Dub-One, otherwise known as Olly Harmer, is unleashing some serious breakbeat pressure for reputable imprints like Scientific Wax and Renegade Recordings. A steadfast ally of Breakage and Equinox, Dub-One has asserted himself as a credible force in the dubwize drumfunk community. "Cry of War" digs back a little deeper for that extra edge - delivering a nasty, caustic affair of timestretched amens, NWA samples and razor sharp reece basslines.

There are at least eight artists with the name Matrix: 1. Matrix is the pseudonym of London based drum and bass producer and DJ Jamie Quinn. Quinn started his musical career as one half of drum and bass duo Turbosound, who signed to DJ SS's F Project Records label, an offshoot of Formation Records. Their name was changed for them to "International Rudeboys", which while it perhaps didn't suit them as well as they would have liked, nonetheless this brought further success on Formation Records proper.

Avid music lover.
Breakbeat-o-holic. Those are some of the descriptions that fit Fanu.
While living in the rather dark and cold North of Finland, he got into the jungle thing in the mid-nineties – soon after hearing some electronic music during the earlier years of the decade. Around that time, he also started experimenting with electronic music and sampling for the first time.
Both Ed Rush and Optical are the co-heads of a drum and bass record label called Virus Recordings, based in London, UK. Both have earned acclaim separately, with Optical engineering tracks on Goldie and Grooverider's albums and releasing some excellent solo tunes on the likes of Prototype, 31, and Metro. Ed Rush also has countless releases, notably on No U-Turn, where he and Nico first emphasized the dark era of drum and bass with the masterpiece album Torque, and Metalheadz, where he produced such classics as "The Raven" and "Locust".
Source Direct were a jungle / drum & bass production outfit from St. Albans in the United Kingdom, consisting of Phil Aslett and Jim Baker. Their music would best be described as a combination of intensely complex, compressed drum edits, often suffused with a synthesis of menacing soundscapes and jazz-funk samples. They were largely considered to possess a similar production sensibility to Photek, but with a more hostile edge.
