(click on image for full size) is proud to present: Flowah - promomix december 2013

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, William Brand AKA Flowah has been an original LA junglist since the golden era of ‘94. After purchasing a tape pack called "R.A.W. is Dead" by R.A.W. aka 6Blocc, Flowah was immediately hooked to these new ‘Hardcore Jungle’ sounds coming out of the UK!

In recollection of these early Drum and Bass memories, Flowah says "I've been playing stuff like Production House, XL Records and the old Prodigy works prior to 1994. I guess you can call it ‘Breakbeat Hardcore’, but it wasn't until I listened to that tape pack, that I heard the melodic chords mixed up with those breaks and laced with lethal bass lines. I became loyal to the music and I have been since that time forward."

Flowah has DJ’d all around the Los Angeles area since 1991 on a low-key basis, while still sticking to his roots as a bedroom DJ. "People may notice, I haven't changed my style from what I used to play back in the day up to what I play now. I still favor my ‘Amens’ over some trendy ‘2-step’ tunes! Maybe that's why I don't get booked as much, but at the end of the day I’m going to play what I like and that's it!"

Moving into production has been the logical progression for Flowah, as he draws directly from his past inspirations that cover dub, reggae, dancehall, funk, hip-hop and early house. "Over the last years I’ve been blessed to have met a lot of key people in the scene, mainly producers that have given me priceless knowledge and guidance. I feel very grateful for the music and wisdom they have shared.” Flowah concludes, “At the end of the day, I’m doing this for the love of Drum & Bass. I’ve dedicated the last 15 years of my life to this music with out a single regret and I will continue to do so, as long as the almighty gives me Jah light and strength. Peace."
