On WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14th, STUNNA unveils another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE. In this week's installment, talented producer/DJ COLOSSUS makes his debut appearance on the show with an exclusive guest mix during the broadcast.
From a very early age, a passion for music and creativity began to shine through for UK-based artist COLOSSUS (aka TOBY TINWELL). With his musical interests leaning towards the electronic world, he began focusing his practice towards DRUM+BASS music. Shortly after leaving college, he had his first release with E-MOTION RECORDS. With the help of SENSA (one half of HYBRID MINDS), the release's title track, "UNDER THE WEATHER," was promoted by D+B giants LIQUICITY. This was the boost that COLOSSUS needed as he began to release music with labels such as SOUL DEEP EXCLUSIVES, DNBB RECORDINGS, and CELSIUS RECORDINGS.
He launched his own digital record label, RUSH RECORDS, with some local musicians, and ran the imprint for four years. During this time, he also became a resident DJ at JUNGLE JAM and OVERFLOW, where he supported artists such as BAD COMPANY UK, MICKY FINN, ANDY C, RONI SIZE, FABIO, GROOVERIDER, TECHNIMATIC, SERIAL KILLAZ, BLU MAR TEN, LENZMAN, COMMIX, HYBRID MINDS, and many more. In 2014, COLOSSUS performed at his first international shows in ANTWERP, BELGIUM, playing at the GUN AUDIO and BASS CIRCUS events alongside artists CYANTIFIC, BCEE, and LSB. The year 2015 saw D+B staple imprint HOSPITAL RECORDS release music from COLOSSUS on their “HOSPITALITY 2015” compilation and, a year later, he was also featured on the label's “WE ARE 21” various artist album.
During a brief hiatus away from producing DRUM+BASS, COLOSSUS spent time honing his craft and studying towards new horizons and possibilities in his musical career. He concentrated his studies on a masters degree in the art of integrating music with the moving image. The time away helped him to redefine and enhance his knowledge as a producer, and now, in 2020, COLOSSUS is back and hungrier than ever. With releases featured on LIQUICITY RECORDS' sister label GALACY RECORDS, autism charity label LIQUID DRUM+BASS 4 AUTISM, as well as returing back to BAY 6 RECORDINGS and SOUL DEEP RECORDINGS, COLOSSUS is set to drop his debut "THIRD FACE" album on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16th via his own BANDCAMP page. A document highlighting COLOSSUS' prowess in the studio domain, the "THIRD FACE" LP is a well-balanced aural journey showcasing this talented producer's strengths throughout the album's many moods and textures.
Join us this session as COLOSSUS unveils a special guest mix created exclusively for this show. Tune in!
