My name is Ian, also known as EAN I’m based in East London. I do quite a wide variety of music outside the DnB genre, so this release is a good way of introducing myself to the scene.

How did you get into music? And how did get into production?

Himalia

Give us a little introduction of yourself. 
Hi! My name is Dave Hinman, I’m 25 and from a city called Lincoln in the Midlands. I’ve been involved in music in my local scene for quite some time as I’ve been in local bands & producing for myself & others. I’ve played at a few clubs in my town & I’m getting to play at a few festivals this year too which I’m super stoked about!

How did you get into music? And how did get into production?
I first got into music from an early age. I started playing piano when I was around 8 years old then through school I started playing guitar which then led me to playing in bands. I used to play like really heavy death-core like stuff so switching over to something more a little mellow was nice. As I grew up my influences changed a lot. We used to go to a lot of D&B & Dubstep nights so I think that helped me get into production, as a few people I knew were producing at the time. I knew Jakwob from living in the same city when we were younger. I approached him when I had my first E.p ready and he released it through his label Boom Ting. Continue reading…

War Machine, London UK.

How did you get into music? And how did get into production?
When I was about 13 my mate got decks for his birthday and was instantly hooked, like many others getting the travel card on a Saturday & heading up to HMV and Blackmarket Records. Production always felt like the next step for me and I got involved in a similar way toStu / Bomh who I own Violation Music with. While doing engineering at university I just picked up a lot from watching him & reading a lot of material. Continue reading…

Dark Soul

Give us a little introduction of yourself. 
Hi my name is Evgenii Terbisov. I’m 25 and  I’m from little town (Niznii Tagil) in Russia. Music is my life, I cant submit it. I sadly don’t get the chance to DJ in clubs as often as I would like because Drum and Bass is not particular popular over here.

How did you get into music? And how did get into production?
I have been into music since childhood since attending music school when I was 6 years old. I was into electronic music during the time of Prodigy, Scooter, and so on.  As soon as we got a computer at home I wanted to produce my own music.  At first I struggled and later  I gave up but in 2006, my friend introduced me to new music. I started listening to the darker side of drum and bass including artists such as Limewax, Current Value, and so on. This gave me the push to head back into the studio and hit the sequencer. Later I started to follow heavyweights such as Noisia, Phace, Black Sun Empire, Spor, realising that this was the sound and direction I wanted to move with. Continue reading…

Microfunk CrewFor people that may not be aware of you… Give us a little introduction of yourself. 
Bop and Oak, both live and work in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Bop is that guy who released their third album on Med School, tunes by Oak appeared on Space Cadets, Kos.Mos.Music and he also make techno/breakbeat under “formally unknown” alias.

How did you get into music? And how did get into production?
Oak: As a teenager I discovered Propellerhead’s Rebirth and it was true revelation. Awareness of the fact  that I can create the music as on brother’s tapes was something incredible lol. I think I was messing with Rebith for a year until my friend showed me Fruity Loops then it began.
Bop: I always wondered how electronic music is created. So when my friend give me some CDs with music software I immediately started to install every other program. Fruity Loops 2 was one of the programs I installed, and i like it because most of the other software was very loop-based, but in FL I was able to do my own loops. I still use Fruity Loops (now it’s called FL Studio) these days. Continue reading…
