Data 3 are a trio of Drum and Bass producers comprised of Harry Bryson (Pola & Bryson), Dan Hartley (MIDA) and Alex Kostyakov (Syrum). The trio, all from the same sleepy West Yorkshire town, initially met through their shared love of the genre. Despite all leading busy lives, and not being locally based to one area these days, the boys still manage to lay down an exciting mix of their influences in their music, culminating in a sound entirely their own. And watching them grace the decks is truly something special to watch!
First releasing on Soulvent back in early 2015 with Solar Space (SV008), their productions float between liquid with a twist, and dark heavy rollers, which is their only rule: it has to be rolling. This ability to mix between sounds with poise, has led to releases on the likes of Soul Trader, Addictive Behaviour and Skank and Bass amongst others, and means their sets dip in and out of liquid breakdowns and into bass heavy, twisted and dark, straight up DnB.
Things really started to pick up for the group last year, receiving radio support from the likes of Friction and Noisia, to name just a few. The trio are now focusing on releasing their debut EP in early 2017.
