Additional episode details

Making music began as a hobby for the trio of Estonian producers known as Mutated Forms. Original members Alexander (Zub) and Artiom (G-ruff) started experimenting with different genres of electronic music using any and all software they could find. They were then later joined by a third member Alex H, an experienced DJ who joined the crew in 2004. Their big break came in 2006 when Formation Records DJ SS signed one of their tracks 'My Feeling' to his World Of Drum and Bass imprint.

Impressed by the quality and diversity of the music emerging from the Mutated studio a certain Twisted Individual signed several tracks to labels within his Grid Recordings stable, and in the early stages of 2009, after working on single projects for a couple of years Mutated Forms signed exclusively to the Grid Recordings group.

Since then there has been one big change within the group, with one third of the outfit, G-Ruff, relocating to Birmingham, UK. Thanks to the amazing advances in technology over the past decade being several hundred miles apart doesn't seem to have affected this trio's creativity. The quality and diversity of music emerging from Mutated Forms studios in the UK and Estonia have made them one of the hottest talents in the Drum and Bass world. Receiving regular support from a wide cross section of tastemakers from Metalheadz Goldie to BBC legend Fabio, this trio is becoming renound for producing some of the freshest and most innovative music around. Never restricted or pigeon holed to a particular sub-genre, their sound has constantly mutated and evolved.

It should come as no surprise then that the likes heavyweight DJ's such as, Marky, Goldie, Grooverider, Bailey, London Elektricity, Hype and SS, are currently supporting their tracks on the circuit, alongside spins from many of the most forward thinking producers in the game.

Tipped as one's to watch in 2011 by the legendary Fabio on BBC Radio 1 and with a number of remixes, new productions and an album in the pipeline, keep your eyes peeled for their next move!
