About Drift

Drift Drift's interest in hardcore began in the late 80s, after initially hearing the music through Amiga demos and music disks. As the likes of Altern8 and The Prodigy entered the charts in 1991, his interest grew. Through mixtapes borrowed from friends he soon discovered his local pirate station - Fresh FM, and began regularly tuning in to hear shows from the likes of SS and Mastersafe.

Drift bought his first 12" in 1993, but it wasn't until the late 90's that he bought his decks and went in search of those elusive hardcore tunes that he remembered from his teens. At this time he was also writing drum and bass and hardcore tracks, releasing them on the internet in his spare time. After a brief spell of playing hard house and trance between 1998 and 2000, he soon turned back to his hardcore roots and got into drum and bass, playing a regular slot on an emerging internet station.

In the summer of 2001 the breakbeat station Break Pirates was launched, where Drift still plays his regular drum and bass/hardcore/jungle show every Tuesday night. He has also played at events such as reENERGIZE, Collective, The Lock Up (outdoor) in Lincolnshire, and various other parties. Drift still produces tunes in the oldskool style, but using the technology of today, in an effort to bring some added freshness. In 2005 Drift had his tune 'Rinse It Out Proper' released on BBHC Recordings, which has had plays on FM stations such as Eruption and Force. This was followed in 2007 by the tune Heaven, released on Pitch Control Records. Watch out for future vinyl releases coming soon!
