Having exploded onto the scene over the past few years, there’s been no looking back for the production duo, with their polished, dancefloor-destroying drum and bass. Having made their debut on Futurebound’s Viper Recordings in 2010 with the track, ‘Evolution’, from the inaugural ‘Summer Slammers’ album, it wasn’t long before The Prototypes caught the attention of some of the scenes leading taste-makers. Following their debut, The Prototypes quickly released their first single ‘Cascade’ on Infrared Records. A huge hit on both radio and across the scene, ‘Cascade’ received Radio 1 support from the likes of: Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Annie Nightingale, and Fabio & Grooverider. It was also featured on UKF’s first ever compilation album, ‘UKF Drum & Bass 2010’. With early support from the likes of Andy C, Roni Size, Matrix & Futurebound, DJ Friction, J Majik & Wickaman, Pendulum, and DJ Fresh, The Prototypes quickly became one of the most hotly-tipped production duos in the scene. After being featured in Pendulum’s 2010 Essential Mix, The Prototypes unleashed the vocal anthem ‘Breathless’ on Formation Records, to huge acclaim worldwide. Having now cemented their place in the scene, The Prototypes signed with DJ Friction’s Shogun Audio in 2011. Wasting no time making their presence known, the duo released their debut EP, ‘Born To Rise’, followed by the monster single ‘Pandora’ / ‘Abyss’. The end of 2012 saw The Prototypes release arguably their biggest track to date, with the big euphoric dancefloor vibes of ‘Suffocate’, from the EP of the same name. Never resting on their laurels, they returned less than a month later with another huge hit, ‘Blackout’, which featured the vocals of MC ID reminding us “it’s time to tear the roof off”. The Brighton boys next teamed up with vocalist Takura (of Chase & Status fame) in typical cinematic fashion to produce the haunting sounds of ‘Rage Within’; one of the finest examples of The Prototypes ability to produce vocal anthems that also cause bassline warfare on the dancefloor. Also one of the busiest production teams on the remix front, The Prototypes credits read as a who’s who of some of the biggest names in dance and electronic music. With remixes for the likes of: Avicii, Ed Sheeran, Bingo Players, Hadouken, Modestep, AlunaGeorge, Fleur, Don Diablo, Ian Carey feat. Snoop Dogg, DJ Vadim, The Qemists, Friction, and Koven – it’s not hard to see why The Prototypes have become in such high demand. Entering into the next chapter of their careers, The Prototypes have now signed with Viper Recordings and are setting their sights on their debut album, to be released in 2014. With their latest offering ‘Just Bounce’ featured on Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 6’ album, and their first album single due on Viper in the new year, the future has never been brighter for one of the most exciting production outfits in recent years. CRISSY CRISS One of Drum and Bass’ most important ambassadors, Crissy Criss has become an established forceboth in the studio and the DJ booth. A versatile leader for the genre as a whole, Crissy is now a household name in broadcasting, DJing and production.The DJHailing from Leytonstone, Crissy Criss was constantly exposed to pioneers of the primordial Drum and Bass scene, and given the best start possible for a certified D&B selector. Given his first pair of decks at five by his step father Kenny Ken, Crissy’s mum was also the founder of the DJ Agency Ton Management. Home to the likes of Kenny Ken, Nicky Blackmarket, DJ Rap, Ratpack, EZ Rollers, Peshayand Stevie Hyper D, the musical environment was a huge influence for a young DJ - and proved instrumental in his later career. After hanging round with Drum and Bass’ brightest lights, it was no surprise that Crissy soon became interested in following the Drum and Bass heroes he admired. Crissy’s first gigs were played to an empty room, sneaking into Kenny Ken’s studio when he wasn’t home - but it was at the tender age of barely nine that his career began its meteoric ascent. After months of dedicated practise and lots of broken turntable needles, Crissy's first gig as a DJ came without warning - at an empty Festival at The Essex Show ground. A last minute replacement for Kenny Ken, Crissy ended up playing alongside the likes of Andy C and GQ - names he would regularly be associated with in the future. Four years later aged 13, Crissy had his first ever DJ booking. Handpicked by the mighty DJ Zinc, Crissy warmed up the legendary ‘End’ club for a line up that included Mampi Swift, Bad Company and Andy C. In 2001, Crissy also began playing abroad - solidifying his position as an international top DnB DJ. Since then, Crissy Criss has continued to be a force behind the decks, smashing crowds worldwide - every weekend.

Breaking new artists on the biggest stage, Crissy Criss helped the likes of Netsky, Camo & Krooked, Wilkinson, Flux Pavillion, Doctor P, FuntCase, Metrik, Mind Vortex, Fred V & Grafix, SPY, Dimension and many more become iconic names for those in the know. As well as servicing the underground, the 1Xtra show also attracted many mainstream accolades - including a Sony Radio Award nomination for his 'Story of the Amen Break’ documentary. Injecting new energy into Drum and Bass, Crissy Criss showed D&B in a new light, with popular features such as ‘I’m An MC Get Me Out Of Here’ and ‘Evolution of Drum&Bass’ appealing to bass veterans and newcomers alike. The epitome of Crissy's work for the genre, Radio 1Xtra’s recent ‘D&B Soundclash' drew in more listeners than ever, pitting established labels against each other in a celebration of bass music's rich diversity. Keeping the BBC’s flagship urban station on the pulse of underground music, Crissy led 1Xtra to 4 Best Radio Station awards at the prestigious Drum&Bass Awards in 2008, 2009, 2013, 2014.
