“Terra Firma is easily the most exciting new label to emerge recently with their first release being one of the strongest label debuts I’ve heard in a long, long time.” – NinjaNinja

Both Warren & Matt have been involved with various projects prior to Terra Firma. Matt (Horton) is a talented producer and DJ having racked up millions of plays on his YouTube channel, as well as being what he calls ‘a Drum & Bass nerd’. Warren (Rous) has been a producer for 5 years, gaining success within the Chillstep scene, but is more known for his work behind the decks. From an early age Warren has been spinning Drum & Bass and has earned a following in both York and his native Kent.
