< BIO >
Drum & Bass would not be the same without Drumsound & Bassline Smith (aka Andy Wright, Benjamin Wiggett and Simon Bassline Smith). Together the trio have body-slammed dancefloors from Derby to Durban and established themselves as three of the finest Drum & Bass tastemakers on the planet, courtesy of the blue chip label Technique Recordings – an imprint that will celebrate 20 years of killer dancefloor joints in 2019.

The magic has been bubbling ever since Wright and Wiggett met Bassline Smith at one of Derby’s mentalist Technique club nights in the summer of 1998. The Drumsound pair had been crafting beats for a year, having originally started as a crew of six artists, while Bassline Smith had carved out a reputation as one of D&B’s most influential players, with a career stretching back to the early ‘80s.

Together, they enjoy an impressively diverse arsenal of music that’s ensured their place atop the D&B scene for over a decade. A peep through Wright’s background and you’ll find he’s a classically trained musician with a strong background in indie rock – an ideal platform for harnessing the energetic groove that makes Drumsound & Smith’s productions slide over the dancefloor. His Drumsound compadre Wigget has been a diehard D&B head since the womb, while also tipping his hat to his Jamaican roots. Veteran Bassline Smith has been a funk and soul connoisseur for over 25 years and knows his way around a dancefloor blindfolded.

Simon James and Ben Hall – AKA bass music masters Delta Heavy – first met at Nottingham University back in ’03. It’s a friendship and partnership that’s proved pivotal to both of them both personally and professionally. As a duo, their respective skill sets were perfectly matched: Simon was the one with the more traditional musical background while Ben had a penchant for sound engineering. Both loved DJ culture though and both spun. United by a love of underground club nights like Stealth and Detonate in Nottingham, their passion for music from drum ‘n’ bass to house was honed after many a night and early morning dancing ‘til dawn. Needless to say, after they graduated, Messrs James and Hall made their way to London. Wasting no time with their electronic ambitions, both acquired computer software. Says Si over coffee in Kings Cross: “Because we both had the same interests in music, we thought we’d align our knowledge.”

“When we started coming through via Ram, the genre barriers had dropped around bass music a lot and we were keen to bridge those gaps and work across different genres: we said to Ram at the very beginning that we didn’t want to just make pure drum ‘n’ bass music, we wanted to do something different. Some people aren’t happy when you do a lot of different stuff so finding a way that incorporates different genres that feels like us took some time. When we made our album, we found that comfortable space.” says Simon.

Looking ahead, Delta Heavy have several key releases in the bag, including a collaboration with Dirty Audio which is being released on both Ram and Monstercat from North America.

Are there grand plans? We’ll let Ben have the final word. “When we write these tunes, you never know when things are going to pop up! Are there grand plans? Just to keep writing music! So for now, … the live show, that’s the main focus,” smiles Ben.


From unwavering electro house and trap beats, to metal, dubstep and drum n’ bass – Christopher who birthed this thumping artist vibe called ‘poo rave’ has got it nailed across the musical spectrum. Signed to legendary label ‘Kannibalen Records’ this bearded loco has some sure heat to lift bass amongst the masses! Releasing tracks alongside Kayzo, Command Q & Lektrique as well as writing the official White Stage anthem this year for Defqon.1, Seek N Destroy is sure to have you quenching your butt cheeks together so your bowels won’t give way.

The Upbeats’ unique and organic take on 170bpm+ bass music has seen them make their home in the highest echelons of dance music worldwide. Known for their organic and natural sounding drums, The Upbeats are a pillar in the DNB community. The duo have collaborated with stalwarts such as Noisia, Shapeshifter Bad Company, and Mefjus to name a few. In September 2014, their collaborative EP with Shapeshifter, ‘Bloodstream’, reached no.1 in the NZ i-Tunes Charts 2 days after being released.

They have released on major dnb labels including RAM Records, Virus, Blackout and Vision Recordings along with remixing heavy weights such as Ed Rush & Optical, Black Sun Empire, Noisia, Bad Company, and Mutated Forms. 2014 saw them remix Submotion Orchestra’s single, ‘Trust Lust’, for Counter Records/Ninja Tune which was widely praised. In August 2015, they released a new collaborative EP, ‘Dead Limit’ with Noisia, which turned the entire scene on its head.

Clocking up over a hundred shows a year The Upbeats have played at major festivals worldwide including EDC (Vegas), Pukkelpop (Belgium), Urban Art Forms (Vienna), Supersonic (India), Exit Festival (Serbia), Outlook Festival (Croatia) and are a staple at the famous Noisia Invites shows and tours, Northern Bass (NZ). They will be at the famous Boomtown Fair, and Dour Festivals amongst many others this summer.

Aspiring Australian based duo Flowidus burst onto the scene and the Ram Records landscape in 2016, with their debut Program release, the From The Storm EP, which exhibited their smooth production, variety and evolving style. Now, the budding production partnership made up of Spillage and Dealt Fairly are back for an even an even bigger 2017. Already having tracks featured on the Ram Records compilation series and having supported DC Breaks on the Australian leg of their worldwide Different Breed tour, Flowidus are now set to unleash their sophomore release on Program, in the form of No Matter / Zulu.

Born just prior to the early 90’s rise of drum & bass, producers Raphael and Wolf have rooted their sound in the form, both as solo artists, and now collaboratively. Their combined passion for good vibes, and being able to share that with their fans was what defined their stage name FLOWIDUS, with both producers being quoted as saying “we want people to come on a journey with us”.
The duo have fused their individual styles to create their sound; one which encapsulates their shared love of driving bass lines and melodic dance floor drum & bass.

Flowidus’ individual parts met at a drum & bass gig in Perth at the beginning of 2015. At the time, Raphael and Wolf were already on the rise as strong solo producers, but after working together on a few tracks, agreed that collectedly they were capable of even more.

The Collective presents Med School Ft. Etherwood & Keeno

The Collective proudly present…

MED SCHOOL Australia / NZ Tour – Adelaide


…more info coming soon 😉

Etherwood is undoubtedly one of the most promising young talents in the scene today. Originally from Lincoln and now living in London, Woody has already captured the imagination of thousands across the globe with his achingly beautiful beats and heartfelt melodies.

Fusing the upbeat energy of drum & bass with the chilled, atmospheric moods of reverb-heavy guitar and delayed piano rolls, it’s hard to believe that Etherwood only started producing drum & bass two years ago. Already he’s received support from Radio One, 1Xtra, Capital FM, XFM, Triple J and Rinse FM and has remixed high profile artists including Lana Del Rey, Jakwob, Gorgon City and Alex Clare.

“Woody” then picked up the award for “Best Newcomer DJ” and “Best Newcomer Producer” at the 2013 D&B Arena awards, bagged a slot with BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Xtra Talent” alongside Crissy Criss, and teamed up with Hospital’s Devonshire duo Fred V & Grafix to lay down the vocals on this year’s summer anthem “Forest Fires”. This forthcoming collaboration has already proved its potential for crossover success by being added to the Radio 1 Playlist over a month before release. As he continues to prove his versatility and talent, Hospital Records invited him to put together their first artist led mix album in over four years, which dropped at the end of May, entitled “Hospital Mixtape: Etherwood”.

As we look to the horizon, things are looking very promising for Woody as he unquestionably holds down the title of man of the moment in the scene. With a signature sound that is both instantly recognisable and deeply compelling, his dedicated fanbase continues to grow in all corners of the globe, all eager to hear what’s next from him

<<< KEENO >>>
Keeno quite simply one of the most exciting young producers to grace the world of drum & bass in recent years, William Keen aka Keeno, is a classically trained, multi-instrumentalist whose music transcends the dancefloor and enters the realms of cinematic beauty.

His debut album, “Life Cycle”, released on Med School in 2014 was a masterpiece, revered by all who took the time to appreciate its craft – a perfect follow up to his debut release, the stunning “Nocturne” EP that entered the world of music late in 2013.

Fast forward a couple of years and Keeno is burning brighter than ever – an accomplished DJ whose style and energy had ingited dancefloors across Europe and beyond.

2016 sees the release of Keeno’s second album, “Futurist”, a sixteen track album that embodies everything that’s speical and unique about Keeno – another step forward for the label and this exceptionally talented producer.
