Additional episode details

Subsonik fell in love with Drum & Bass in 1996 but has in fact been involved with music for much longer, having played the drums for over 20 years! He began DJing and in 1997 played his first event alongside Wally 'Pish Posh'.

It took seven more years for Mark to get bitten by the production bug, but once he had there was no looking back. Combining his love of both Trance and Drum & Bass, his musical output mixes the epic melodies and atmospherics of the former and the punchy breakbeats and weighty bass of the latter to devastating effect.

It's his love of rhythm and musicality that is setting his sound apart from the crowd and winning him the support of DJs up and down the D&B scene, from the aforementioned John B to Evol Intent and Cause 4 Concern.

His heavy-hitting melodic tunes have been picked up by Drum & Bass' biggest and brightest imprints: Beta Recordings, Gain, G2, Sudden Def, Nightbreed UK, Incite, Xposure UK, Cymbalism, Terrafunk, Urban Takeover. Subsonik's latest accomplishment is an exclusive production deal with Simon Bassline Smith's Technique Recordings. The list of those championing his releases reads as a who's who of D&B and the list continues to grow.
