Episode 39 - May 2015 - Technique Podcast - Divine Elements

It’s a rare commodity these days to find both uniqueness and originality in an artist. Divine Elements delivers both, and the Los Angeles-based Drum & Bass production crew does it with serious fire. Not only do they make some intense dancefloor stompers, but they can hit you with a crushing three deck mix or an all out live performance. 
Having been a driving force in Los Angeles’ Drum & Bass since 2003, these guys are deep rooted in one of the U.S.’ top DnB scenes, headlining at some of the city’s best clubs, like Respect, Dim Mak Studios, Avalon, House of Blues, Keyclub and massive events like Beatdown, Legendz and History.  
Today the crew is still holding it down strong as one of the top West Coast producers of dancefloor Drum & Bass.

Hailed as “Ones to Watch” by Kmag in 2013, their deep respect for junglist history and culture has fuelled a steady rise to prominence both as DJs and producers. Now, they’re ready to take the next step, and make their mark on the international sceneas part of the Technique roster. So, after the warning shot of Razor Sharp on the 15 Years of Technique LP, it’s time to welcome the team now known as Kronology with their first full release.

While fully immersed in drum and bass music, they’ve brought their own influences of American EDM, house, punk and metal to work into the formula. Straight out of the San Fernando Valley, here’s something new for the D&B scene, encapsulated in their first release, the Timelapse EP.

Episode 32 - Oct 2014 - Technique Podcast - Mixed By MaxNRG

From grimy trap to main-stage D&B, from delicate melodies to stupidly big basslines, from Ukraine to the UK, MaxNRG's got it covered. Since signing to Technique he's demonstrated a level of versatility that's meant each new release comes with the promise of some new twist in the bass-music tale. Listen to the horror-movie darkness of “Danger Zone”, the electro-acid road joint “Dis Way We Gotta Do It” and the proudly Eastern European “Arkan”, and you wouldn't even know it was the same mind at work.

Episode 31 - Sept 2014 - Technique Podcast - Mixed By Spectrem

Episode 31 see's the return of the mighty Spectrem…… Since Technique first brought this Aussie producer to the world's attention, he's been unstoppable. His tracks have been dropped on Kiss, Radio 1, 1Xtra and wherever else good bass is purveyed to discerning listeners. He's been DJing alongside names like Matrix & Futurebound, Sigma and Drumsound & Bassline Smith. And as if that wasn't enough, he's back to increase the levels even further. With “Backfire”, Spectrem melds finely-manipulated real-instrument samples with heavyweight programmed sounds to create an ultra-modern action-flick blockbuster of a tune. Then we're on the “Run”. With a percussion line that'll have heads playing Spot the Break, and a vocal hook that's pure euphoria, this is no-compromise jungle music. You've already been warned that Spectrem is on the rise, and now this release is here to confirm it.

And now they've landed on Technique for some D&B business.

So this is Document One's warning shot. This is their statement of intent that they have some lethal D&B moves and they're not afraid to use them. Get to know their junglist side and brace yourselves because, for Document One on Technique Recordings, this is only the first assault.
