State Of Mind

State Of Mind is a drum and bass duo consisting of Patrick Hawkins and Stu Maxwell.

One of the first UK artists to take an interest in State Of Mind was Oxford-based duo (and arguably the most prolific artists in the history of drum and bass), Total Science. While touring New Zealand in late 2004, Q Project and Spinback were introduced to the State Of Mind sound.

State Of Mind is a drum and bass duo consisting of Patrick Hawkins and Stu Maxwell.

One of the first UK artists to take an interest in State Of Mind was Oxford-based duo (and arguably the most prolific artists in the history of drum and bass), Total Science. While touring New Zealand in late 2004, Q Project and Spinback were introduced to the State Of Mind sound. Blown away by the strength of the music they heard, the Oxford legends instantly sought to work with the talented duo.

Label signings have amassed since this encounter. With releases on the shelves now from Total Sciences CIA Recordings, Teebee’s Subtitles Records, Futurebounds Viper label, Doc Scotts 31 Records, Simon Bassline Smiths Technique Recordings, and two tunes on the current Bad Company Presents Bad Taste LP. There are of course more works soon to be released on CIA, Subtitles, Obsessions, Horizons, Uprising & Friction’s Shogun Audio. Watch this space.

As well as continuing their strong links with C.I.A. and 31 Records in 2006, State Of Mind will be working on their debut New Zealand LP for Concord Dawns Uprising label distributed in New Zealand through major label Universal. Concord Dawn have revolutionized the way people listen to Drum and Bass music in New Zealand, and Pat and Stu are extremely honoured to be working with these innovative pioneers.

Tracks from the lads are currently on high rotate in the sets of Concord Dawn, Black Sun Empire, Doc Scott, Bulletproof, The Upbeats, Pendulum, Klute, Teebee, Matrix, Cyantific, High Contrast, Bad Company, DJ Friction, Total Science, DJ Craze, Futurebound and many more.

Sun King (CIA026) has received the heaviest play from all the vinyl outings and featured very highly on record store sales charts from around the world for 2005 (including number one seller for Austria on the Chemical Records website!).

State Of Mind host the 95BFM drum n bass show ‘Next Level’ (Saturday 9-11pm NZ time, online at www.95bfm.com) bi-weekly (with DJ Presha handling the other weeks) and as DJ’s have toured with Concord Dawn, Pendulum, Matrix, Dieselboy, and Digital to name afew. Their sets are always show stealers and the reputation of dancefloor filling domination these two talented DJs bring is spreading fast. « hide
