At 16 years old TC dropped out of school, bought a sampler and an Atari ST and started making beats, he is now touring the world as a highly respected DJ, producer and vocalist.

Since he released his début album 'Evolution' in 2007 he's won 'Breakthrough Producer' and 'Producer Of The Year' at the 1xtra Drum and Bass Awards and topped both BBC Radio 1's 'National Dance Chart' and BBC 1Xtra's 'Drum and Bass Chart'. The album was named Zane Low's 'Record of the Week' and extensively played by Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Jo Whiley, Mary Ann Hobbs, Fabio and Grooverider. Aside from the BBC it was also widely played by Hype on Kiss 100 and Eddie Temple Morice on XFM. Hits from the album include Deep, Rockstar, Jump, Borrowed Time (F.t. Subfocus) and Where's My Money, which went on to be remixed by Caspa and become an early dubstep anthem.

TC has massive support of his dub plates from DJs such as: Pendulum, Chase & Status, Subfocus, Andy C, Friction, Swift, Blackmarket, Skream, Benga, Joker, N-type, Hatcha, Rusko, Diplo, Shy FX, Blame, and many, many more. When not producing for himself TC keeps busy by remixing tracks by Rihanna, Damian Marley, NAS and Tinie Tempah.

More than just a producer TC tours in the UK, Europe and America as both a feature DJ and as a Vocalist with his live band, with which he recently recorded at the BBC's legendary Maida Vale Studios for the BBC Radio 1 Drum and Bass Show. TC has also appeared as a guest vocalist on Pendulum's 'Hold Your Colour' album and on the new Subfocus track 'Follow The Light'

Right now TC is hard at work putting the finishing touches on his hotly anticipated second album. Watch this space.
SS is short for Scratchenstein, which is a name he used when he was a hip hop scratch DJ, and a part of the hip hop act, The Formation Five, whose name inspired the name of his record label. His wife, Tania, runs the artist management agency, UMC (Underground Music Collective). .

Originally a breakdancer, DJ Stratchenstein began playing electro music as a teenager in the early 1980s. He then played hip hop and rare groove before turning to producing in 1988 initially acid house, hardcore, breakbeat and finally drum and bass tracks.

SS got his big break DJ'ing at the big British raves of the early 1990s such as Telepathy. Since then he has gone on to DJ world wide.

SS is the co-founder (with Eidris Hassam) and head of the Formation Records label, and has released over 100 tracks using a number of aliases. He also co-owned the 5HQ record shop (previously called Sneakers) in Leicester and ran the Fresh FM pirate station.

The Formation label has become a stable for new drum and bass producers such as John B and Twisted Individual.
