DRUM AND BASS 4 REAL FEAT SUV
As a crucial member of the respected Full Cycle and Reprazent stables, Suv has undoubtedly contributed his fair share to the development of Drum n Bass and definitely to the sound of Bristol. A member of the seminal 1989 group Fresh Four who burst onto the scene with ‚Wishing On A Star‘, Suv has continued to carve a musical journey both as a solo producer and part of larger conglomerates with Roni Size, Krust and Die always with the intent to break new ground. Having listened to everything from Bob Marley to David Bowie growing up in the UK,
Suv brings a truly urbane, open-minded sense to his musical productions.
Never afraid to look into the past and routes seldom explored, Suv’s Desert Rose EP kicked up a storm with its release. Borrowing influences from Latin, Brazilian, Hindu and Moroccan grooves, the EP was caned by everyone from the likes of Grooverider and Fabio to eclectic leftfield DJs like Gilles Peterson and John Peel, proving that good Drum n Bass can appeal to both the serious headz as well as anyone who appreciates good music. Mixing up these Asian and Flamenco-inspired themes with his trademark Bristol dubby sounds has definitely given Suv a new dimension – one that saw him follow up the EP with Follow The Sun. Like its precursor, the EP delves into uncharted territory in terms of fresh rhythms.
