Thomas Green – aka ROCKWELL – has without question been one of the most exhilarating talents to come out of the drum and bass scene in recent times. His distinctive sound has seen him release on the likes of Digital Soundboy, Renegade Hardware, Critical and Darkestral, before signing exclusively to Friction’s Shogun Audio imprint.

Tracks such as ‘Underpass’, ‘Reverse Engineering’ and ‘4U’ have hi
ghlighted ROCKWELL as one of the most original and talented producers in bass music today. His productions are painstakingly constructed, beautifully arranged and thoughtfully mastered. Each track offers unique textures seldom heard in electronic music- let alone drum and bass- and his unmistakable signature sound is one of the few that works just as well in the living room as in the club.

2012 has seen ROCKWELL start the build-up to his debut album, due 2013. Tune of the year so far ‘Childhood Memories’ has hinted a future away from the constraints of 170bpm and has received support from across the bass music spectrum including Annie Mac, Mistajam, Chase & Status and Zane Lowe, who selected it as his ‘Next Hype’ track on BBC Radio 1. Scroll back to earlier in 2012 and Rockwell dropped bone fide dancefloor destroyers ‘Tripwire’ and ‘Constantcomplexrhythmicsound’ to great critical acclaim and DJ support, and recent remixes for Jubei and Netsky have demonstrated his credentials outside of the constraints of d&b once again.

As a DJ, ROCKWELL is starting to build a reputation for his eclectic sets, exemplified by his MoS and Rinse shows, and by his increasing tendency to drop the likes of Rustie, Baauer and Blawan in his sets. Behind the decks as in the studio, you’re always kept guessing as to what he’s going to pull out of the bag next. And after a year which saw him stun crowds at festivals such as Roskilde and Global Gathering, as well as making his Ibiza debut at Amnesia’s bass weekly Together, he has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting DJs in dance music.
