"Talk to anybody who knows their shit about dubstep, the first name they mention when discussing the preservation of the ethos is Distance. The Chestplate Records founder has been keeping it deep and dark for almost a decade, while the world around him has melted under the neon glare of the mainstream.” - Thump Magazine
Hailing from South London, Distance is one of the true originators of the dubstep sound. Gathering early support from the legendary John Peel and going on to be a major part of the scene-defining Dubstep Warz radio special back in 2006, Distance has forged a name for himself as a critical figurehead in the scene going on to mix the eighth instalment of Tempa’s Dubstep Allstars series in 2011.
Distance's production output is also formidable, finding homes on a variety of top-notch labels including Hotflush, Tectonic and Boka - with his debut long player coming out on the world reputed Planet Mu in 2007. His own label, Chestplate Records, has now cemented itself as one of the main go to sources for the latest mutations of the genre, it’s sonic direction fusing metal influences with dubstep templates.
Once a regular fixture at seminal raves such as FWD>> and DMZ, Distance’s bookings now take him around the world where he devastates dance floors and sound systems in his own inimitable style. If you’re a fan of metal, industrial, dub, reggae and techno-influenced bass music then this is the night for you.
