Royalston

Sydney-based, classically trained, DJ / producer Dylan Martin (middle name “Royalston”) has been listening to Drum + Bass since ’93, producing for 12 years and DJ-ing for about 10. A man of many talents, Royalston is also an illustrator / designer and first got into music production when he was making a soundtrack to a 3D animation. His music is characterized by a raw, analogue sound with a techy edge, (thanks to plenty of hardware like his favourite Korg MS-20), and he has released on labels such as Bad Taste and Black Acre before signing exclusively to Med School in 2012.

‘People On The Ground’ was Royalston’s next offering in 2015, working with the likes of Hannah Joy and LyfLyk. There are the sudden, schizophrenic switch-ups of “Give Me the World” and “I Saw the Face of a Person” that highlight Royalston’s unpredictable style. His game of guesswork keeps things exciting and exhilarating throughout with influences of techno, house and trance all enticingly tangled into dirty drums and deep bass. “The Wrath of Mr Sparkles” and “Don’t Give Me Up” are not to be taken lightly, unrelenting and unrestricted to any musical parameters.
