Steve Ward (Rascal) and Greg Lomas (Klone) met in 1994 at Kenilworth’s legendary ‘Euro Dizzy’ rave partys. Klone was the live P.A. and Rascal the resident DJ. Rascal has been DJing since the age of eleven, growing up on diet of early electro and hip hop. Klone started producing at the early age of ten, growing up with a musical family - his father a session drummer for Decca recordings in the 60s & 70s and his Uncle producer for Bad Manners and many of the early 80s Coventry Ska bands. From then on the two combined their skills - appearing as a DJ duo and working together in the studio. This led to their first release as Rascal and Klone on their own label, the now defunct ‘Project F80 Recordings’ pressed in small quantities and distributed from the boots of their mates' cars. Although lasting for only three releases, Project F80 enabled them to gather enough funds together to revamp their studio and spend some serious time on their sound. Relying purely on feedback from Dubplates and DATs given to DJs, Rascal and Klone felt that their sound was starting to make an impact. In 1999 their track ‘Twister’ was licensed to Moving Shadow for their ’Killa Bites’ compilation. In 2000 they made their full debut for the label with the highly acclaimed “Phoenix EP” (MSX004) scoring top marks in reviews and with many of the DJs. This followed with their single on Audio Couture ‘Get Wild’/’Winner Takes All’ (AC042) which went on to be liscensed to the game ‘Grand Theft Auto 3’ and the Moving Shadow compilation ’01.1’. Rascal and Klone were then asked to compile and mix CDs such as ‘Atmospheric Drum and Bass Vol.6’ and an Audio Couture compilation for Knowledge magazine cover CD and asked to remix tracks for downtempo label ‘Kingsize Records’. In 2001 they went on to secure deals with ‘Allied’ (a division of Dune), ‘Killerhertz’ (a division of Ram), ‘Emotif’, and more importantly ‘Urban Takeover’ - watch this space……. With releases on Urban Takeover, Shakedown, Allied, Emotif and Moving Shadow, these guys are not to be missed. Their tracks are currently receiving support from DJs such as Andy C and Ed Rush & Optical and you'd be well advised to keep a close eye on them as DJs and producers.
