PYRAMID are the duo Nicky D’Silva and Scott Maclean, long acquainted studio partners and good mates the pair are seasoned live performers. Their sound has evolved into a melting pot of beats and basslines set at around 140bpm. Be it breaks, dubstep or anything in between but originally grounded in breakbeat. Rising to fame from signing and releasing various tracks on the Funkatech label the duo have toured the world and have had production work commissioned for Polydor signing Roxxxan, Mercury’s Dot Rotten alongside TMS, Sony’s latest sensation Jagga, Tiesto’s Black Hole imprint and dubstep giants Dub Police.
This LIVE set was recorded back in 2011 at the Breakspoll awards held at Cable nightclub, with a set of 140bpm rinsing rhythms and basslines at the time, a sure crowd pleaser.
This LIVE set has never before been available for public download, enjoy my friends !
