It was only last year that we first introduced the Blackout affiliated production duo Neonlight on this blog. Back then of course, they were preparing to make their inaugural Farringdon visit as part of the Utecht label’s Room Two Takeover in July 2015 and since, the pair have become an intrinsic part of the camp homing their debut LP My Galactic Tale released back in May. The album not only gifts us with a multitude of unique and meticulous d&b cuts but it also perfectly outlines the boys’ adept ability to bring musicality, attitude and future forward creativity together.
Lucky for us then, they’ll be championing this exact sound on Friday when they once again will join the Blackout gang for their Room Two takeover and so, in aid of the upcoming proceedings hype and to toast the release of their album, we kindly asked if they’d record yet another exclusive promo mix.

As an original part of the Metalheadz crew (his name is inked on the spine of the label’s first ever release), Doc Scott’s been a constant influence and driving force behind 170bpm music whether working on Reinforced, HDZ, Bukem’s Goodlooking imprint or on his own 31 Records. Over time since he first appeared the Coventry born producer’s watched the scene he loves weather changes, or as his biography puts it “from it’s transitions from rave to hardcore, jungle-techno to tech step to d&b, from UK based to a global scene and industry, Doc Scott has seen it all and been there for the entire journey.” He’s quite famously described by his long time friend Goldie as “king of the rollers” and he’s the type of DJ that when he speaks, you simply put up and listen.

Like a lot of prominent drum & bass producers, Duncan Busto’s story begins in the late ‘80s when he was a little more besotted with hip hop. Whilst spending his time in record shops stocking up on import 12”s, he was convinced by a friend to make the move from music collector to disc jockey and a flourishing fleet of DJ bookings followed in the wake of that decision. After acid house had fully bloomed in London, chance encounters, serendipity and the influence of Commercial Suicide boss, Klute and the seminal techno outfit, Ubik, led to the Ipswich based Busto putting together the basics of a home studio in which he started making his own take on the sorts of electronic music he was playing out.

DJ Marky is a proper veteran; both in terms of music and our working relationship. And as such it always feels a bit daunting to really know where to start when introducing him. Sure, he’s had chart hits alongside underground smashes but that doesn’t really cut to the core of him.
