James Roach - Producer, Recording Engineer and Mixing Engineer
Mario Christophi - Producer
Famous are a production duo specialising in the production of bass influenced dance music, from dubstep and house to RnB and DnB.
The band consists of James Roach and Mario Christophi who both met whilst studying Music Technology at Staffordshire university.
Both have a background in DJing and tell us that their influences come from the sound of UK garage which was sweeping the country at the time of their formation. They managed to channel this love for dJing and dance music, and began creating fresh new ideas of their own. The group’s ‘Famous’ sound borrows influences from many different genres, and manifests itself as a commercially acceptable sound, whilst still maintaining a high level of credibility.
