Biography

(1999 – 2002)

Kemal (Turkish) & Rob Data are a Scottish Drum & Bass DJ/production duo. Between 1999 and 2002 they released a great volume of Techstep/Technoid/Neurofunk material, much of which holds anthem status in the music scene. They recorded together as Konflict from 1999 to 2000.

Hailing from Glasgow, the two producers—real names Kemal Okan and Robert Rodgers—have a strong influence in their music. With releases on labels such as Renegade Hardware (where they were signed under the name Konflict), Outbreak, Moving Shadow, Underfire, Audio Blueprint and their own short-lived Negative Recordings, their reputation as producers has preceded them far and wide. Their tracks are considered by many to be among the greatest examples of the Drum & Bass sub-genre—that many fans argue to be invalid—known as “.”

In the wake of (and perhaps precipitated by) the huge success and rumours of financial displeasure surrounding their 2000 release “Messiah” (Renegade Hardware), Kemal and Rob Data left the label and the Konflict name behind, opting instead to go under their existing identities as Kemal & Rob Data. It is worth noting that though Kemal amassed a great deal of solo work as well as producing with Rob Data, he also has production credits alongside such artists as Dom & Roland, Technical Itch, Paul Reset, Black Sun Empire and Dresden Codex. Rob Data, for reasons unknown, has only ever produced with Kemal. In 2002 Rob quit DJing and production.

    @LETBACK: Messiah is one of the most influential things to happen to the early neurofunk era. And it gets most of its popularity by itself, not just because of these shitty remixes.

    It's such a fucking shame they were fucked over. Would they really have been shot if they didn't hand the tracks over? I don't think so. Drum & Bass was robbed of two of the most promising producers. It saddens me when life comes to this. Just think where they could be now if the incident had never have happened :(
