Special guests Blocks & Escher, meanwhile, have grown from being acclaimed newcomers and solo artists to establishing themselves as one of drum’n’bass’ most exciting and sought after production outfits. Their debut releases in 2009 found their way into the record bags of scene luminaries such as Fabio, Marcus Intalex, DJ Hype, Spectrasoul, and Alix Perez –
as well as gaining attention outside of the genre for their emotive and progressive take on drum’n’bass with support from artists as varied as Rob Da Bank, Jazzanova, Mary Ann Hobbs and even Laurent Garnier. 2011 saw their music grace some of the biggest and most prestigious labels in bass music with releases dropping on Renegade Hardware, Horizons Music and arguably one of the most highly awaited singles of the year “Shadowplay” Digital Soundboy.
