    Basically, i was talking to Camo the other day (from Camo & Krooked) & we were sending him some bits. As we were chattin he noticed how our names (Mattix & Futile) & style of dnb were pretty similar to Matrix & Futurebound. It was all a coinsidence with our names & theirs but Camo said that it could stop us from getting well known in the dnb scene because people may think we are trying to copy Matrix & Futurebound. Do you lot think hes got quite a good point & that we should look into changing our names before we (hopefully) get anything signed?

    no i agree you should keep it real! Leave it as it is, you might regret it later. I think if you are going to make it nothing will hold you back. Good luck x

    I agree with people saying you should just keep it...

    As long as your doing your own thing then no one is going to be comparing them.

    Do what you want to do. At the end of the day its the tunes that matter, as long as they are big the name doesnt matter for shit!

    Ahh no way i was actually thinkin about this the other day, how strange!

    I did actually think it sounded quite similar to Matrix and Futurebound so personally I would think about switching it round like Jacomelli said, just to be on the safe side. At least you've considered it early in the game :)
