    S.P.Y [Soul:R - Metalheadz - Critical - Innerground]


    Brazilian born Carlos Lima aka S.P.Y is fast becoming one of the hottest talents in drum and bass. With over 28 different tracks forthcoming on a wide selection of imprints including: Soul:r, Innerground, Liquid V, Critical, Advanced, CIA, Spearhead, and Cylon Records, he is a perfect example of a truly versatile producer. His music is regularly supported by the likes of Marky, Goldie, Marcus Intalex, Total Science, Commix, C.A.B.L.E, Bailey, Bryan Gee, and Doc Scott to name a few, and his production techniques are also the topic of conversation on many message boards. Just how did his career in music begin?

    Passionate about, and affected by, a mass of superlative music around him S.P.Y knew from the age of 12 he wanted to be a DJ. While his friends played football, S.P.Y was more interested in watching DMC championship videos and finding ways to get himself heard, DJ’ing regularly at local charity nights and school events, playing everything from hip-hop, to jazz, to disco.

    In 1992, Carlos became a frequent fixture at an underage matinee club. DJ’ing every Sunday afternoon, playing acid house and techno to the crowds that wanted to listen, Carlos was completely dedicated to making people dance.

    In 1996, the musical landscape had begun to shift in tandem with S.P.Y’s taste in music. Carlos moved away from acid house and techno and turned his hand to the dark and deep depths of jungle and drum and bass.

    Working alongside a huge network of DJ friends, Carlos weaved his way to the top of many promoters lists, and before long, he was playing in a multitude of nightclubs, entertaining thousands with a selection of his most favourite drum and bass tracks.

    Come early 2000, Carlos could no longer pursue his musical dream. The level of external pressures and responsibilities on his shoulders were grand. Instead he took a job as a full-time junior graphic designer. Carlos stuck at this for three years, fast moving up the ranks. But as good as Carlos was at this, it wasn’t enough for him.

    In 2003, S.P.Y took the brave step of migrating to the UK to study English. Fascinated by the records shops of Soho, Carlos spent his afternoons off checking the latest releases and searching for the trendiest emergent styles of the underground scene. The buzz Carlos got from doing this affirmed that music was his calling.
