Biography

Martin Roberts and Lee Tyler met in 2005 whilst studying Music Technology courses at Staffordshire University and soon discovered their shared love for the forgotten sound of UK Garage. After a few months of DJ’ing back-to-back and making long trips to visit UK Garage nights in the capital city, the duo decided to get in the studio and put some beats together, the first of which being a bootleg remix of Craig David’s “All The Way”. A crashed computer and an unsaved song later, and the computer shortcut ‘Ctrl-S’ soon became regularly used as they started the track over again.

Drawing on influences from artists such as Sunship and Artful Dodger, the duo worked their own 2-step version of the track which immediately gained attention due to the lack of new 2-step material at the time. With their first combined work getting heavy support from the likes of DJ EZ, it was quickly snapped up for the next Riddler Records release, for which the duo also crafted a bootleg mix of John Legend’s “Ordinary People”.

Keen not to forget their roots as DJ’s, the duo got involved on a prime-time internet radio show, in which they showcased the best in old and new Garage. Due to the popularity of their show, the guys were invited to guest on numerous London pirate radio stations before securing their very own show on London’s leading SubJam 104.7FM, alongside the likes of The Wideboys, Delinquent and Matt Jam Lamont. As DJ’s, Control-S have an increasingly busy schedule both in the UK and worldwide. Their unique style of mixing leaves their live sets and mix CD’s highly anticipated.
