ABOUT SURVIVAL
(Audio Tactics, Creative Source, Exit Records, DNAudio, Quarantine, Play Music, Shogun Audio / UK)

Having been a familiar name in many of Drum n Bass’s top flight DJs tracklistings recently, you could be forgiven for thinking that Survival is a new artist. This is most certainly not the case.

In fact Steve Kielty has been involved in both producing and engineering since the inception of Drum n Bass back in 1993/94 when he kicked off his musical career as a studio engineer at Basement Studios in Watford. Around this time he paired up with Roy McCabe under the guises of Akustic Research/Banaczech and released tunes on two very prolific labels of their time, Vinyl Addiction and Partisan Recordings between 1995 and 2003.

From there he took a short break from producing and worked as a Studio Manger for West Row studios until 2005 when he re-emerged as a solo artist under the alias Survival.

Releases on pioneering labels Inperspective Records and DJ Baileys Intasound sent out a clear message that Survival is an artist to be taken very seriously, a distinctive style and studio skills earned from years working in pro studios, he has, in the last few years created a high demand for his music and also his DJing.

With a recent plethora of well received releases on labels including Creative Source, Exit Records, DNAudio, Quarantine, Play Music and Shogun Audio, Survival’s deep, organic sound has rapidly earned him a reputation as one of the true craftsmen of modern drum & bass.

Collaborations with Break, Silent Witness, D-Bridge, Fierce, Sabre and Zero Tolerance clearly illustrate the respect he commands from his peers, and with his newly launched Audio Tactics label providing a focused outlet for his productions, his fan base is expanding as rapidly as his discography.
