From their lair in Bournemouth, on the south coast of the UK, the Ultrah Bros have launched an all-out assault on the drum ‘n’ bass scene over the last couple of years.
It was only as recently as 2016 when they began to make their name as residents for their local Back to Bassics night. From that foundation they’ve blown up at a dramatic rate. Promotions like On a Mission, Innovation, Playaz, and One Nation came calling. Running sets in support of the likes of Andy C and Pendulum might be a daunting prospect for deejays that early in their career, but the Ultrah boys were up to the task.
Of course, though, alongside their explosive prowess on the decks, they’ve wasted no time in flexing their production muscles. Fatman D spotted their talent early and added them to his prestigious Biological Beats collective, giving them the platform to progress even further. Tracks like “Riddims”, “Xhale”, and “Panic Button” have garnered support from tastemakers like BBC Radio 1’s Rene LaVice, and their releases are consistently to be found at the business-end of the DnB download charts.
The Ultrah Bros bring a junglist sensibility of pushing sub-genre boundaries, combining grotty jump-up vibes with musicality to create something all of their own. And, just in case anyone doubted their work-rate, early 2018 saw them release a “Dubz Mix” featuring twenty-two unreleased tracks. So, they’ve got the ammo, they’ve got the skills, and they’ve got the ambition. This is just the beginning for Ultrah Bros.
