Throwback Thursday – 4hero: early pioneers of drum & bass

First Throwback Thursday, our attempt at sharing the amazing music of the founding fathers of modern day electronic music.

Marc Clair and Gus Laurence founded 4hero in 1989, along with their record label Reinforced Records. 4hero’s early music would go on to be a major influence on what would become drum & bass and breakbeat.
