Prototype Recordings
  London, UK

ARTISTS: Drumsound & Bassline Smith  

Anyone familiar with the history of drum n’ bass will know that Prototype Recordings is held in the highest regard as one of the defining labels of the genre.

Launched by Grooverider in 1993, it was responsible for a string of ground-breaking releases. The label dropped banger after banger, whilst maintaining next level production values, and it was this combination of dance floor accessibility and studio brilliance that earned Prototype it’s legendary status.

With a back catalogue featuring works from some of the greatest producers in the game, from Photek to Dillinja, from Ed Rush & Optical to Bad Company, no story of the development of drum n’ bass is complete without a nod to the massive influence of the Prototype label.

And now, after an 13 year break, we’re back, and ready to do damage once again. Get ready.
