Mason exploded into the international arena in 2003 with his signing of ‘Ruff, Rugged and Raw ft. Armanni Reign’ to Dylan’s Freak Recordings. From there, the offers and tunes just kept coming. With releases on Hardware, Barcode, Intasound, East Side, Penetration and many more, Mason was now a household name in the Drum & Bass community.
