British Drum & Bass superstar PHOTEK comes stateside.

British Drum & Bass superstar PHOTEK comes stateside for the Stuck on Earth Reunion at Sankeys’s NYC this Feruary 22nd. Here is some info about one of the biggest in the game!

Though Goldie became the first superstar of jungle, the recordings of Rupert Parkes – as Code of Practice, Aquarius, Studio Pressure, the Truper, and Sentinel, but most famously as Photek — made him an easy pick for the style’s most artistic and intelligent producer. Working his way through street-level hardstep (on early productions for Certificate 18 and Street Beats) and airy, sub-aquatic “dolphin” tunes for L.T.J Bukem’s Good Looking label, Parkes finally arrived at a sound that pushed the bounds of drum’n’bass from the dancefloor into the realm of breakbeat head space.

His incredibly intricate rhythm programming — often requiring weeks of computer preparation — and the unmissable aura of paranoid menace on recordings such as “The Hidden Camera” and “UFO” exerted quite an influence on the return of dark-style drum’n’bass during the late ’90s.

An SOE favorite..Derrick Carter in the mix at Boiler Room.

Derrick ‘The Maestro’ Carter caught the house bug in the 80s, growing up during Chicago’s fertile warehouse explosion. After honing his skills in his bedroom, he soon got behind the decks at local spots like Shelter, Foxy’s, and Smart Bar. But it was his releases on label’s like Cajual, Classic and Organico that found him a wider audience, as Europe began to take interest in Chicago’s re-emerging wave of electronic producers and DJs. Several singles of chunky house tracks followed, shot through with Derrick Carter’s trademark jazzy atmospheres and meandering narratives.

Known for deftly throwing down a killer selection at the drop of a hat, Carter is a music lover through and through, whether forming his live group Sound Patrol Orchestra or crafting out there dub remixes of Chicago’s post-rock quintet Tortoise. Devoutly underground, Carter has dedicated himself to creating golden dancefloor vibes, as anyone who has been caught in the warm glow of one of his dark and soulful sets will testify.

See Derrick at Sankey’s NYC for the Stuck On Earth Reunion. February 22nd.
