01/04/12 #024 show Dont Look Back & Scenic & Advisory @ B93/NoFM Radio
Scenic & Advisory are a UK (Redditch) based Drum & Bass duo formed by Tommy Osgood (Scenic) & Lee Adkins (Advisory). While they have a penchant for the deep and atmospheric end of the D&B spectrum, blurring the lines between those and other genres is their focus.
Drawing inspiration from genres across the board from the pioneers of Electro, Hip-Hop, Glitch, IDM & Ambient from the 80s to the present they specialise in deep expansive soundscapes coupled with warm driving basslines, experimental breaks and intricate edits.
With releases on reputable labels such as Binary Soul, Allstreet Recordings and Urban Chemistry, Rotation Deep, Scenic & Advisory have risen from newcomers to a recognisable outfit amongst the scene. With support from Djís such as Bassdriveís Stunna, Overfiend, Method One, Magin, LM1, Fusion, SoulTec, Indigo Sync, Amnesty and artist/DJs such as Tidal, LJ High, Jaybee, Matik, Seathasky, Future Engineers, Smote, Bassflo to name but a few the duo are making headway within the scene.
David Pradera a.k.a. Arp-1. He was greatly influenced while growing up by the musical environment at home and by the constant influx of the musicians that surrounded his family. This familiar musical atmosphere allowed him to develop his love for music and an interest for collecting musical records.
Arp-1 influences range from Jazz, Soul, and Funk to 90ís rap and electronic music.
Since 2002 he has been playing at raves and clubs all over Madrid, while experiencing during this early stage many musical styles. Later, he hooked up with a long-time UK DnB producer, who ignited his interest in the soulful and atmospheric sounds of Drum & Bass.
Arp-1 is currently involved in several projects in Madrid, including the creation of the first Spanish deeper and atmospheric Drum & Bass label called Black Reflections Records alongside Miguel 'KP' & Daniel GR, and collaborating with artists such as Paul SG, Blade, Static, MJT, mSdoS, Dynamic...
In addition, a number of his productions are getting support from some of the heavyweights of the Drum & Bass scene such as LTJ Bukem, Fabio, PFM, Nookie, Stunna etc...

A true DJ at heart with many years of experience, Dutch DJ/producer Fre4knc (pronounce as "frequency") has recently been making waves behind the decks as well as in the studio. Stand out releases for Demand Records on vinyl and Subtle Audio have made his name synonymous with raw, deep and techy drum & bass for the dancefloor. Next to that he built his reputation at his own Break-Fast events in Groningen (NL), his radioshow on jungletrain.net, as the label boss of Break-Fast Audio and his residency for the mighty SOLK nights. Now in 2012 heís pushing his sound further with releases set for Dust Audio and Translation.
After winning several DJ contests and nominations for the Dutch Drum&Bass awards for "Best upcoming DJ" and "Best DJ", Fre4knc may be no newcomer to drum & bass. With a versatile and infectious style, his tracks have already won support across the scene from the likes of Fabio, DJ Hype, Kasra, Octane & DLR, Ant TC1, Doc Scott, June Miller, Hazard, Mantra and many more.
