Drum & Bass Producer/DJ Duo based in Bristol
DESPICABLE YOUTH, formed of two 19 year olds from Somerset, came together through sharing a passion for mixing, which then naturally evolved into a love for production. With no musical backgrounds on either side they threw themselves in the deep end and within a space of 6 months were asked to produce a four track EP for the already established and respected Drum and Bass label ‘Lockdown Recordings’.
Such pioneers of the genre as Break, Enei, Octane & DLR, Bladerunner and the mighty Calyx & Teebee heavily influence the duo’s style. Their versatile sound is synonymous to producers signed to labels such as Critical, Ram Records, Virus and Symmetry Recordings. They are equally at home making Liquid rollers as they are Techy-Driven dance floor bangers.
Since exploding onto the scene in December 2012 DESPICABLE YOUTH have been making big movements in and around the Bristol music scene recently landing a residency at the city's premier up-and-coming Drum & Bass night 'Liquifyah' and gaining support from a long list of coveted artists including June Miller, Doc Scott, John B, Mob Tactics, Grooverider, Chris SU, Anile, Amoss, Loko, A Side, Basher, MC Carasel, Fred V & Grafix and Loko. Just this year alone the duo have played at such high-calibre events as 'Mutiny' at Motion, Bristol alongside some of the biggest names the scene has to offer including Hazard, Calyx & Teebee, Icicle, Culture Shock, Brockie, Randall, Dimension, LTJ Bukem and loads more, adding to an already impressive list. This year has also seen them step out onto the festival circuit for the first time, where they have been very well received, smashing dancefloors at Glastonbury and Nozstock Festival to name just a couple.
DESPICABLE YOUTH’s debut EP ‘Lesson 1’ dropped on Lockdown Recordings in April 2014 and they’ve been quick to follow up with a string of other releases including offical remixes for artists such as Cybin, Locksem and Mabel Rogers. They’ve also had a number of tracks featured on online promotion giant Drumnbass.net, the most notable being an orginal track titled ‘Tepid’ which racked up over 10,000 plays in the first 24 hours of it being uploaded. With their bags packed to the brim with talent and potential, these two are launching an all-out assault on Drum & Bass that's sure to turn a few heads.
