#digital #functionrecords#functionrecords.co.uk #@digital #steve jungle #phantom audio #metalheadz #renegade hardware #@functionrecs DIGITAL / MARCH 2016 Stephen Carr a.k.a. Digital is one of the UK’s well-respected & inspirational drum and bass producers with a career spanning 20yrs plus and a seminal catalogue of original & innovative releases to date. His signature bass-lines & radicalized dubbed out sounds reach back to his childhood seeing his Father run his own sound-system for nearly thirty years in Ipswich, UK. The moniker ‘Digital’ was given to Steve by the Ashanti Sound system, immediately recognizing his technical ability operating a sound system at the age of 14 while also relating the moniker to the future, his youth and the emergence of the digital age. It wasn’t long before Digital used his dad's sound-system on his own, in 1991, with the ‘rave scene’ growing in & around Ipswich he started to hire-out the system to various promoters, noticeably Danny C who he befriended through their love of music and raving. This is when he really got interested in the rave scene and its music triggering his curiosity that drew his attention to production… April 2016 sees the release of Digital - ‘Synthesis’ a collaboration on Function Records featuring top artists like Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Spirit, Om Unit, Nomine, Kiat, Resound, Need for Mirrors, Total Science, Klute and to keep things totally fresh new producers with their own unique styles like Villem, Response, Flava & Dissect, Theory and Mad Vibes. In the process of making Synthesis, he personally traveled around to collaborate with each producer as opposed to sending files through the internet. Digital explains, ‘I’d prefer to get a vibe going in the studio because the vibe and end results are more pleasing, and more real when you’re in the studio together. As a result of working on this album, I feel that we’ve formed a collective of sorts that is larger than this project. I also feel that togetherness can be a ‘thing’ within music.’ Digital’s 20 yrs of production consist of 3 more LP’s & countless 12” & EP’s on his own label imprint; Function records & co-owned imprint Phantom Audio, as well as some of the finest Drum n Bass labels to date; Metalheadz, Exit, Timeless, 31 Records, C.I.A, Photek Productions, Innerground, Commercial Suicide, Reinforced Records, Violence, Horizons, Rupture, Ingredients, Dispatch, V Recordings, Lion Dub International, Chronic & Hardleaders, the list goes on! A colLaboration with Danny C saw Digital's first ever release. 'Split Personality' / 'Navigator's Path' was released on the legendary Ipswich based label Certificate 18. His solo debut release ‘Touch Me’ on Timeless in 1995 was followed up by  a track that really set the marker for Digital was ‘Spacefunk’ a limited edition 12” on Timeless Recordings 1995. Such a unique track in its time and so well received it got re-released with remixes from Goldie, Photek, Future Bound & Doc Scott. Spacefunk was a signature track at the amazing Metalheadz Blue Note nights for several years so Digital caught the attention of Goldie which resulted in Metalheadz 021 - Digital - Niagra / Down Under. The relationship with Metalheadz remained strong over the years resulting in Digital featuring on every Platinum Breakz album, 'The Wolf EP'  with long time partner Spirit and an EP later this year. 1998 saw the birth of the infamous Phantom Audio imprint co-owned with producer & friend Spirit It arose from their mutual desire to have their own base where there was no set musical agenda. Soon after the duo debuted with the release of ‘Phantom Force’ this track became a d’n’b anthem worldwide. Still to this day, 17yrs after its release you can still hear ‘Phantom Force’ rocking in sets from the likes of; Andy C, Friction, Goldie & DJ Marky also Phantom Force lives on through featuring on numerous dance music CD compilations. The imprint Phantom Audio went on to home some formative releases from the duo alongside a selection of solo cuts. March 2013 sees the duo teaming up once again for the first time in 10yrs to re-launch the label. Looking back through Digital’s discography he has had so many cuts that still stand the test of time from the mighty ‘Deadline’ on 31 records to the monster ‘Waterhouse Dub’ on Function and ‘Gateman’ on Phantom Audio. 2002 saw the release of his debut LP ‘Dubzilla’ on Function, 10 tracks of pure D’n’B; 9 tracks in his own true imitable dub-fashion and one track with Phantom Audio label partner Spirit. Whilst he continued to release music in mid April 2002 Digital teamed with his long-time friend and business partner Brillo in setting up the Timeless Music Group handling all forms of label management for 12 independent D&B labels. Digital also worked closely with 2 of New Zealand’s treasured electronic acts Salmonella Dub & Concord Dawn, working with both acts to develop their European market further with tour management, tour support, European distribution & marketing.
