dBridge is a legendary figure in drum & bass. Though his career stretches back to the early 90s, it was in his role as one quarter of the irrepressible drum & bass super-group Bad Company in the late 90s and early 00s that he really stamped his mark on the scene, dominating the sound of drum & bass during that period. Tunes like ‘The Nine’, ‘Planet Dust’ and ‘Nitrous’ are unforgettable classics and are the tip of the iceberg of an incredible back catalogue of work from the foursome.
Since they disbanded, dBridge has carved a superb reputation as a solo artist, with a more refined sound that is no less effective in the clubs, with tunes like ‘True Romance’, ‘Odessa’ and ‘Twilight’ leaving a lasting impression on the scene. His label Exit Records is renowned for quality over quantity, with all releases carrying a touch of class.
He’s a highly sought after DJ, and his widespread appeal is best demonstrated by the fact that he regularly appears at nearly every one of our wide range of drum & bass nights, from the tough beats of Renegade Hardware to the soulful vibes of Swerve, via Ram Records rave-up and Shogun Audio’s slightly more left of centre throw-down.

Opening his new label Detail Recordings in 2010, Lynx is a man on a
mission to deliver only the freshest and most innovative sounds in
underound electronic music. Standout tracks including 'Disco Dodo' and

drum & bass scene but the sheer diversity and quality of Lynx's output
across labels like Soul:r, Creative Source, Digital Soundboy and Bingo

Metalheadz, Hospital and Innerground have shown he remains ahead of
