Welsh wizard High Contrast took a slightly unorthodox route into music; growing up he was an avid film-lover, rarely listened to any contemporary music at all, instead listening almost exclusively to movie soundtracks. By the age of about 16 he'd developed an interest in drum & bass and had started buying records and fiddling about with a Cubase demo. Before long he had a residency at Cardiff club night 'Silent Running', and was snapped up by Hospital Records after meeting London Elektricity at one of the nights. The first tune they signed was 'Suddenly' for a Plastic Surgery compilation, after which his catalogue quickly developed as he knocked out classics left right and centre. Early highlights included 'Music is Everything', 'Global Love' and of course, 'Return of Forever', all of which featured on his debut album 'True Colours' in 2002. By the release of his second album, 'High Society' in 2004, his glittering back catalogue had him marked out as one of the most talented and respected producers in the scene with countless more classics to his name such as 'Twilight's Last Gleaming', 'The Basement Track' and 'Racing Green', not to mention remixing the likes of White Stripes and The Streets. High Contrast is also a massively talented DJ, and can often be found spinning at Fabio's Swerve, he's also been spotted playing at Ram Records and even did a disco set at DJ Marky & Friends once!
