massachusetts) is a self-taught Los Angeles-based musician, remixer, audio engineer and record producer.[1] Colin's career began when he became part of the first wave of musicians releasing music digitally with MP3.com's launch in 1998.[2] During these early years he was known for experimenting with meshing analog sampling and computer sequencing using Jeskola Buzz. Since then Colin has forged a multi-genre approach to music, working out of his "Cell Studio" creating original compositions and remixes as heard on: FOX's Bones (TV series), MTV's The People's Choice Awards and HBO's True Blood.[3] Colin has also branched out into film work, supplying a song (as his Slighter moniker) to Lionsgate Films soundtrack to Blood Out and his own scores to independent films.[4]

Colin has worked as a remixer and producer for numerous music labels worldwide,[5] most notably his remixes for UK labels Lost Language[6] (Space Manoeuvers' "Stage One") and Adjust Recordings (Dan Welton's "Lisopain"). His remix of "Lisopain" was well received by DJ Hernán Cattáneo who included it in his "Sequential"[7] mixed compilation for Renaissance Records which was distributed stateside by Thrive Records and worldwide with BMG Records.

Colin is also the adopted son of American screenwriter and painter, Steve Allrich.
