DFP certainly are a London music collective comprising Richard Belben (musician), Chris Jones (engineer), Paul Sims (disk jockey) and Mal (vocals). All members were within their early 30s if they first begun to make music jointly and had as a result experienced the passage of many musical designs, from punk to reggae and acidity house, plus they made a decision to compress these affects into a extremely rhythmic bundle that spanned acidity jazz, deep home, reggae and funk. Slowbone gathers a few of their previous releases, like the effective ‘The Lost Spirit Of Arch Stanton’. The group’s people had grown using the emergent membership lifestyle – from Feb 1992’s debut one ‘Obtain Yo Body’, through DJing stints at night clubs such as Distribution, High On Wish and Paul Oakenfold’s Misunderstandings, and remixes for vocalists such as for example Glen Goldsmith, Shay Jones and Marvelle. A documenting contract with Proceed! Discs subsidiary Proceed! Beat dropped through, although DFP continued to produce performers for Big Existence Information, including the Wayne Taylor Quartet. Later on they setup their very own Sureshot Information for EPs such as for example Space Switch and Feeling Great. With the launch of the debut recording the group also became in-house creation gurus for fresh label Wired Information, working with performers such as for example Shola (punk poetry), Shio (reggae) and Stephanie (guitarist).
