That every cause has an effect is common knowledge. For Optiv, Stuart, Mark and Tobie, the cause is drum & bass, and their effect is both indelible and undeniable. Known collectively as Cause 4 Concern, the crew came together back at the start of 1999, when Optiv and Tobie were affiliated with Aspect Records, and Mark and Stuart were working for Vinyl Distribution. A testament to their talent, it took only a few short months of collaborative creation before they scored their first signing to the seminal Moving Shadow. The first 12" dropped that December, and secured the support of DJs Doc Scott, Fierce and Grooverider, amongst many others. Releases on respected labels Tru Playaz, Renegade Hardware, Moving Shadow and Timeless Recordings were to follow. By the end of the year, C4C had been nominated in the ‘Best Newcomers' category of the Knowledge Magazine Drum & Bass Awards. Impressing their peers as well as the press, demand for their product increased, resulting in releases on renowned labels BC Presents, Metro, Quarantine and Virus. This well deserved exposure expedited their inevitable ascent through the ranks of the Drum & Bass scene. Recently reformed after a few years of inactivity, 2008 sees the formidable foursome known as Cause 4 Concern return to wreak havoc with their first full length album. Spread over five separate 12"s to be followed by a double CD, Pandemic picks up right where the lads left off - the leading edge of electronic music. All of the elements that made them one of the most exciting and entertaining production posses in drum ‘n' bass remain intact, and are both refined and reinforced.
