Survival (Dispatch Recordings/SCAR)
It's 2017 and Survival is releasing his 5th and highly anticipated LP (His 3rd on Dispatch Recordings).The album (Take It Back) showcases the funk and groove that Steve has carved out over the years and highlights exactly why he is always at the forefront of modern cutting edge music. This is further
testament to the fact that he is equally at home as a solo artist or working with others. The album features long established collabs with artists such as Break, Ant TC1, Codebreaker, Naomi Pryor & Eleanor Higgins.
A recent example of his ability to work closely with others is a current partnership with Script as SCAR that has seen many original releases across all Metalheadz labels such as the “Caged EP”, as well as remixes such as Refuge Kru’s “Dark Rider” which charted in the top 75 of the national charts. SCAR presented their debut Album “The Orkyd Project” in July 2016 on Goldie’s Metalheadz label to worldwide acclaim. This relationship continues with one of the founding labels of Drum & Bass into 2017 and beyond with several releases scheduled, and they are currently working on their second SCAR
artist album. Over the years their consistent output with another highly renown label in DnB, Dispatch Recordings, has seen many successful releases more pencilled in for this year and next. This stems form an ongoing relationship that Survival has built up over the past decade or more with Ant TC1 who owns the label. It has seen over a quarter of the Dispatch Recordings back catalogue coming directly from him as a solo artist, or with others as collaborative projects with the likes of well- established musicians such as Zero T, Break, DLR, Silent Witness and Script. One of those major partnerships was with Silent Witness and proved to be a huge success on the label. This also went on to bear the fruits of several 12” singles and also one of Drum & Bass’s biggest underground albums of 2013 “In From The Wild“, which also featured artists such as Klute, Cern & Submotion Orchestra lead singer Ruby Wood. In fact, Steve “Survival” Kielty has been involved in both producing and engineering music since the inception of Drum n Bass more than 2 decades ago, when he kicked off his musical career as a studio engineer at Basement
Studios in Watford. Around this time, he paired up with Roy McCabe under the guises of Akustic Research/Banaczech and released tunes on two very prolific labels of their time, Vinyl Addiction and Partisan Recordings between 1995 and 2003.
From there he took a short break from producing and worked as a Studio Manger for West Row studios until 2005 when he reemerged as a solo artist under the alias Survival. Releases on pioneering labels “Inperspective Records” and DJ Bailey’s “Intasound” sent out a clear message that Survival is an artist to be taken very seriously, a distinctive style and studio skills earned
from years working in pro studios, created a high demand for his music and also his DJing.
In 2008, when his involvement in the music was 15 years deep, Survival released his very first album on D Bridge’s “Exit Records”, which gained him widespread international critical acclaim and positioned Survival as one of
the leading lights in Drum & Bass.
With a plethora of well received releases since that first album on labels including Dispatch Recordings, Creative Source, Exit Records, DNAudio, Quarantine, Play Music and Shogun Audio, plus his own label called "Audio Tactics", Survival's deep, organic sound has rapidly earned him a reputation as one of the true craftsmen of modern Drum And Bass.
Dj Blazin (Outlook)
OUTLOOK FESTIVAL & WARNING resident BLAZIN’ is one of the few DJ’s in the Drum & Bass and Jungle scene getting booked to play on the main stage at the biggest events worldwide entirely for his skills on the decks. He got his first club booking at the age of 19 in the 1500 capacity Dance Academy and was one of the first DJs in the dnb scene to start mixing on 3 decks.
In 2004 he won a live DJ competition in London judged by top DJ agents, artists and producers from the scene: “An original 3 deck mix with a great selection of tearing tunes”. Following this he was invited to join the RANDOM CONCEPT ACADEMY which showcased the best new artists the drum & bass scene had to offer at some of the biggest venues across the UK. He was also given a main room residency at the multi-award winning WARNING, arguably the longest running drum & bass club event in the world; winner of Best Promoter at the NATIONAL DRUM & BASS AWARDS 2012, Best Club Night at the NATIONAL DRUM & BASS AWARDS 2013 and multiple nominations for DRUM & BASSS ARENA AWARDS over the years.
As one of the OUTLOOK DJ’s BLAZIN’ performs at annual launch parties in the most prestigious underground music venues across the globe. He has performed alongside THE JUNGLE DRUMMER multiple times in Europe, he’s DJ for legendary UK rapper SKINNYMAN & aside from OUTLOOK he’s performed at festivals including GLASTONBURY, READING, V, GLOBAL GATHERING, NASS, BOARDMASTERS & BOOM BAP.
The SubVersion SoundSystem was founded by Welfare in 2011. He had been involved with sound systems since 2007, including being a founding member of anarchist SoundSystem « Electronic Resistance » in Dublin. Taking inspiration from several independent sound operators around the country, he figured it was time to build up his own rig for the many events he was involved with at the time. Upon the purchase of several full-range boxes in 2011, the SubVersion SoundSystem was born. Soon afterwards he purchased half of what was formerly the 5lowershop Sound System from man like Binnie in Cork and the project moved to the next level with the addition of 2 custom built, Void designed X1s, Eliminator Mids and Dare Audio mid-tops. In 2013 Welfare teamed up with Galway audiophile Destitute who was building several « Hog Scoops » at the time. The mighty bassbin is a high output hybrid loading bass cabinet designed by the renowned Open Source designer Staipe Ercegovic… these things go LOOOOW! Soon afterwards there were 4 little piggies in the family and a super high-power Jah Tubby amplifier pushing the boxes to their low-end limits. In 2015, Destitute moved on to work on other projects and Welfare was joined by underground crew Crux and W Junglist. The 3 man crew have built the rig up significantly since, adding four 1850 horn loaded bassbins to bring the Bass section (alone) to almost 10,000 Watts of (RMS) power.. The building continues with W Junglist cloning 3 more Dare Audio mid-tops to add that super sharp high-end needed to complement the monstrous bass. The Sound System in it’s many forms has powered many fine gigs and events , over 50 as of June 2016, and there has been nothing but smiles of satisfaction as those sweet subsonic waves massage the area.
