To finish off 2018 we introduce Colony, a duowith past releases on labels such as Context Audio, and two new heaters on our label (our store), we caught up to find out what makes him tick.
Bad Company - The Nine
G: For me, this has always been what drum and bass is for me. Hard hitting drums with a rolling bass line. Smooth and linear with little twists and turns along the way.
Current Value - Falsify ft. Xtrah
G: Over the years I have really grown fond of Current Values refined sound design and punchy drums. I remember when this track came out, I couldn't get enough of it.
Teddy Killers - New Drums
G: Back in the days of collecting vinyl Bad Taste Records were no doubt the biggest part of my collection. I remember this track specifically when it came out. The drums are just totally relentless. Definitely left a mark on me.
The Prodigy - Breathe
C: I wouldn't have even bothered without this tune existing.
Pendulum - Slam
C: I'm not an original OG junglist like a lot of people, I was heavy into Prodigy and Chemical Brothers and all the big beat thing, but I kinda didn't bother with D&B in the early days before this tune. First time I heard this tune in my friend's car with his ridiculous sub, it kinda blew me away - Once I found out what it was it allowed me to find a lot more music!
Chase & Status - Take Me Away
C: First tune that made me really get D&B; I was at Breaknek in Portsmouth on South Parade Pier, this tune came on that I had heard before but I never really heard it through a rig. Once it dropped it kinda shocked me how different it sounded and really made me look a bit deeper.
