Mike ‘PFM’ Bolton
Mike started buying vinyl back in 1982, although at that time he did not have his own decks. He did however, spin tunes at the odd party for friends, while being influenced by the big DJ’s such as Froggy. Then in 1989, after listening to Carl Cox, it inspired Mike to acquire his first set of decks and began teaching himself to mix.
Then in 1995 Mike launched his own Drum ‘n’ Bass production career, after being inspired by LTJ Bukem’s revolutionary ‘Demons Theme’. Mike formed PFM (Progressive Future Music) on Good Looking Records. He quickly gained recognition with the release of the first record ‘Wash Over Me/ Love and Happiness’, as well as the now classics ‘One and Only’, ‘The Western’ and ‘Danny’s Song’.
After a string of hits with Good Looking, PFM went on to release a number of tracks on Moving Shadow including the well-known ‘Cruising Detroit’ and ‘The Eleventh Hour’
After a brief spell with a major record label, PFM, now solely Mike Bolton, re-signed with Good Looking and released ‘Sakora/ Summerboy’ followed by the ‘Val Sinestra EP’, which is dedicated to a friend that passed away.
Since then Mike Bolton has gone on to produce some fine albums including the ‘ Producer’, which was a collection of remixed older tracks, as well as more new material. Mike has really made a huge impact on the scene through a lot of hard work that has been recognised throughout.
You can now catch Mike Bolton live at an Event named ‘AXO’ organised by the Odyssey Recordings and Advectionmusic camp. This will be held at ‘The Queens Head’ Redditch 30th April 2016 where Mike ‘PFM’ Bolton will be showcasing an exclusive 2 hour classic Golden age set.

Since his first release in 1994, music producer and DJ Big Bud has been writing and producing his own music. He has released over 70 tracks including 3 albums, Infinity + Infinity in 1999 and followed up with a double album in 2001, Late Night Blues. 2004 witnessed the release of a 'producer album on GLO. From his first release up to his latest he has consistently produced soulful and emotional dance music to critical acclaim.
Having released tracks on various labels including Creative Source, Nuphonic, Moving Shadow, Vibez and Good Looking Records he now runs two labels together with partner DJ.Element. They are Soundtrax Records and Super8Sound.
The Big Bud sound has been influenced by over 25 years of listening to Jazz, funk, Soul and Reggae. From attending jazz funk all-dayers back in the eighties thru the big raves of the early nineties up to todays drum and bass clubs he has always been a lover of quality, soulful music. It was after hearing the emergence of tracks with breakbeats that he decided to get involved in producing.
After finishing his first tunes he took them up to Speed and gave them to Fabio. The result was a 3 year stint with Creative Source, releasing a handful of singles. The next stop was Good Looking Records where he spent 5 years producing a steady stream of drum and bass and downtempo cuts. After parting company with them he had to endure a two year period of isolation due to contractual problems. These two years were spent in the studio, stockpiling tracks ready for release when the time was right.
During that time he met DJ Element and was invited to join him in running Soundtrax. To date they have released 4 singles with many more lined up, ready to go. Although not a regular on the scene in the UK he has travelled the world playing his brand of d'n'b. In the recent years he has visited Hungary, Serbia, Russia, New Zealand, Belize, Mexico, Holland and Germany.

Aural Imbalance AKA Simon Huxtable has been writing and creating atmospheric music since 1997, creating deep emotive tracks across many electronic music genres including drum & bass and spacey house / progressive.

I compose music primarily for my own pleasure; the creative process of constructing and refining a piece of music is what I enjoy the most. I endeavour to move the listener in some way.
Hailing from North London, I now live in North Devon. I have been contributing my productions to the jrum and bass genre since 2007.
Taking piano lessons at the age of six, I have always been passionate about playing music. A love of hip hop naturally led onto buying hardcore and jungle records in the early 90's and attending seminal clubs such as Speed and Metalheadz as often as I could.
Now I am getting DJ support from the very people who influenced me such as LTJ Bukem and PFM.
Starting out on Binary Soul Records I have had releases on many labels over the last few years, most notably with Good Looking Records, Fokuz, Liquid V, Soul Deep Recordings, Phuzion, Odyssey and Smooth N Groove.
