Dominic Angas is a true hero of drum and bass.

A master of the sampler – that’s where the ‘Roland’ part comes from – he pioneered the Techstep sound, bringing an industrial, metallic edge to his productions that stemmed in no small part from his former life as an architecture student.

Working closely with the venerated Moving Shadow imprint, as well as labels like 31 Recs, Prototype and Renegade Hardware, he’s also one of the genre’s more successful album artists, as attested by the likes of ‘Back To The Future’, ‘Chronology’ and ‘No Strings Attached’.

Famously, he co-created the Tramen Break with DJ Trace, toughening up the hats, kicks and snares of the Amen break for a contemporary DnB rhythm that’s been used extensively by the scene’s big hitters ever since.
