Pola & Bryson
Pola & Bryson are two of the most exciting next-generation producers currently making moves in drum & bass. Creating some of the biggest waves in the shortest time, they’ve shot into the scene with their own carefully sculpted brand of melodic, electronic music.
Having met back in 2012, mutually bonding over their shared love of drum & bass purveyors such as Roni Size, Commix, High Contrast, Logistics, and Dom & Roland, Jack and Harry began producing music together when they both moved to London to study. Both classically trained from a young age on trumpet, piano and drums, the musical roots of Pola & Bryson run deep, a foundation for all their work that would follow.
Putting out their first D&B releases in 2015 and setting up their Soulvent Records label that same year, the P&B sound managed to push far and wide with a series of power moves through their own label events and networking, quickly garnering support from the underground with the likes of London Elektricity, Technimatic, as well as the Shogun Audio’s head honcho Friction.
With their releases picking up pace and DJ dates across the country, 2016 saw them firmly make their mark with their debut album ‘This Time Last Year’, released to much critical acclaim from both the press and their peers.
2017 marked the next major step as the duo announced their exclusive signing to Shogun Audio. Having already found favour with the likes of Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1 with their first label release, ‘Find Our Way EP’ the duo went on to remix Moby’s iconic ‘Porcelain’ - a daunting task which was perfectly executed, bringing a new lease of life to a classic.
Following on from what was a huge year for Jack and Harry, 2018 saw the release of ‘Lost In Thought’ their second album which was nominated for best album at the 2018 D&B Arena Awards. With stand out tracks such as ‘Night Dawns’ and ‘24/7’ receiving extensive support on Radio 1, Apple Beats 1 and from the pioneers of D&B, this body of work cemented their place as 2 of the most exciting producers in their field.
With sophistication beyond their young years, this duo are showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to take their music and performances to a new level.
