Hot on the heels of the last release ‘Firewalker’, Thrash Pilot are back with another storming double A side., “Stampire”. (KILLSCR02)
Jim Kennedy last released under the name ‘Thrash Pilot’ in 1999 on Manchester’s classic ‘Abstrakt Recordings’ along with label mates ‘Proteus’ and ‘DJ Hidden’.
A former live act, Thrash Pilot once performed at drum and bass nights UK wide. After moving to Leeds and presenting a show on pirate station ‘Move FM’ along with his DJ partner ‘DJ Snappa’ Jim, now under the name ‘Morpheus’ released on the now defunct ‘Nu-‐Urban Music’.
After a long period away from the scene after becoming disillusioned with the state of drum and bass a few years ago, Jim is back with his new label Killscreen Recordings.
The idea behind the label is to try and recapture some of the vibe Jim fell in love with that seems to be making a small comeback at the moment.
Albums like ‘the prototype years’ and ‘platinum breaks’ have been a major influence for his new releases as well as old ‘Future Forces’ tracks on classic Renegade Recordings.
All things change however, and Jim has thrown a modern twist on these dark and sparse recordings.
