CYCOM

Cycom was first inspired by drum'n'bass when he witnessed Grooverider play the legendary Metalheadz Sunday Session@Blue Note in London.
After spending countless hours developing his production skills and deciphering the rhythmic mayhem of breakbeat music, he released his first tracks to a large audience on mp3.com.
From then on, things quickly evolved. He got in touch with Simon V from Santorin Records, the label which released his first 12" only 3 months later (a remix of Simon V's "Broken Promise"). The press reaction was immediate and overwhelmingly positive.
Cycom has released on various international labels and is renown for his distinctive sound and trademarkbeats.
