With Roller Summer Bass 2018 just around the corner, Roller had a chat with Defyre about his love of drum and bass and also gave us a little insight into his roller promo mix that has just dropped.
Roller: Hi mate. Love that promo mix you put together. You’ve gone across the full spectrum of dnb and even thrown in some older stuff too which we love!
Defyre: I’ve always loved a wide variety of drum n bass, there’s a bit of brilliance in all sub genres and a time and place for it all. I chose these tracks with my Roller experiences in mind and wanted to record a fun journey that makes all stops and leaves you wanting a revisit.
R: Do you use vinyl or digital? Tell us a bit about your set up at the moment
D: BOTH! For mixing I’ve got 2 x Technic 1200s, 2 x Pioneer CDJ 2000 Nexus II and a Rane 57 2 channel scratch mixer. I need a 4 Channel DJM 900 Nexus 2 ASAP! I love my records and digital collection, I just can’t live without either.
R: Who are some of your favourite producers and why?
D: Too hard to name them all, but Break is the overall king. Prolix is the heavy rolling smash out dirty filth party king, Enei is a versatile warrior but low end banger/roller king. Calibre is the all-time deep liquid king and DLR is consistently dropping heated rollers non-stop and deserves big ups. Dnb is so strong I could name 50 artists without taking a breath that should be in that list. But check out all my audio and video mixes to see what I mean.
Big ups Roller cant wait for the show!
Thanks for taking the time to have a chat with us and we’ll see you at Roller Summer Bass!
