After an astonishing rise to fame DJ and production duo The Prototypes have rapidly become one of the most recognized names among the 'new breed' in drum and bass. Accredited as amongst the freshest and most exciting talents to emerge in recent years we are pleased and excited to announce the exclusive signing of The Prototypes to Shogun Audio.

With a trademark big room sound support for The Prototypes has come from all areas including Andy C, Friction, Sub Focus, Roni Size, Fresh, Pendulum and more. Off to a great start they were recently announced as one of ATM magazine's 2010 'Leaders of the Nu-Skool' and are proud to have hosted a UKF podcast that's reached a phenomenal 250,000 downloads and counting.

Their infections track 'Cascade' has brought them massive Radio 1 support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Nightingale, Annie Mac, Fabio & Grooverider and had also earned them a highly acclaimed mini-mix as part of Jaguar Skills' 'Jag Fest'. All this plus forthcoming remixes on Ninja Tune and Sony BMG, the boys are demonstrating serious versatility.

Sitting amongst the Shogun camp, The Prototypes will no doubt bring a different angle to the current spectrum and are a welcome addition to the shogun family. Interesting things to come from these ones; be prepared for some fatal releases, and even an LP in the near future.

Shogun Audio - Since its inception in 2004 Shogun Audio has gone on to become one of the most essential labels in dance music today. Driven by it’s founders Friction and business partner K-Tee the Shogun brand has developed in such a way that it is now an all-encompassing drum and bass juggernaut releasing anything from the deep and minimal sounds of Icicle to the dirty tech grooves of Break and the tear-out party anthems of Spor and indeed Friction & K-Tee themselves.

Artists to have released music through Shogun include not only their exclusive signings of Alix Perez and Icicle but also the likes of Jonny L, Break, Marcus Intalex, Spectrasoul, Noisia, Klute, Spirit and of course Friction & K-Tee. In doing so the back catalogue has become one of absolute quality in a relatively short space oftime.
