The FSG discipline has though always been supplemented by a range of other electronic explorations, presented via numerous solo monikers. For the 12th Birthday, they have chosen to debut a special FSG live PA drawing on two of the very best, Bleaching Agent and User Engine.  Substance resident Dommm is riding high on his imminent debut artist release as Modus, incoming via La Cheetah Club‘s in house label, Outer Zone. Strong early support has come from the likes of Resident AdvisorClone Records and Hyponik for the Detroit flavoured ‘Triple M EP’.
