Gil Norton’s production credits read like a who’s who in the world of music and he recently won a Grammy for the Foo Fighters album Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace.

UK based producer Blame, AKA Conrad Shafie has been at the cutting edge of dance music for almost 20 years. It all started back in 1991 with the release of ´Music Takes You´ on Moving Shadow Records, which is regarded today as a key track in the early development of Drum and Bass music. Then in the mid 90s, Blame signed to LTJ Bukem´s Good Looking Records label and mixed the second volume in the now legendary ´Logical Progressions´ series. Then came his own 720 degrees label which saw the Blame sound evolve further and releases on Charge, Metalheadz and Hospital Records cemented his place in the hierarchy of UK Drum and Bass. Time and Space have interviewed him, and you can see it here!
