Sydney-based, classically trained, DJ / producer Dylan Martin (middle name “Royalston”) has been listening to Drum + Bass since ’93, producing for 12 years and DJ-ing for about 10. A man of many talents, Royalston is also an illustrator / designer and first got into music production when he was making a soundtrack to a 3D animation. His music is characterised by a raw, analogue sound with a tech-y edge (thanks to plenty of hardware like his favourite Korg MS-20) and he has released on labels such as Bad Taste and Black Acre before signing exclusively to Med School in 2012.
Royalston cut his teeth on Med School with “The Test” – a track which appeared on “New Blood 010″ and remains one of his favourite tunes to date. He swiftly followed this up with his first vinyl release, the vitriolic “Glitchbitch”, dedicated to his ex girlfriend, on “More Blood 010″. Having wowed us with a release on Bad Taste and a super sharp remix of Art vs Science – “Magic Fountain”, which started life as a bootleg, was made legit and subsequently received heavy support from London Elektricity, and currently has over 250,000 plays on YouTube. In November 2011, he returned with more musical mayhem in his exceptional, four-track “Cerulean Blue” EP.
After a short break Royalston returned this year with his album ‘OCD’. 18 tracks of profound bass and jungle influence. A showcase of his fine production and attention to details.
