    Hi DNB Forum crew,

    Just to let you know that Influence Records is back in 2016. First set up in 2008 by Aaron Jay, the label pushes the deeper side of drum and bass.

    In the past, Influence Records has released music from artists such as: Brother, Raw Q, ICR, Sinistarr, Kjell, Bal, Data, Dave Owen, Eveson, Soul Intent, Mr Joseph, Random Movement and Mix Master Doc. It has an ethos of discovering fresh and forward thinking sounds from new and experienced producers alike.

    The kick start the label for 2016, the first release is a co-lab between Lynx and Aaron Jay entitled ‘Walkie Talkie’. Following this, we have two beautifully crafted tunes by Specific – ‘Out of Reach’ and ‘It Could Happen’. You can listen to clips from the Soundcloud link below.

    A little heads up for DNB producers. Influence is looking for new, exciting artists to push in 2016. If you're writing deep, forward thinking, dance floor friendly beats and want your tracks released or featured on future Influence podcasts, email your demos to influencerecordsdnb@gmail.com

    If you could get bal back to produce, that'd be a huge win!
