District has been something of a revelation in the last 18 months, a whirlwind period that has seen him develop into one of the most in demand producers within the deep Dubstep community. Having spent a couple of years carefully refining his production techniques, Dan got in touch with DJ Distance and along with his fellow Coventry producer and collaborator Sleeper, they quickly saw their thunderous sub-heavy rollers regularly included in Chestplate label head's live and radio sets.

Harnessing the relentless club-shaking low frequencies, twisted reece bassline architecture and explosive energy of his signature sound, District has seen his profile grow at a staggering rate with guest appearances on the world famous Rinse.FM, GetDarker and MistaJam’s 1xtra broadcast, and his tracks finding their way into every major DJ’s record bag from the irrepressible DJ Youngsta, to scene legends Skream and Benga on their Radio 1 show.

His debut 12” in 2011 featured two premium examples of District’s talent on the buttons, Haymaker and 3.5 grams, and was released by Distance on his mighty Chestplate Records imprint, to be followed up in early 2012 with the widely acclaimed bass savagery of the Terraformed EP with Sleeper. Both records are vital additions to a seminal back catalogue bristling with classics, and have fuelled excitement for future instalments of Dan’s dark creative vision.

Evolution and progression are the hallmarks of any leading producer, and something District takes seriously as he continues to contort his menacing nuerofunk influenced track aesthetics over varying styles and rhythmical structures. His bookings have increased exponentially, with a busy DJ schedule delivering sets packed with exclusives at events and festivals all over Europe, and it looks to be another dominant year for District and the Chestplate collective.
