Bio: Best friends since reception, Fitzy & Rossy B have always had an interest in music. In secondary school they both taken music as one of their GCSE subjects. Never to conform, the two would partner up to “work” on their assignments together in a sound proof room which consisted of listening to mix tapes mixed by Fitzy. Ross would have one hand on the door and one on the pause button in case the teacher entered the room.
After a few months of listening to mix tapes and not much course work being completed, the school had a delivery of music production software for kids – Dance eJay.
Fitzy took a copy home and soon figured out that a bounce sample could be added to the programs built in sampler. He immediately rang Ross and arranged to meet up that weekend to create their first track at the age of 15.
Ready or not, Secret, Everybody’s bouncin, On the beach, Silence, and a few more tracks were all produced on Dance eJay and instantly signed.
Wanting to take their productions to the next level, the boys decided to attend music production schools in Manchester. Now armed with the knowledge of Cubase, Reason, Live and other more professional DAW’s they started to produce at a higher level, earning them a name in the scene which lead to residencies and international bookings.
Now over a decade on, their sound – whether it be their older tracks or new ones – is still heard at almost every event and continues to influence many producers.
But the best is yet to come…
