Musically rich, emotionally charged drum & bass has become the trademark sound of Pete Rogers and Andy Powell aka Technimatic, now firmly established as major players in the d&b scene.
Having started making music together back in 2008 as Technicolour & Komatic, Pete and Andy released their first single ‘Preacher’ on Technique’s sister imprint Worldwide Audio in 2009. The duo went on to showcase their liquid-infused blend of hyper-coloured D&B on labels Critical, Hospital, Spearhead, Viper, and even the seminal Good Looking Records, with Technicolour’s own official remix of LTJ Bukem’s ‘Music’.
Shogun Audio were eager to recognise the potential of Technimatic and signed them exclusively in 2012 to their sister imprint SGN:LTD. They immediately signalled their intent, dropping one of the most successful releases in the label’s history, the formidable ‘Intersection’ EP.
2014 saw Technimatic release the drum & bass album of the summer, ‘Desire Paths’. Their beautifully constructed debut LP received acclaim from Radio 1 and Resident Advisor, with Mixmag and Thump both ranking it in their top electronic albums of the year. ‘Better Perspective’, their eagerly-awaited sophomore album, was released in summer 2016 to similar acclaim, gaining two DNBA Awards nominations and building their growing fanbase yet further.
Some of Pete and Andy’s favourite producers were invited to remix a collection of their rich back catalogue in 2017, resulting in the brilliant ‘Technimatic Remixed’ LP, and over the past 18 months they have themselves provided a swathe of reworks for the likes of Aprés, The Ephemerals, Liquicity, Spearhead, Fokuz and Blu Mar Ten Music, as well as embarking on major DJ tours of Europe, Australia, North America and Russia.
