The Essential Mix 8/5 (16/5): Sub Focus

Taking the Essential Mix well and truly deep into the jungle is one of the brightest talents in drum and bass right now. Sub focus AKA Nick Douwma played bass in a band at school and went on to teach himself the art of sampling and producing. It wasn’t until 2005 that he hit the top of the UK dance chart with ‘X-Ray’.

He’s currently working on a forthcoming album set to drop on Ram Records later this year, this mix catches the producer at the top of his game.
