The Pariah studio had been assembled and music was being crafted in their individual, futuristic style which first caught the ears of Doc Scott and Blame. The first release came through Wolverhampton’s Urban Flavour Records and received heavy support from Fabio, Doc Scott and Dr S Gachet. In the few years that followed music was released on labels such as; Funk 21, Nu Directions, Inperspective Records and Covert Operations. During this time Blame had been guiding and mentoring Pariah to the point of releasing tracks with his 720 Degrees imprint which hadn’t gone unnoticed by LTJ Bukem a firm relationship with Good Looking Records followed up until 2004. In 2010, work meant a short break was needed. Now, in 2013 Pariah returns with new compositions that have that futuristic edge and a drive to push the boundaries of the Drum and Bass sound with Odyssey Recordings.
Tidal Aka Wayne, has always been into music since an early age. Some of his early musical memories come from many genre's including Reggae, Electro, Hip-Hop, Soul & Electronica.
Through listening to a lot of tunes, from various mix albums like Promised Land & Logical Progression, he decided to venture into drum 'n' bass production in 1998, and then later progressed into Djing back in 2000.
Since his first demo, Tidal has received interest over the years from labels like Covert Operations, Inperspective and International labels like Testflight (D.C), Warm Communications (Texas), Offshore Recordings (NYC) and Camino Blue (Germany).
In 2002 Tidal had his first signing to ASC's futuristic label Covert Operations (based in Bradford). His track entitled "Zero Divide" was eventually released as part of the Warm Communications / Covert Operations CD compilation, “Thought Process 1”.
Production wise Tidal has done numerous remixes / collaborations with respected artists like Simon V, Pete Rann, ASC, Resound, Galaxi (Deep Gemini), Void, Intersidereal; and he also hopes to work towards some more future projects with other artists.
With my own productions in an ironic way, I like to make tracks I want to hear myself in club, the same feeling I used to get from listening to those Bukem, Blame & PHD mixes for the first time, I try to aspire to capture people’s minds in the same way."
This style of atmospheric drum 'n' bass I'm deep rooted in, is the innovative 97-99 sounds of labels like Ascendant Grooves, Cadence, 720 and Good Looking Records.
It's not just about beats or making tunes for the dancefloor for me but more about, soul & feeling. I believe tracks should be open to an any interpretation and shouldn't be one-dimensional.”
In all Tidal has received DJ support from the following Artists / DJ’s
LTJ Bukem, Galaxi, Jay Le Roc, Nookie, PFM, Fabio, Aural Imbalance, Orange 'n' Blue, Modemellow, Future Engineers, ASC, Electrosoul System, Resound, Pete Rann, P.B.K, Qumulus, DJ M, Stunna, K.C Dee, Solarstation, Scenic + many others.

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.
