During this time he worked as an engineer for the legendary Eskimo Noise which provided the install for Metalheadz’s renowned Blue Note Sessions, & a little later started releasing with signings on Ray Keith’s Penny Black imprint under the collab name Special Branch. Early 2000 also saw signings to fundamental label Reinforced alongside Breakage, and under a separate alias Espionage. 15 years on, Threshold is a firm fixture in the Rupture crew & still true to the roots jungle sound; releasing music on Rupture LDN, Foundation X, and his own imprint Dub Clinique. https://soundcloud.com/dubclinique http://www.dubclinique.com/ . . ◊ THEORY - (Manchester debut) (Rupture LDN / Function / Fresh 86 / Alphacut / 45Seven) Theory’s fascination with sound grew into an obsession from an early age. At the turn of the 90's & the intro of UK breakbeat hardcore, he was producing his first tracks with an 8-bit sampler & Atari STE. Continuing to write music & transitioning from hardcore to jungle, he started sending demos in ‘05 with signings quickly following on 13 Music, Digital’s Function Records & tracks featuring on ATM / Knowledge Magazine cover CD's. To date he’s amassed a steady flow of heavyweight releases on Function, Lion Dubs, Translation, Dub Clinique, Syncopathic, Omni Music, 45 Seven, Soothsayer, to name a few, as well as Rupture LDN - where he maintains as a key DJ & can be found playing his distinctive jungle regularly at the night & at shows around UK and Europe whilst working on the launch of his own label and website '444 Music'. https://soundcloud.com/marktheory http://444music.com/ . . ◊ THE UNTOUCHABLES [Belgium] - (Manchester debut) (Samurai Music / Cylon / Renegade Hardware / Alphacut / Translation) Hailing from Brussels, The Untouchables have been dropping their killer dark, rolling, dub/techno-influenced drum & bass since 2008.
