About the artist:

Dascyllus are south London based producers and DJs Tim Nugent and Tom Belton. Following their first studio session together in 2005, a progressive breakbeat track with plenty of nuskool leanings emerged, 'Odessa Keys'. This found its way in to the hands of Hybrid with another track, 'Floating Point', and the two were soon being dropped in Hybrid's sets everywhere from Glastonbury to the Glade festival. With Annie Nightingale providing support on her Radio 1 show, it wasn't long before Dascyllus were picked up by UK label Sinister Recordings.

Their first vinyl release 'Helical Scan', backed with 'Spectrometer' was released in September 2006, receiving support from the likes of the Plump DJs, Meat Katie and Elite Force, as well as radio support on Tayo's Kiss 100 show. This was followed up by further releases on Inaspace Recordings in 2007. Their latest single 'Tokamak' has been picked up by Glack Audio, with a remix coming from Stefan Anion. Expect to hear this winter 2009.

Retroid (Morphosis / Ego Shot / HU):
"Nice release, i will play both tunes in my mixes"

Bennie Project (Glack Audio / NE):
"I like them both
i like the combination of the deep arp and the steaming beats."

BETA (Re:Connect / Sound Of Habib / UK):
"Both Tracks smashing up some nice beats with their own distinctive take, love the prog/electro feel of the Stefan Anion mix. Both would work for me on the dance floor."

Llupa ( (Disc Breaks @ NSB Radio / AU):
"Hey guys, thanks for flicking this through! As you know, I've been loving the original for a long time, so great to see it great a release - nice work!
The original is a classic stab of deep breaks, not too proggy, not to breaksy - just wicked head down groove and with enough hook to keep you riding it. Much love for this tune. Why can't these guys make more tunes!
Great choice for remixer - takes on a similar path, but with a more chilled vibe. The old skool break is cool.
Sweet remix but it's all about the original for me - releases like this are what make Glack one of my favourite labels."

9b0 (Glack Audio / Electrofly / HU):
"Liked the original theme a lot, but Stefans remix is hard to beat. Perfect. Like it a lot: cant remember, when i heard such a high quality breaks track."

Neztic (Sango Music / Mexico):
"Awesome guys, this tune has been one of my personal favourites for years, now the remix gives it a whole new fresh and interesting flavour."

Kevin Beber (UK):
"luv it .
great artwork too !"
