We're treated to an exceptionally smooth, soulful and varied mix from Komatic. An artist that has been creating tracks of the highest quality on the top tier labels. As well as the smoother sounds, Komatic has also unleashed some huge energetic dancefloor tracks, especially with his in collaborations with Technicolour. Great music from a great producer.
Rotary Motion - Technicolour, Komatic & LSB [Integral Dub]
Komatic is a Bedford based producer, originally from the North East of England. Komatic first found drum and bass through listening to tape packs back in early 1992 / 1993. It was from these packs that Komatic desperately wanted to DJ and be involved. This led to a residency at Raindance, wining the ‘breaking new talent competition’ at Helter Skelter and various pirate radio slots, not to mention being a runner up in a national student DJ competition to find the best student DJ in the country, held at the Ministry of Sound. After some hard saving for a computer, he hasn’t stopped making music since.
Over the last few years, things have started to progress. The first was making it onto BBC 1xtra’s playlist with ‘Ring The Alarm’, Komatic’s first release. Komatic continued to get support from 1xtra with DJ’s Chrissy Chris and Bailey all running tunes such as ‘Viscous’, ‘Night Drive’, ‘Solution’ and ‘Human Kinetic’. Support from Nerm & DCode on Radio 1 has also followed, with his ‘Black and Gold remix’ becoming a permanent fixture on the shows. ‘Viscous’ has since been signed to Spearhead, ‘Lucid’ and ‘Night Fell’ signed to Phunkfiction, ‘Jazz Club’ and ‘Remain Free’ to Frequency Factory and ‘Simple Complexities’ to Ennex Records. This exposure also landed him a weekly radio show on Bassdrive.
Komatic has since been working with Technique’s ‘Technicolour’, and so far their styles of production and music have been a perfect compliment to each other. The collaborations are going from strength to strength, and definitely tunes to look out for in the future.

MUTATED FORMS (Grid/Metalheadz/Spearhead)
This diverse trio, originally from Estonia, have been making a huge mark on the dnb scene in the UK and worldwide with their broad diverse sound and high end productions. Mutated Forms continue to be amongst the very best for pushing drum'n'bass into new directions.
Right Now - S.I.N & Mutated Forms [Spearhead]
Impressed by the quality and diversity of the music emerging from the Mutated studio a certain Twisted Individual signed several tracks to labels within his Grid Recordings stable, and in the early stages of 2009, after working on single projects for a couple of years Mutated Forms signed exclusively to the Grid Recordings group.
Since then there has been one big change within the group, with one third of the outfit, G-Ruff, relocating to Birmingham, UK. Thanks to the amazing advances in technology over the past decade being several hundred miles apart doesn’t seem to have affected this trio’s creativity. The quality and diversity of music emerging from Mutated Forms studios in the UK and Estonia have made them one of the hottest talents in the Drum and Bass world. Receiving regular support from a wide cross section of tastemakers from Metalheadz Goldie to BBC legend Fabio, this trio is becoming renound for producing some of the freshest and most innovative music around. Never restricted or pigeon holed to a particular sub-genre, their sound has constantly mutated and evolved.
It should come as no surprise then that the likes heavyweight DJ's such as, Marky, Goldie, Grooverider, Bailey, London Elektricity, Hype and SS, are currently supporting their tracks on the circuit, alongside spins from many of the most forward thinking producers in the game.
Tipped as one’s to watch in 2011 by the legendary Fabio on BBC Radio 1 and with a number of remixes, new productions and an album in the pipeline, keep your eyes peeled for their next move!
Scribbler: TRISECTOR ( Med School)
January 06, 2011 12:34 PM PST
An incredibly talented artist, that takes the murky genres of dnb, and disects them further into his own unique variety of raw sounds. His productions get better and better, so be sure to check out his backcatalogue, to understand why his tunes have been in the record bags of the worlds top DJs since his very first single.
Failsafe - Trisector [Lifestyle]
Trisector aka Otto Hassinen was inspired to create music from an early age having been heavily influenced by the music blasting out of his Commodore 64 and the Bruce Springsteen and Beatles tapes his dad played in the car. He got his first PC at the age of 11 and it wasn't long before he was experimenting with tracker software and samples to create all kinds of different styles of music. After a voyage of musical discovery taking him through the realms of punk rock, indie, dub techno and IDM, Otto discovered the amen break thanks to an LTJ Bukem mix CD and suddenly found himself primarily listening to and creating drum+bass.
Still fascinated by a wide variety of music, he unleashed his first release in 2004 on UK label Heavy Disco as one half of Finnish breakbeat/dubstep duo Takomo. Aided by DJ support from breakbeat heavyweights Annie Nightingale, Jay Cunning and Tayo, ten heavyweight Takomo releases followed on labels such as Botchit, Destructive and Urban Graffiti. DJ dates came thick and fast, presenting the boys with a chance to play all over Europe from Finland to Spain and Russia to the UK.
Otto rekindled his relationship with drum & bass in 2007 and began redeveloping his sound at 170bpm under the name Trisector. He quickly gained support from Blu Mar Ten, ASC, Muffler, Physics and Resound and it wasn’t long before Hospital Records signed his tunes for their sister label Med School Music. In 2009 the debut Trisector single "Morning Rain" hit an unsuspecting drum+bass fraternity and was championed by High Contrast, Nerm (BBC radio) and London Elektricity amongst others. Trisector followed up with another Med School single "Lifeforms" at the end of the year, this time finding it’s way into the record bags of Survival, S.P.Y, Kasra, Loxy, Mutated Forms and Chris.SU.

We know he's an incredible producer, but this mix has affirmed his capabilities of also being able to smash it up on the decks, big set!
The Enemy Within - Concord Dawn ft. Thomas Oliver [Uprising]
Stylistically inhabiting a musical landscape populated with driving jump-up drum breaks, angular melodic synthesiser patterns and driving pulse-like bass lines, as a musical entity TREi is a genuine composer and artist. In the space of what counts as four short years behind the consoles as a DJ and a producer, TREi has risen to the upper echelon of drum and bass in New Zealand. Resultantly, his music production and DJ skills are now raising eyebrows in all the right places across the globe.
In October 2009 TREi unveiled his debut album INNUENDO, through Samurai Music, quickly following it up with a successful New Zealand tour, his third DJ foray into the European market.
On the scene side of things, TREi linked deals to release fresh vinyl records in 2010 on respected international d&b record labels, Uprising Records and DJ Marky's Innerground Recordings and received extensive DJ support from DJ Hype and Andy C via a stellar collaboration with Kiwi d&b production pioneers Concord Dawn.
Having spent 2009 formalizing his blueprint for global success, 2010 is TREi’s year to show the world what he’s really made of - INNUENDO style.
