Thomas Green – aka ROCKWELL - has without question been one of the most exhilarating talents to come out of the drum and bass scene in recent times, heralded by the music press as one of the most distinct artists working today. His incredible talent has seen him release on the likes of Digital Soundboy, Renegade Hardware, Critical and Darkestral, before signing exclusively to Friction’s Shogun Audio imprint.
Tracks such as ‘Underpass’, ‘Reverse Engineering’ and ‘4U’ have highlighted ROCKWELL as one of the most original and talented producers in bass music, constantly dazzling with painstaking construction, beautiful arrangements and seemingly effortless ingenuity. His music offers unique textures seldom heard in electronic music, let alone drum and bass, and his unmistakable signature sound and ability enables Rockwell to demolish a dance floor with one hand while soothing your soul with the other.
2012 saw him fire out some inspired work; bona fide dance floor gems such as ‘Tripwire’ and the outstanding ‘Constantcomplexrhythmicsound’ sat alongside huge remixes for the likes of Netsky and Jubei whilst his final release of the year ‘Childhood Memories’ has been pushing the boundaries even further as we look ahead to his debut album due for 2013. Hinting at what’s to come, delving way outside the constraints of 170bpm, Rockwell picked up support from across the bass music spectrum including Annie Mac, Mistajam, Chase & Status and Zane Lowe who selected it as his 'Next Hype' track on BBC Radio1. Now all ears await to hear what’s sure to be one of the most exhilarating and accomplished albums of 2013.
Not only an awe-inspiring producer but a formidable DJ in his own right, Rockwell sets have been lighting up clubs all over the world from Amnesia in Ibiza to Boiler Room TV such is his diversity. Whether he’s playing his Ministry Of Sound radio show or a Rinse FM show, his increasing tendency to drop a Rustie or a Baauer track amongst his hi-octane drum & bass has truly set him apart. Behind the decks as in the studio, you’re always kept guessing as to what he’s going to pull out of the bag next.
