Specimen A are brothers Phil and Mo Jones alongside DJ Dan Smart. Producers of heavy fuelled breaks, drum & bass and everything in between they were raised on a broad diet of inspiring music from classical to rave.
After making drum & bass for a few years, they turned to the fresh ever evolving nu-skool breaks scene in 2006, collaborating with then up & coming producers Far Too Loud their early releases ‘Headcase’, ‘Contamination’ & ‘Soldiers At War’ won them mass praise & support across the scene. After signing with Funkatech Records they continued to craft their distinctive sound on follow up singles ‘Exodus’, ‘Dirty Disco’ and ‘Freak In Us feat. Miss Trouble’ winning a devoted fanbase, international bookings and proving themselves skillful performers and versatile song writers.
In mid 2008 they released their ‘Hazardous Material’ series on Funkatech pushing their sound into new territories and winning themselves a nomination for Breakthrough Producer at the 2009 Breakspoll Awards at Fabric where they finally took to the stage with their first ever live show performing in front of a full house of frenzied ravers. They have gone from strength to strength since; tearing up the first Breakspoll Festival in Spain, remixing Dylan Rhymes and Deekline for high profile labels Lot49 and Against The Grain as well as guest mixes on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM.
