THE CHILLER: Featured Artist March 2013
THE CHILLER is one of the artist that sent me tracks and was part of my RUSSIAN ROULETTE mix which featured all artist from Russia. What I noticed from his production is that well made, good choices of synth sounds, bass, drums, and how his tracks flow. Drum and Bass has a very high standard when it comes to quality production and THE CHILLER definitely has it.
