Bristol-based Owen Brown aka Clarity has rapidly become one of the leading names to watch in the progression of Drum and Bass music. Having stumbled upon drum n bass music at the age of 14, within two years Clarity managed to write music that was immediately supported by top names like dBridge, Doc Scott, Loxy, Jubei, Skeptical and Grooverider. Inevitable signings to respected labels followed swiftly with imprints such as Med School, Samurai Music, Cylon, Horizons, and dBridge's mighty Exit Records label stepping up to launch the Clarity name and sound proudly to the world. Stripping the core elements of Drum and Bass down to a refined, unique groove, his style has become unmistakable.

The Clarity sound is fortified with a structure that binds itself firmly to Techno and propels what you know as Drum and Bass into an entirely different realm with each sound carrying its ultimate weight as a result of this minimal, but focused delivery. Clarity returns after a release hiatus while he lay down the foundations of his debut LP 'Infinite' for Samurai Music. The 'Hell's Gate' EP is his first solo single for Samurai and his first full 12" release since his Exit Records 12". The title track is also Clarity's first work with an original vocal, and the result is suitably potent. The trademark kicks, off kilter percussion and menacing sonics are topped off with T Man's vocal challenge. 'Engineering' has Overlook back in the studio with Clarity taking the techno influence that permeates both their styles to an intense peak. A fitting entree to Clarity's debut LP 'Infinite', set for release in November 2014
