drum & bass producer

Biography

Pascal is the stage name of drum and bass DJ and producer Pascal Redpath.

Like many other producers in the genre, Pascal's involvement in drum and bass came through a love of hip hop. From breaking to electro and honing his DJ technique through following DJ Cash Money and Jazzy Jeff, he went on to lay down his own material onto a four track through cutting records on a pair of turntables.

Although he had been dismissive of acid house, a close friend introduced him to the rave scene in the early 1990s - drawn in by the hip hop samples and influences, which had crept into the music over time. From DJing he became involved in production; following the white label 'Fubar EP' with a couple of singles as Bad Influence before eventually hooking up with Sponge to form Face Records in 1992.

His first solo outing acted as testament to his skills as a producer, 'Johnny Jungle' going on to be remixed often and a record influential to the 'dark' period which came to dominate the music of the time with its heavy sounds, technical percussives and horror film aesthetic. A series of singles led to 'The Face of the Future' album featuring artists such as Goldie and Alex Reece with tracks for Suburban Base raising his profile still further with 'Flammable', 'Killa Sound' and 'Move On'.
