- As their name suggests, Double_Negative are a positive force within the growing New Zealand breakbeat scene.
- The lads, John Henderson and Nick Gardner met at an audio engineering course in 2002 and have been making waves in the breakbeat scene ever since.
- They began with drum n bass tunes and eventually progressed to producing solid, original breaks tunes which formed a unique sound, some dark and techy, others atmospheric but altogether their own. Nowadays, Double_Negative have been delving into the Mid Tempo / Glitch Hop genre with some good results.
- Double_Negative has been djing at various venues over the last decade and also feature on the Electric Caboose show on Radio Active 89fm.
- They have DJ’d alongside major players: Freq Nasty, Rouge Element, Breakfastaz, Plump Djs, Stanton Warriors, Krafty Cuts, NAPT & Atomic Hooligan. Double_Negative have also had their own tunes released on UK label: Mechanoise, US label Trans:verse, RUNE:RECORDINGS, Supalife and NZs own Empathy Recordings.
- They have also worked on remixes and collaborations with The Upbeats (NZ), Neztic (Mexico) and White Papoo (France). Having developed a techy and bass driven production sound, Double_Negative are committed and devoted producers always on the search for the best breaks and phattest bass lines than ever.
