DJ Suv

The fourth member of Roni Size's Reprazent collective has enjoyed a quiet rise in stature over the years. His work within different time signatures, particularly evident within the Free Beat EP for Full Cycle, brought an abstract feel to his sound that was not deliberately awkward, but more a reaction against a perceived militancy in drum'n'bass production. Often melancholic, his music has avoided the usual smashers favored by contemporaries Die and Krust in favor of more epic slices of vinyl where huge swathes of atmospherics are depth-charged by melodic strikes and bass lines that expand to fill whatever space the percussion allows them. While Desert Rose, his debut album as DJ Suv, received critical plaudits with a plethora of overseas influences scattered amongst the expected Bristolian bass rumbles, the occasional musical utterances of his work with vocalist Virginia as Reeltime have become one of the most anticipated side projects since Breakbeat Era. ~ Kingsley Marshall
