MAD CLASSY + SUB.CONSCIOUS
BAD COMPANY UK
BC Recordings, Virus, Prototype, Bad Taste Recordings
Founded in the summer of 1998, Bad Company UK began on the philosophy of re-energizing what was becoming an increasingly minimalist musical genre and convey through their music the same spirit and intensity which first drew them to the sound. Thus one of Drum & Bass' biggest anthems The Nine was born on their own label, BC Recordings.
Propelled by the success of The Nine, the four members soon found their collective gaining momentum with releases on prominent labels including Prototype, Virus, DSCI4, Ram, React and Formation. Within two years Bad Company UK had cemented their name in the foundations of Drum & Bass with the release of their first of several long players, titled Inside The Machine. This album received world-wide acclaim, not only based on the strength and individuality of the music but also the unique concepts behind it.
From this point, the group and the concept began to snowball into heights of musical notoriety never before reached by a Drum & Bass artist, featuring in such notable periodicals as The Face, NME, DJ Magazine, Musik, Dazed and Confused and Mixmag. During this time the foursome insisted on bypassing the path leading to mainstream success, instead opting to fuel the underground.
Fast forward 4 world tours, 3 albums, many weeks at the top of the UK dance album charts, countless singles, remixes and uncountable late night studio sessions spent creating d&b classics such as The Pulse, Planet Dust, Spacehopper, Dogs on The Moon, Mo' Fire, Seizure, Torpedo and Hornet... you know the rest.
