No matter which style of drum & bass tickles your bassbins the most, S.P.Y is a name you would have more than likely come across in recent years, having notched up a hearty list of top releases on a variety of high profile labels from Metalheadz to CIA.
Relocating from Sao Paulo, to the less sunnier climes of London in 2003, it wasn't long before the DJ found his feet within the capital's drum and bass scene. Having taken time to explore and go on to master the art of production, he let his newly honed skills do the speaking, with his beats quickly attracting attention from the genre's tastemakers including Goldie and Marcus Intalex. Several years later and today, S.P.Y has obtained a level of recognition few can claim, a favourite amongst his peers; an artists' artist, having illustrated the extraordinary ability of being able to to churn out quality tune after tune. Of course a fact testament to this is that he is also no stranger to our venue, having become a choice selector for several of our resident drum and bass nights, Critical, Playaz and Soul:ution.
In time for this rare occasion when both of Brazil's finest drum and bass exports and long time collaborators, Marky and S.P.Y will be sharing the same London line-up when the two play together in Room One this Friday, S.P.Y's delivered this exclusive promo mix. Beginning with one of his most famous tracks to date, the chillingly beautiful and anthemic 'By Your Side', the one hour mix takes us on a musical journey typical of S.P.Y's DJ sets; his gnarly trademark sound flavoured with rumbling basslines and thumping drums. Take our advice; play this loud.
