Presenting Bristol based CMDZ (pronounced Command – Z) which for Mac users may be a familiar and for some, frequently used quick key (undo function). CMDZ leans towards the darker side of drum & bass in both his production and DJ’ing and has taken influence from Black Sun Empire, Fre4knc, Audio, Spor and Noisia to name a few.

The beginning of 2014 saw the formation of the ‘Beat Pilot Collective’ with BunOne & Boase and after playing only a few sets with them, this soon led to a residency at Bristol night [re:code]. Alongside regular performances at Bristol Sounds, CMDZ is currently working on finalising his neurofunk EP, set for release early 2015.

In May 2014, CMDZ released an experimental EP (Laerrus EP) on Zion Records under a different alias: ‘Laerrus’. “I find that producing different styles and genres pushes my technical abilities, as well as allowing me to use different techniques I may not have been able to use if sticking to the same BPM. This 3 track EP ranges from 105 BPM – 115 BPM and is quite difficult to place in a genre”.

CMDZ also runs an online radio show every Wednesday night 9pm-11pm, playing the latest and greatest in drum & bass and neurofunk from around the globe and often features guest DJ’s (www.reassembleradio.co.uk)
