Time    Yesterday at 10:00pm - Today at 6:00am

Location    Zen - 17 Albert st Auckland

This July will see the long awaited arrival of Survival to our shores to showcase his unique flavour of Drum and Bass direct from the U.K. Accompanying him will be the Kiwi artist now based in Melbourne known as Consequence. 2009 saw both Survival and Consequence release their debut albums on dBridges hugely respected label "Exit Records" which has inspired this combination of the "Survive For Never" tour. Both of these albums possess the style and quality that you would expect to be selected and backed by a Drum and Bass Don such as dBridge and you can be assured that this will be a DnB night with a special difference.

Surfacing under the guises of Akustic Research and Banaczech on Vinyl Addiction and Partisan Recordings in 1995, Steve Kielty parted company with co-conspirator Roy McCabe and after a long break from drum & bass re-emerged as Survival in 2005.
With a plethora of well received releases on labels including Creative Source, DNAudio, Quarantine, Critical, Shogun Audio as well as his debut self titled album released on Exit Records in 2009 show that Survival’s deep, organic sound has rapidly earned him a reputation as one of the true craftsmen of modern Drum & Bass.
Collaborations with D-Bridge, Break, Silent Witness, Fierce, Sabre, Chris Inperspective 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.
