Kryptic Minds

Kryptic Minds consists of the two producers/DJs Simon Shreeve and Brett Bigden (Leon Switch). The pair got together in the late 90s and have produced a range of styles since. They became well known in the Drum & Bass scene after releasing a number of well respected EPs and in 2007 they released their debut highly acclaimed album "Lost In Faith". If you haven't heard any of their early 170bpm material then I highly recommend it.

In 2009 they released their first album of 140bpm half-step, titled "One of Us”. Swamp 81 signed this album and it was a big turning point for them, sending a shock wave into the dubstep scene. They soon gained support from many of the top DJs and Youngsta was soon to give the duo lots of well deserved airplay on his Rinse FM show. Kryptic Minds also run their label; 'Osiris Music UK' which has since released a number of records, each and every one of outstanding quality. I would confidently recommend anyone into the half-step sound to buy their entire back catalogue!
