Oris Jay Darqwan, one of the most revered beatmakers in the history of British bass music, will release his debut album 'To The Fly' on Monday 30th July.
Born and bred in the Steel City of Sheffield, UK, Oris Jay has been at the forefront of the UK's underground sound for the past 15-years+. As one of the original member's of the eponymous FWD>> nightclub that launched in 2001, Oris's journey first started at the birth of the hugely influential Sheffield 'bleep and bass' sound of the late 80's/early 90's. A sound that's been a prominent feature throughout his career as a DJ and producer, it was in these early years that he would find the creativity to push the boundaries of producing dark-side garage to eventually lay down the blueprint of what's now titled ‘Dubstep’.
Regarded as one of the forefathers of the scene, it's with great anticipation and huge excitement that after all these years of cutting personal dub plates and releasing 12's, Oris (aka Darqwan) will release his debut artist album.
