Image: 1585628 Over the years, drum & bass has seen literally thousands of record labels come and go. But amid the seemingly infinite imprints that have provided an outlet for the music, very few can claim to have had anywhere near the influence of the mighty Virus Recordings.

Ed Rush & Optical, alongside fellow ‘tech step’ luminaries Matrix, Trace, RymeTyme and later Bad Company and Cause 4 Concern, layed down the Virus template on timeless tracks such as ‘Gasmask’, ‘Watermelon’ and ‘Medicine’, as well as LPs ‘Wormhole’ and ‘Sleepwalk’, and within just a couple of years had a seismic influence on the sound of Drum & Bass.

On his third LP for the mighty Virus Recordings, all, and we mean, all of the tracks are shut-down, stone-cold classics, and as soon as you hear cuts like Mudshark, A.R.P., and the unbelievable Botfly, you’ll know exactly what we
mean. Touches of neurofunk, hints of classic techstep and shades of hardstep are found throughout, but Audio is also not afraid to throw out the rulebook and take the music in directions he wants. A master of his craft, his word is the
law, and we are all just pawns in his game.

Audio's first experience with electronic music was in the Early 90's with the Colin Dale and Colin Favour radio shows on Kiss 100. He was instantly hooked, and when, a few years later, the classic "Wormhole" LP on Virus recordings was released, there was no turning back and he embraced the underground family that we know and love as, Drum and Bass

The true combination of music and technology can be found in Audio’s music, as one of the most experienced producers in the game today unleashes a masterpiece. As always, he has drawn from his wealth of influences, creating a full tableau of sound possibilities, unleashing an array of styles and moods. If you have been searching for that distillation of the essence of the late 90s, but skyrocketed into the future, look no further than the Force Of Nature LP
