It all started with Ram Records back in 2005 signing several tracks to Frequency Recordings (The label founded by one of the leading Producer DJ’s in the Drum & Bass scene Andy C). This steady stream of releases helped cement the act's profile as both supreme DJs and future leaders of the scene. 2009 saw the release of 'Pickett Line', one of their biggest tracks to date, which received swathes of Radio One support across all the specialists with Radio One’s Pete Tong citing it as ’My favorite Drum & Bass tunes of the year’ - ‘Flashback’ picked up the gauntlet and settled into the Radio One ‘Hottest Records’ Podcast for the entire Summer of 2009 firmly putting DC Breaks on the radar. Fast forward to 2010 and the year kicked off in fine style, with their ‘Halo EP’ released on Viper Recordings and championed by every specialist show at Radio One matched with a selection interviews and revered guest mix features behind the hollowed decks of BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s. Annie Mac tagged them ‘ones to watch for 2010’ and MistaJam called them ‘the Hottest Production team out there right now’
Unleashing their anthemic basslines on dancefloors from London to LA, the duo have also brought big hype to the scene from their brilliant reworks of Tinie Tempah, Rox, Example, I Blame Coco and even JLS which found its way into the weekly track list of Zane Lowe’s Radio One show where he declared ‘There is no way on earth I would be playing a JLS record if it wasn’t for DC Breaks’. These are just a few of the remixes for major labels like Universal, Sony, Island, Parlophone, EMI and Ministry of Sound.
2010 culminated with DC Breaks signing an exclusive deal with Ram, and their first single, ‘The More I Want’ is scheduled for release in April. The combination of DC Breaks’ unique gutsy, melodic sound with a label that has already shown enough skills to launch Chase & Status, Subfocus and the soon-to-be-huge Loadstar, the future looks very bright.
DC Breaks are far from studio hermits and have spent years crafting their unique live performance in clubs and festivals around the world, DJ-ing across 6 decks and two mixers, and as a result they are rapidly becoming one of the most exciting acts in Drum & Bass and ready to break boundaries.
