DJ Clutch & DJ Dyer
Brazilian born Carlos Lima is a drum and bass producer & DJ. With over 40 different tracks released, and forthcoming on a wide selection of imprints including: Soul:r, Innerground, Liquid V, Critical, Advanced, CIA, Spearhead, and Cylon Records, he is a perfect example of a truly versatile producer. His music is regularly supported by the likes of Marky, Goldie, Marcus Intalex, Total Science, Commix, C.A.B.L.E, Bailey, Bryan Gee, and Doc Scott to name a few, and his production techniques are also the topic of conversation on many message boards.
Passionate about, and affected by, a mass of superlative music around him S.P.Y knew from the age of 12 he wanted to be a DJ. While his friends played football, S.P.Y was more interested in watching DMC championship videos and finding ways to get himself heard, DJ’ing regularly at local charity nights and school events, playing everything from hip-hop, to jazz, to disco.
In 1992, Carlos became a frequent fixture at an underage matinee club. DJing every Sunday afternoon, playing acid house and techno to the crowds that wanted to listen, Carlos was completely dedicated to making people dance.
In 1996, the musical landscape had begun to shift in tandem with S.P.Y’s taste in music. Carlos moved away from acid house and techno and turned his hand to the dark and deep depths of jungle and drum and bass.
Working alongside a huge network of DJ friends, Carlos weaved his way to the top of many promoters lists, and before long, he was playing in a multitude of nightclubs, entertaining thousands with a selection of his most favourite drum and bass tracks.
Come early 2000, Carlos could no longer pursue his musical dream. The level of external pressures and responsibilities on his shoulders were grand. Instead he took a job as a full-time junior graphic designer. Carlos stuck at this for three years, fast moving up the ranks. But as good as Carlos was at this, it wasn’t enough for him.
