Renegade Riddims: Defraction
While Defraction may be a relatively new name to some, he is a very familiar face within the Drum & Bass network. For those not in the know, he is an up and coming producer hailing from Bristol who is well equipped when it comes to keeping a dance floor rocking and locked down.
Jack Roebuck aka Defraction has been DJing for over 5 years and he is known for blending deep, rolling sounds. He has supported some of the biggest names in the scene such as the likes of Randall, Dillinja, Bryan Gee, Philth Roni Size and DJ Krust to name a few! Defraction started producing around 3 years ago and has seen releases on Lost The Plot, Lost Recordings and Lifestyle Music amongst others. He is definitely someone to keep an eye on over the coming years.
Defraction had a powerful year of production last year and his most recent single ‘Approach‘, which dropped on Lifestyle Music back in March, definitely set the standard for more great work to come from this producer. Watch this space!
We’ve been avid supporters of Defraction over the past few months and have really noticed him upping his skills not only at production but mixing and track selection too. He took over our Facebook page a few weeks ago and did a live stream which was brilliant to see and hear. After that, our friends at InnerSoul asked him to be a part of their live-streamed fundraiser for the charity Refuge.
The next logical step for Defraction with us is to join the Renegade Riddims series. So here he is with a mix which features a range of styles with a few classics and some absolute fire dubs thrown in for good measure!
