With a musical career spanning almost 20 years, originally as a studio engineer from 1993 and then under a number of aliases, the masterful drum & bass craftsman SURVIVAL has expertly shaped his personal sound. Building up a formidable back catalog, with regular releases on Dispatch, Symmetry, Critical, Exit, Shogun, DNAudio & Quarantine, Survival has also generated a spate of brilliant solo and collaborative releases with Silent Witness, Alix Perez & Octane & DLR for his own label, Audio Tactics.
Alongside further work with dBridge, Fierce, Sabre & Ant TC1, and Break both his solo work and collaborations have become increasingly sought after, whilst productions with Silent Witness have continued to mature, forming a remarkably diverse joint sound; it’s a partnership of the highest calibre. Dispatch Recordings are set to release an album from the duo, in early 2013 ‘In From The Wild’ that showcases the pair’s exceptional talents, working alongside artists such as Klute, Cern, Sara Mitra & Submotion Orchestra lead, singer Ruby Wood.
When combining the new album with an exceptional release history dating back to the mid 90’s and an exciting new venture into deeper bass music under the alias of both South Soul Project, and Basenji you can understand why Survival is so highly regarded within the scene; a true architect of the genre.
