There was one day an act from Germany that appeared with a breathtaking debut CD called "Low Profile Darkness" and became quickly the biggest name in violent drum'n'bass on Earth, producing four full lengths album for one of the genre's most reknown label worldwide (Position Chrome), as well as plenty of 12", singles, and side-projects (mē, Kate Mosh, Rich Kid...). Panacea, the icon.
There was one day one guy, also from Germany, whose first 12" took everybody by surprise and became one of the most praised disc on Hands Productions, and whose complex and super-aggressive drum'n'bass album is currently kicking everybody's butt. Needle Sharing, the madman.
And there was one day a newcomer from Sweden, whose demo blasted my own personal ears so bad I just had to release his deep, violent and standard-setting first album ("Subfusc"), and whose future looks bright. Tarmvred, the challenger.
