The Prototypes are one of the most exciting production outfits in recent years.
They came to prominence with the euphoric dancefloor track ‘Suffocate’ on Shogun Audio, receiving support from Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Andy C, Roni Size, Friction, J Majik & Wickaman, Pendulum, and DJ Fresh. 2013 saw the duo sign an album deal with Futurebound’s Viper Recordings. The first single from the album ‘Pale Blue Dot’ held the No 1 spot on the Beatport dnb chart for over a month, with DJ support from Netsky, Chase & Status, Pendulum, Sub Focus, Sigma, TC and more.
2014 saw go from strength to strength with ‘Just Bounce’ featured on Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 6’ album and the duo being signed to Primary Talent Agency, as well as a summer residency on BBC Xtra Talent. Proving to be one of the hottest acts in the UK Drum & Bass club scene, they achieved 3 out of the top 10 selling D&B tracks of 2014 with tracks with Abyss VIP, Pale Blue Dot and Humanoid.
2015 sees the release of their debut album, 'City of Gold'. The album features amazing vocals from the likes of Mad Hed City (Pop It Off), Ayak (Under), Ayah Marar (Kill The Silence), Laconic (Is It Love) and Amy Pearson (Don't Let It Go). But on the closing track 'Slip Away', Chris Garvey performs a moving vocal as a dedication to his mother.
The Prototypes are currently traveling the world on a ‘City Of Gold’ album tour which encompasses over 50 dates and will see them play NASS, Urban Art Forms and Tomorrowland festivals, along with a 13-city tour of North America. It’s not hard to see why the future has never been brighter for one of the most exciting production outfits in recent years.
