Drumsound & Bassline Smith
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 entrenched themselves as three of the finest drum’n’bass tastemakers on the planet courtesy of the blue chip label Technique Recordings – an imprint that celebrates 18 years of killer dancefloor joints in 2017.
2016 has seen non-stop manoeuvres from UK DnB kings Drumsound & Bassline Smith in every direction.
Production-wise they’ve shown their broadest breadth ranging from shimmering vocal gold of "Catch Me Here" to some furious firepower on Playaz, V and their own label Technique.
Label-wise Technique has delivered consistently throughout the year with at least two key releases every month courtesy of a global squad that ranges from Kronology in the US to Spectrem in Australia and many many others in between.
DJ-wise it’s the same intense level of activity as they represent in three levels: internationally (as standard), locally as they help to rebuild their hometown’s club culture and online with a weekly Facebook live stream that regularly pulls in tens of thousands of drum & bass lovers.
Drumsound & Bassline Smith - Through The Night
One of the UK's finest DJ/Producers and one of the founders of Formation Records, DJ SS aka Leroy Small is an original breakbeat pioneer who has made an immense contribution to today's drum & bass sound.
SS is one of the very select DJ / Producers who has been there right from the start, due to the hard work and dedication that he puts into his music. When the hardcore scene exploded SS was there and hasn't looked back. He and his partner Eidris started promoting their own parties called Total Kaos every Friday in their hometown of Leicester. They also put on one of the first large indoor parties at Donnington Park in the summer of 91. It was an amazing success and 6000 people danced till dawn.
DJ SS has an enormous list of tracks and used various aliases. Over the years he's had countless releases on Formation Records as well as doing remix work for other artists. He has released such tracks as 'The Psycho E.P', 'Rhythm For Reasons', 'Breakbeat Pressure', the Drum & Bass anthem 'Black', with the highlight being ' Lighter' which was Formation Records best seller, reaching the number 1 spot in the Music Week dance chart and reaching number 68 in the music charts. It is a track that has remained incredibly popular and still continues to be played years on.
Not only has his label Formation during the years had many big tunes released, they have also had many big DJ/producers release records on the label. The list is strong, big and endless including Carl Cox, Grooverider, Shy FX, Ray Keith, Bryan Gee, Frost, Roni Size, Krust, Kenny Ken, Ratty, Matrix, John B, Mickey Finn, Twisted Individual and Distorted Minds.
In between this huge success he has also been the driving force behind some of the finest talent now established within the scene, his most recent sensation arriving in the form of Twisted Individual, who had made a huge impact on the scene with releases on Formation Records and sister labels Reformed and New Identity, as well as his debut album Tooled Up. He has also convinced Zen, old friend of Twisted Individual, to take the plunge and move from London to Leicester to join the Formation team after several releases on 5HQ Recordings and the last couple of years has seen his debut appearance on Formation Records with Minefield as part of the 100th release, and sister labels Reformed and New Identity.
