As a familiar name on the play charts of many of drumnbass top DJs recently, youd be forgiven for thinking that Survival is a new artist; but youd be wrong. In fact Steve Kielty has been involved in both producing and engineering since the inception of drumnbass back in 1993/94 when he kicked off his musical career as a studio engineer. It was around this time that he paired up with Roy Mcabe under the guises of Akustic Research/Banaczech, releasing records on two very prolific labels between 1995 and 2003: Vinyl Addiction and Partisan Recordings. From there he took a short break from producing and worked as a Studio Manger for West Row studios until 2005 when he re-emerged as a solo artist under the alias Survival. With a plethora of well received releases on labels such as Creative Source, Exit Records, DNAudio, Quarantine, Play Music and Shogun Audio, Survivals deep, organic sound has rapidly earned him a reputation as one of the true craftsmen of modern drumnbass. Collaborations with Break, Silent Witness, D-Bridge, Fierce, Sabre and Zero Tolerance clearly illustrate the respect he commands from his peers, and with his newly launched Audio Tactics label providing a focused outlet for his productions, his fan base is expanding as rapidly as his discography. 15 years deep in this music, 2009 is the year in which Survival will release his first album.
