    RAIDEN - OFFKEY - VOODOO - RENEGADE HARDWARE - TEMAH

    Christopher Jarman’s aka Raiden’s musical story has been somewhat of a rollercoaster. They say music is the key, and in this case it most certainly was. He was living in the grey steel town of Portsmouth-each day was passing like the day before, slowly seeing his dreams slip through his fingers- yet in despair he found hope, a moment of clarity, a signal to the future- this came in the form of his landmark track ‘Fallin’, a piece of music that would launch him into the stars, and he would never look back, relocating to the silent depths of Tallinn, Estonia.

    After signing with legendary drum n bass imprint Renegade Hardware Raiden worked hard at creating his own identity and as a result earned a strong support network of artists and fans alike. His sound would walk the tightrope between Techno and drum n bass, in love with the ethos of techno and unable to let go of his love for big bass and breaks.

    Along this journey Raiden decided that the time was right to start his own label- something that would represent him with no compromises- it was with this thought that Offkey was born, in order to separate itself from the masses Raiden released his manifesto ‘techno brain, drum n bass body’ and with the label launched and almost unheard of artist roster- a very brave move that would pay off- his crew would explode onto the scene, and there would be no let up. The label has released some fantastic music and is now maturing into a different beast, but still a beast nonetheless.

    Artistically there is much more to come from Raiden, he will be releasing more music for the mighty Renegade Hardware, his own imprint Offkey Music will continue to release the cream of what this music has to offer and there will be long players from Raiden alongside singles.

    OPTICAL – Metro - Virus Recordings

    Ed Rush & Optical (aka Ben Settle and Matt Quinn) contributed severely to the evolution of drum & bass long before their studio partnership was born. Ed Rush helped mould the techstep sound as far back as 1993. Ed Rush tracks were featuring heavily in the sets of premier DJs and his beats found homes on an array of labels including No U-Turn, Metalheadz and Prototype. Tracks like ‘Kilimanjaro’ and ‘Skylab’ truly cemented his place as a drum & bass pioneer. The dark, brooding sound he helped craft was in stark contrast to the jazzier flavours that were more widespread at the time, and helped pave the way for the likes of Bad Company and Tech Itch in years to come.

    Optical's path to the top of drum & bass was somewhat different but equally pivotal. After graduating from the free party scene Optical spent years developing his unique engineering skills, setting up Metro Records with his brother Jamie (aka Matrix) along the way. His first release on the label was the mighty ‘Shining’ and it wasn't long before massive releases on Metalheadz ‘To Shape the Future’ and Prototype ‘Moving 808s’ firmly instilled his name in the minds of DJs and producers everywhere. He also found time to apply his production skills to Grooverider's debut album ‘Mysteries of Funk’ and was given production credits on Dom & Roland's debut long player Industry.

    And then came the meeting of minds. When Ed Rush & Optical first got in the studio together the resulting cuts were mind-blowing. ‘Funktion’ and ‘Naked Lunch’ on V Recordings were a breath of fresh air to a scene flooded with sub-standard jump-up records and were battered by every DJ worth their weight in dub plates. In the knowledge that they were on to something special their own imprint Virus Records was born. After releasing several quality 12's the duo created what is still considered to be one of the most important drum & bass albums ever - Wormhole. This claustrophobic, funk-fuelled collection still sounds as fresh today as it was then, with notable classics such as ‘Compound’ and ‘Point Blank’ setting the standard that many are still trying unsuccessfully to duplicate today. At this point in time remix offers were coming flooding in with Roni Size's Watching Windows and Ram Triolgy's Mindscan being the most sought-after of their re-workings. The post-Wormhole era also saw them step-up their DJing schedules immensely as the duo became more and more in demand.

    Skip to 2011 Ed Rush & Optical are as much an integral part of drum & bass as they ever were. Their DJing commitments span the four corners of the globe and we can expect much ground-breaking material to come from the Virus Recordings camp.
