Debut Drum and Bass Takeover at one of SF's Top Night Clubs
The recipient of the first release on the influential Metalheadz Recordings — which he co-founded with Goldie — and an early inspiration on the jungle star, Doc Scott began producing records in the early days of the '90s, when jungle was in its tender infancy. The ever-joyous strains of rave and hardcore were gradually giving way to darker sounds, more influenced by hip-hop, and few producers did more to birth the dark mid-'90s sound of jungle than Scott. A resident of Coventry, he was early inspired by the heady moods of the Blade Runner soundtrack as well as Detroit figures such as Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson, and after receiving a pair of turntables at the age of 18, he began DJing.
His early recordings for Absolute 2 like NHS, NHS, Vol. 2 and Surgery made him one of the top names in the emerging hardcore scene, and Scott soon became part of the Reinforced Recordings crew, which included Dego and Mark Mac of 4 Hero, and later, Goldie. Scott's 1992 EP for Reinforced, Nasty Habits' As Nasty as I Wanna Be, set the template for darkside drum'n'bass with the classic «Here Come the Drumz.» He and Goldie recorded several tracks together while at Reinforced, then formed Metalheadz in 1994. The Doc Scott single «VIP Drums» proved to be the label's first release, starting out Metalheadz with style and foreshadowing additional releases such as «Far Away» and an update of «Here Come the Drumz» titled «Drumz 95.» Scott recorded as well for LTJ Bukem's Good Looking Records, and set up his own label in 1996.
Drum'n'bass experimentalist UFO! pushes the limits of the genre with its self-described «Blade Runner funk,» an intense blend of pounding assaults and sci-fi atmospherics.
Born Ed Garro, UFO! has released numerous singles on labels in both the United States and abroad, but first came to wide attention with the Enemy Infiltration single, released on Thermal Recordings in 1999. The string arrangement was so memorable that it was even sampled by the respected U.K. label Trouble on Vinyl for a release called Mission Control.
The Future Is Listening, UFO!'s full-length debut, was released on Thermal in 2002. The album layers out-of-control hydraulics, alien communications, and human artifacts over relentless breakbeats for an out-of-this world sound like an extraterrestrial attack.
Since his 4-track synthesizer experiments in the early 90s, Ryan Origin has focused on conveying futuristic beauty via electronic music.
20+ years of involvement with breakbeat culture followed. Drum & Bass became the language he spoke and family he kept.
Now, Origin remains focused on conveying intense emotions and high-design aesthetic with his musical work.
