London, UK - Signature Records
Dominick Martin aka Calibre has been responsible for some of the most beautiful tracks in drum & bass to date and continues to drop jaws worldwide with his sublime and sultry productions. From his first full length LP on Creative Source to his latest album "Condition" on his own label Signature, Calibre's sound has progressed taking in elements of jazz, funk, dub and techno but lost none of it's soul. His influence in drum & bass has been profound yet Calibre continues to evolve as an artist, exploring new techniques and styles in his music. Having played all over the world from Belfast to Dunedin, Calibre certainly knows how to captivate a crowd. His sets focus primarily on the deeper, more musical side of drum & bass yet never disappoint the dancefloor. Each performance features a high percentage of his own original music, much of it never to be heard again, and each set cements his position as the undisputed leading light of the deeper side of Drum and Bass. Artists and DJ's from all corners of the electronic music spectrum constantly remark on Calibre DJ sets restoring their faith in Drum & Bass as a vital musical force.
