Prepare yourselves for a high performance, sonic assault from one of the most outstanding drum & bass outfits to have emerged from Austria in recent years, Fourward.
Influenced heavily by the likes of Bad Company, Noisia and Ed Rush & Optical, the collective formed back in 2007 bringing together a myriad of styles into one slick package to take the scene by storm with huge releases on a host of prestigious labels including Virus, Vision and DSCI4. With the success of their hit remix of the Upbeat’s ‘Alone’ on Noisia’s Vision Recordings and 2013’s 'Aftermath' EP on Audioporn Records perking up the ears of a certain Friction on BBC Radio 1, it wasn’t long after that the call was made and the year culminated in their signing exclusively with Shogun Audio.
Hitting off this new chapter the jaw dropping ‘Black Tooth Grin’ single on Shogun’s sister imprint SGNLTD drop-kicked them to the next level whilst their next outing ‘On A Knife Edge’ found its way onto the Way Of The Warrior 2 label compilation. Since then Fourward marked their cards kicking down even more doors throughout 2014 with the likes of ‘Countdown’ and their massive 2015 call to arms ‘Foot Soldiers’.
Finally in 2016 Fourward delivered their debut album, ‘Expansion’, to riotous applause. A tour de force covering the full spectrum of drum & bass, the LP saw them gaining praise from the likes of DJ Mag, Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio, UKF, SB:TV, Annie Nightingale and of course Friction on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, as well as the whole of the drum & bass fraternity.
Now with even more new music in the pipeline for 2017 and beyond and an ever increasing DJ schedule, Fourward truly are rolling from strength to strength.
