'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from VOYAGER - January 6, 2021
On WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6th, STUNNA kicks off a brand new calendar year in 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio with a very special installment. During this week's broadcast, we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from legendary producer/DJ VOYAGER, in support of his brand new ETERNAL SOUL label which launches this month.
During the golden era of DRUM AND BASS music, VOYAGER (aka PETE PARSONS) was best known for his work as an artist, producer and engineer for one of the seminal UK DRUM AND BASS labels from that era: DEE JAY RECORDINGS/LUCKY SPIN RECORDINGS (although his client list included many other labels, producers and DJs during that time). Starting his career in 1990 at the MONROE PRODUCTION COMPANY in LONDON, he quickly became the 'go to' engineer/programmer for many of the studio's electronic music artists who were just beginning to create the kind of music that would go on to dominate the UK underground scene for the next decade and beyond. During this time, PETE's reputation grew due to his expertise in the studio domain, but also because his production sound design was clean, crisp, and additionally featured the deeper and more soulful sounds that would become his signature style during the golden mid-'90s era.
In the late 1990s, PETE signed a record deal with legendary TECHNO label R&S RECRODS. In 1997, he released a DRUM AND BASS LP for the imprint. Entitled 'FUTURE RETRO,' the superb, multi-flavored album included the classic anthem "HYPERSLEEP." Following the LP's release, PETE returned to his main musical instrument, the drums, forming one of the first live DRUM AND BASS bands to promote the album throughout the UK and the EU.
After two further releases on GOOD LOOKING RECORDS and CREATIVE SOURCE in the late '90s, PETE took a sabbatical from DRUM AND BASS in early 2000 to work in the UK NU SKOOL BREAKS scene under the moniker BREAKNECK (alongside partners DJ TAMSIN and DJ VLAD). The trio was signed to RENNIE PILGREM's TCR label in 2000, and then launched their own LONDON BREAKZ imprint, which ran from 2002 to 2007.
Fast forward to present day, and PETE has returned to producing DRUM AND BASS. After a few earlier releases on CAMINO BLUE RECORDINGS, TEMPO RECORDS, and OKBRON RECORDS, 2021 sees the long-overdue launch of VOYAGER's very own label: ETERNAL SOUL. With the new label's first release featuring a trio of solo VOYAGER tracks ("AURORA," "KOKORO," and "MERAKI"), be on the lookout for more original material on the imprint, as well as further releases and projects throughout the year on other labels from VOYAGER.
Please join us for this very special installment of 'THE GREENROOM' as VOYAGER unveils a new studio mix created especially for this program. Tune in!
