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, and now Shogun Audio.
Tracks such as ‘Underpass’, ‘Reverse Engineering’ and ‘4U’ 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.
During 2012 Rockwell fired 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’ pushed the boundaries even further. 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 Radio1.
Then in 2013 a legend was born, that legend bore the name ‘Detroit’ and became the most iconic Rockwell track yet, blowing up Zane Lowe’s sub live on air on Radio 1, rendering Mistajam speechless and caving in every club around the globe in the sets of Friction, Andy C and all the rest. The year also saw Tom take on his very own radio show as part of BBC Radio 1’s Residency and In New DJ’s We Trust schedule showing him to be natural behind the mic and prepare him for many a fill-in for Friction’s D&B show.
Teased by tracks like ‘I Need U’ and ‘1234’ in 2014 rumours of the incoming album were rife. Now in 2015 Rocky’s debut album ‘Obsolete Medium’ is here, an electronic adrenaline shot that mixes straight up hard-hitting D&B with sonic experiments that will leave jaws well and truly dropped.
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 Ibiza to Boiler Room TV such is his diversity. Whether he’s playing a Radio 1 show or a heaving club, his increasing tendency to switch the BPM’s during his hi-octane drum & bass has truly set him apart. Behind the decks as in the studio, Rockwell always keeps you on your toes.
