Bill Vega & New Decade have been involved with Dance music for the last 20 years and have produced under many different guises in an array of genres. It all started when their Essex based label ‘Out Of Romford’ was set up at the height of the rave scene back in 1991 and was responsible for massive rave anthems such as ‘Get The Message’, ‘Wonderful Experiences’ and early tracks from Andy C & Ant Miles as Desired State.
Their productions continued into the evolving D&B scene with further releases on O.O.R. and in 1995 their track ‘Rise Up’, under the guise Vivid Dreams, was signed to dance major Deconstruction. The release entered the U.K national charts and was supported with remixes from Origin Unknown which then lead to further releases under ‘Joint Venture’ on Liftin Spirit Records.
The turn of the millennium brought with it a new direction in music, this time bringing back their roots in Hardcore and entering the world of Nuskool Breaks. Their first track ‘Mind Beats’ was signed to ED209’s Wireframe label in 2002. They soon found themselves being an established act in the breaks scene playing regular events/festivals in the UK and Spain and also radio shows on Breaks FM. Further releases on Wireframe and Future Funk Squad’s en:vision label followed with continuous support from DJ’s such as Atomic Hooligan, Jay Cunning, Tayo, Cntrl Z, Hybrid, Aquasky, Hyper and Annie Nightingale to name but a few.
In 2003 they set up their own label ‘Full Intent’ and owing to the success of the releases were asked to appear on the Annie Nightingale show on BBC Radio 1. The label ran up until their signing to Bassrock Records in 2004 where they continued a busy release schedule.
Since then the list of Breaks labels they have worked with for both originals and remixes goes on, some of which include: Warehouse Wax, Downbeat, Scrape, Badbwoy Bass, Definition:breaks, Chipsound, Elektroshok, re:connect, Raveart & Distorsion.
2011 will see new Drum & Bass signings with the first of these releases ‘Closer’ / ‘Be There’ hitting the shops in the summer on German label Basswerk. Other signings to STFU, Definition:breaks & Physmatics will pave the way for the onslaught of Drum & Bass to come…
