BBC Radio 1Xtra's Hot 4 2011: Loadstar - Space Between
Drum and bass producers Loadstar have been tipped for success in 2011 in our annual poll.
Xample and Lomax joined forces in 2007 as Loadstar, and their sound was an instant success, combining the raw dance-floor sound of Xample with Lomax’s musical edge. Ram Records soon saw the massive potential of this collaboration, which lead to their first single on the label, “Lowdown/The Latter”, which was released in May 2007 to heavy dance-floor exposure and great reviews. “Contra/Keep Their Heads Ringin'” was the follow up single and confirmed Xample & Lomax as a major force on the Drum & Bass scene, a partnership that has blossomed into a first class production outfit with their own unique sound. With support and interest from many of the big players in Drum & Bass, big things are lined up with their debut album which will follow on the success of label mates Chase & Status and Sub Focus.
