Freq Nasty
Freq Nasty FreQ Nasty started his breakbeat career at Botchit & Scarper in the late nineties with his Underglass single. The single was cained by the masses and was featured on several DJ compilations (including Tipper's Hi Octane). Around that same time, Darin teamed up with B.L.I.M. to start Archetype Studios where the two beat-lovers banged out the seminal Funky As... single for Marine Parade under their High Prime guise. Darin has always been an seen as an originator in breakbeat. His sound can be dark and ominous, drifting and playful, steeping and funky...just about anything. Listening to his full length album Freaks, Geeks & Mutilations , one can hear the mass of hiphop and ragga influences pouring through the album. In the past couple years, Darin continues to dominate the breaksworld by expanding his affiliations to include Smart Systems label (Electric Kingdom compilation) as well as the mighty Skint Records. His Skint releases include "That's My Style" / "Goose" and "Amped" / "Transforma". These two releases show Darin's more swinging, steppy style, which gained them much acclaim from the DJs worldwide.
