DOM & ROLAND (METALHEADZ / UK)
Dom grew up in West London and started going to clubs in the early 90’s, when he met Nico Sykes a music engineer who introduced him to the idea of producing his own music.
Soon after Dom bought a “Roland” Sampler and his name was set. It was not long before Nico set up record labels to release the steady flow of music he produced and the “Techstep” sound was born.
This sound went on to dominate the airwaves of the early nineties with big name Radio DJ’s like Fabio and Grooverider providing almost blanket coverage of their music.
Shortly afterwards in 1996 Dom signed to the legendary ‘Moving Shadow Recordings’ and signed a three album deal with them.
As one of the labels most prolific artists his reputation was further cemented when he was chosen to collaborate on their 100th release, along with Rob Playford, and Goldie.
Dom’s production went from strength to strength and he was soon mixing and co – producing tracks for others who didn’t have their own gear.
Mutant Revisited and Sonar with Trace and Skylab and Subway with Ed Rush are now considered classics of the genre.
It was for this first collaboration with Trace, that Dom created the famous ‘Tramen’ break – a break that has been sampled and used across genres by other artists ever since!
