BULLETPROOF / DJ POTS (Cyanide Recordings / AK)
Bulletproof is back with a vengeance! After a small hiatus from the studio Bulletproof is back in the lab and producing some of his strongest material to date.
Bulletproof (Aka Jay Cyanide / DJ Pots) is undoubtedly one of the finest D&B talents to emerge from the Southern Hemisphere. Over the past 7 years the name "Bulletproof” has stood for nothing less than the very finest in explosive, futuristic dance floor Drum and Bass, and during this time, Bulletproof released works on some of the scenes leading labels and its own Cyanide Recordings. As Cyanide Recordings dons its 20th release, its time to get ready for yet another onslaught of complete Bulletproof dance floor madness. With a DJ style likened to that of any of the scenes leading Djs, armed to the teeth with a selection of the very freshest cuts of neurofunk the scene has to offer, Bulletproof is guaranteed to deliver, each and every time. With close to 13 years experience behind the wheels of steel, Jay holds the reputation for being one of Australasia's fiercest D'n’B selectors.
With an onslaught of new remixes and collaborations lining the crates of the scenes finest, Bulletproof is getting ready for another round of international dates locked in for 2007...
