As something of a musical anomaly, Jonathan Kievit has rapidly become one of the most revered producers of recent times. With unparalleled support from some of the most respected names in the industry, Signal has managed to raise the standards of drum and bass production, causing a furore amongst fans and fellow producers alike.
After his debut release on Ammunition Recordings in early 2015, Signal quickly caught the attention of the major labels. Just a few short months later, his collaborative track with Disprove entitled ‘Arkaik Twelve’ was picked up by pioneering drum and bass label Renegade Hardware, propelling him into the limelight. Since then Signal has been busier than ever. After returning to the studio, he has finalised a number of highly anticipated solo projects and collaborations, all due for release in 2015 on labels such as Invisible Recordings, Lifestyle Music, Overtech Music, Mindtech Music and Critical Music’s digital imprint, Binary.
Whilst concentrating on his production, Signal also embarked on his second musical venture. In 2015 Signal co founded digital label ‘Fumei’, alongside respected artist ‘Skadi’. Fumei’s first release received critical acclaim and paved the way for many more successful future releases. After his first DJ appearance in early 2015 Signal has gained a fearsome reputation. His forward thinking style has very much set him aside from other young artists in the industry.
With many more exciting projects set for release and Signal far from reaching his peak the future is certainly looking incredibly bright for this young producer.
