Renegade Master: Cyantific


Our Renegade Riddims series, which has showcased some amazing artists to date both established artists and up and comers, has been so well accepted, that we decided to kick it up a notch and have a series dedicated to pioneers and soldiers of the scene. I give you…’Renegade Master’! We aim to bring you a new exciting mix each month so keep ’em peeled!

For our first mix, the formidable Cyantific managed to fit us into his very busy schedule and deliver us an hour of quality drum and bass!

Cyantific AKA Jon Stanley, has been at the forefront of drum and bass for knocking on close to 20 years after bursting onto the scene in 2002. Known for his devotion to his decks, unerring mastery in the mix and his ability to compose dance floor weapons are skills which have seen him DJ across the world.

Cyantific released his debut album, ‘Ghetto Blaster’ way back in 2006 on Hospital Records, he then went on to win the BBC 1Xtra Best Newcomer DJ award in 2007. Releases then quickly followed on other major labels like Critical and Ram.

In December 2014, Cyantific signed exclusively with Viper Recordings where he’s been a staple with releases and on lineups ever since and has made it onto BBC 1Xtra’s “A” playlist on more than one occassion.

If you stick with the genre then you see that there are very few periods which aren’t a golden age for D&B. In my position, I’ve seen all those ages, and they’re all golden. – Cyantific 2014

In the past couple of years he has become one of the most in-demand remixers with official remixes for other heavyweight artists like Ella Eyre, Mike Mago & Dragonette, Lethal Bizzle, Diztortion, Dr. Kucho & Gregor Salto, Tritonal, Matrix & Futurebound, and Drumsound & Bassline Smith.

Last year Cyantific released his LP ‘Bloodline’ which is the product of his musical journey so far and saw him collaborate with ShockOne, DC Breaks and a host of other names. If you haven’t checked it out already then we suggest you do it!

Check out his brand new mix and the first in our ‘Renegade Master’ series below! Enjoy!
