Current darling of the drum & bass scene, Rockwell has emerged over the last year as one of those rare breaths of fresh air who break down the boundaries and push the sound of the genre into new unchartered territories. Anyone who manages to span labels as diverse as Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy, DJ Friction’s Shogun Audio and Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings has got to be doing something right.
The Cheltenham-ish born, London-living producer favours sparse but intricate beats and rhythms with a teasing blend of dark and light moods and textures, creating something that at times reflects moody tech step of the past and at others serves up something totally new. Influenced by golden age ‘90s hip-hop and more recently by like-minded collaborators like Icicle, Alix Perez and Zero T, he’s one of the brightest sparks in D&B right now, and we’re pleased to get this forward-thinking Podcast from him
