The DJ Hailing from Leytonstone, Crissy Criss was constantly exposed to pioneers of the primordial Drum and Bass scene, and given the best start possible for a certified D&B selector. Given his first pair of decks at five by his step father Kenny Ken, Crissy’s mum was also the founder of the DJ Agency Ton Management. Home to the likes of Kenny Ken, Nicky Blackmarket, DJ Rap, Ratpack, EZ Rollers, Peshay and Stevie Hyper D, the musical environment was a huge influence for a young DJ - and proved instrumental in his later career. After hanging round with Drum and Bass’ brightest lights, it was no surprise that Crissy soon became interested in following the Drum and Bass heroes he admired. Crissy’s first gigs were played to an empty room, sneaking into Kenny Ken’s studio when he wasn’t home - but it was at the tender age of barely nine that his career began its meteoric ascent. After months of dedicated practise and lots of broken turntable needles, Crissy's first gig as a DJ came without warning - at an empty Festival at The Essex Show ground. A last minute replacement for Kenny Ken, Crissy ended up playing alongside the likes of Andy C and GQ - names he would regularly be associated with in the future.

  • I'm a big fan of The Prototypes and have supported them on their journey from the start. This is a great pack from one of the leading dance floor D&B artists, this pack is a reflection of the great productions you hear from The Prototypes including some of their signature sounds. Its always good to see how a another producer approaches sound design and this is a pack that will teach you just that.

    Great sample pack from a massively talented artist. Iv worked with Malux on many occasions and his sound design and production techniques blow me away every time. Anyone looking for a high end neuro sample pack with a twist then this pack is right up your street! The drums in this pack are amazing, we are only teased with a handful but that is all you need, the Bass hits are exactly as I expected, nasty! already looking forward to the next Malux pack!

The Basses and Drums in this pack are amazing! its a thumbs up from me, I'lll defo be using some of the nasty basses and bouncy kicks in this pack in a few future projects. Another great pack from Singomakers once again!

    NAIS Neurofunk Serum

    Rating: 9/10

    This pack great! 76 patches in total and if you're looking for that really gritty, gnarly and nasty Neurofunk sound then this pack is for you, some real nice reese type hybrid bass's in there too with the 'Ahtung' patches being my favourite patches in the pack.

    This serum pack is full of great 'dirty' patches, exactly what it says on the tin!. Some really cool experimental envelopes making the post processing on basses really interesting. 'Bass Rebellion' is defo a favourite in the pack. Defo recommended for for some dark, rolling Neurofunk production!

    Massive X DnB

    Rating: 8/10

    Some great patches in this pack. I found myself influenced by quite a few other sounds in here that helped me find my way around the new Massive X. Lots of nice sounding stuff in here from Neuro to Jump up. Defo recommend for users of Massive X trying to get the hang of things!

    Drum And Bass 4

    Rating: 9/10

    The production in this pack is superb! Amazing sounding drum loops and a wide range of kicks and snares that have managed to find their way into a few of my own productions. Some great Bass shots that you can loop up and really have fun with. Great work all around, highly recommend!

    Drum And Bass 5

    Rating: 10/10

    Sound design on everything in the pack is on point! Absolute filth to get your track sounding where it needs to be. Great snappy drums and very sick bass shots to get stuck in with. If you're looking for a pack with some energy and neuro influences this is the one for you without a doubt.
