Distance

Like many other well known DJs in the bass music genre, Distance (real name Greg Sanders) first found his way into the scene through the FWD nights at Plastic People in London. In 2007 he released his first album titled 'My Demons' and shortly after also launched his own record label - 'Chestplate'. Following the success of both his first album and the label, Distance released a second album titled 'Repercussions' and has released a number of Singles/EPs. He has developed a very distinguished sound within dubstep, often characterised by distorted guitar riffs with metallic percussion and his production consistency is second to none. Distance has has worked with pinch, under the name 'Deleted Scenes' and has more recently collaborated with Cyrus, Tunnidge and Icicle among others. He was also behind the 'Dubstep Allstars Vol. 8'.

I'd highly recommend listening to Distance's Rinse FM show on the second Thursday of each month. Recordings of his previous shows are also available on the RinseFM website under Podcasts & we have a few shows on the site here, check the mixes list below...
