The Prototypes are undoubtedly one of the most exciting acts in drum and bass right now. Their passion for production and performing solidifies them as key contributors to the excitement and evolution of the scene.
Chris Garvey and Nick White teamed up a while back in Brighton and started to formulate their own hard-hitting, dance floor gems. Soon after, in 2010, they made their debut on Viper Recordings with the most intriguing track titled 'Evolution'. From that point forward, they were full steam ahead into making a name for themselves. Their next big single, 'Cascade', was gained huge commercial success. It was well received on the radio and supported by BBC Radio 1 vets; Zane Lowe, Annie Mac & Fabio & Grooverider. Later in 2010, they released one of the their biggest tracks to date, 'Breathless' which was featured on Pendulum's essential mix.
With all of the accolades and support flowing in for the talented duo, it wasn't a surprise when DJ Friction wanted to foster their talent and bring them into the Shogun Audio family in 2011. They released their debut EP, 'Born To Rise' which showcasing their versatility. From the confident, uptempo 'Born To Rise' to the progressive, enchanting, chords on 'Your Future', it was another standout release from the duo. Their follow-up EP titled, 'Suffocate' was also a major success and reinforced their continuous rise to fame.
By 2014, they made a career move and decided to sign with Viper Recordings. The transition was seamless and they wasted no time in starting to conceptualizing their first studio LP. 'Pale Blue Dot' and 'Don't Let Me Go' released as singles, have been heard and used in variety of sets creating an infectious buzz and amping up the anticipation of their debut album, 'City of Gold'.
