THE PROTOTYPES (aka Nick White and Chris Garvey) have this year drawn acclaim from Annie Mac, Danny Howard, Rene Lavice, Your EDM, Mixmag, Resident Advisor, UKF, DJ Mag, Data Transmission, and many more.
Their new album ‘Ten Thousand Feet & Rising’ is out today, written and composed by The Prototypes and spread over eleven tracks, it features some of the country’s hottest vocalists and MCs, including B3NDU, Lily MacKenzie, Kudu Blue’s Clementine Douglas, fabric Live resident 2Shy MC, rising pop star Elle Exxe, and Evie from Newcastle indie band Lowes.
Normally found tearing up festivals and venues across the world, the pair have been busy preparing for their new album, and working on new material and remixes, having previously remixed acts ranging from Ed Sheeran to Avicii to Friction.
The Prototypes recently announced a very special livestream broadcast, ‘Legacy’ to raise funds for MIND on World Mental Health Day in association with British Airways i360. Recorded live from the British Airways i360 tower in their hometown of Brighton, ‘Legacy’ saw the drum & bass duo stream a 90 minute live DJ set featuring all of their own material, VIPs, and exclusives from their 10 year career via their Facebook page.
In April, The Prototypes performed a 24 hour Drum & Bass & Jungle DJ set in partnership with D&BTV and raised £14K for the NHS through ‘NHS Charities Together’.
With the new album hitting streaming stores, Nick and Chris have dropped in and given us a slamming Top 10 featuring Dillinja, Sub Focus & Wilkinson, Clipz, and many more.
