Biography

Misleadingly plural, Dom & Roland is in fact the one-man attack of Dominic Angus, whose slim yet steady blast of EPs released through noted drum’n’bass imprints Moving Darkness, Suburban Base, and Doc Scott’s 31 Records have represented the harder, darker, even more experimental edge of dancefloor-oriented hardstep. Authorized by Shifting Darkness to a nonexclusive agreement in early 1996, Dom’s preliminary singles deviated sharply from your brighter, even more melodic thrust of a lot of the label’s back again catalog. But Angus’ dedication to pressing the hardstep envelope while still pressing bassbins in addition has meant his songs have become high perform among critics in addition to DJs, resulting in a two-album dedication from your label. A citizen of London’s Shepherd’s Bush, Dom’s early link with the drum’n’bass picture was through friend and early coach Ed Hurry; Dom’s release into production arrived via Hurry collaborator no U-Turn creator Nick Sykes (aka Nico), to whom Dom payed a nominal charge for studio period and an instant co-write. Following that, Dom took classes in studio room engineering and creation while building ends meet like a cafe manager. His first genuine songs were released beneath the name Current Affairs (a cooperation with Brian Ferrier), and his 1st solitary under his personal name was the grueling “Dynamics”/”The Planets,” released in the first weeks of 1996. By the finish of that 12 months, Angus experienced racked up four singles and a small number of compilation songs and remixes (especially for Flytronix as well as the Artwork of Noise’s drum’n’bass remix recording). The majority of his songs — especially “Planets” and both edges from the “Technicians” 12″ — had been rinsed so seriously because of the sudden increase in darkside hardstep (capped by an uncredited co-write with Ed Hurry, Track, and Nico using one from the year’s biggest music, “Mad Different Strategies”), his account rose dramatically, resulting in remix work with Graham Sutton’s Boymerang task along with a monitor on Shifting Shadow’s 100th 12″ discharge close to Goldie and Rob Playford. The Sector album made an appearance in 1998, and continued to be looked at an extremely important album from the genre since it is at the past due ’90s. Optical co-produced two of the paths. His second full-length, Back again for future years, slipped in 2002. Still around the Shifting Darkness imprint, his third recording will be his last commitment towards the label. Entitled Chronology, it had been well received and presented collaborations with Kemal of Konflict, Skynet, and American maker Hive. After establishing his personal label, Dom & Roland Productions, his following album got in 2008. With the Searching Glass contains one disk of new materials and another of DRP produces from recent years. His 2009 recording, No Strings Attached, was also released by himself label, and presented a lot more collaborations than his earlier efforts, including people that have Noisia, Amon Tobin, and Shifting Darkness manager Rob Playford. Another recording on DRP seems in 2011, No Strings Attached, before Dom & Roland agreed upon to the Metalheadz imprint, the label going up by among the genre’s best-known statistics, Goldie.
