2011 was a breakthrough year for High Maintenance. As well as releasing his debut single on Audioporn Records, ‘With You /Nowhere’. High Maintenance’s reputation as a DJ also came to the forefront with blazing sets on stage at Beatpatrol, D&BTV, Panda Drum & Bass YouTube, and Annie Nightingale’s BBC Radio 1 Show.
Forbidding the momentum to slow, High Maintenance made his mark on 2012 with the release of his ‘Never Enough’ EP on AudioPorn Records. The official music video for the titular track, ‘Never Enough’ was uploaded to UKF Drum & Bass and went on to receive hundreds of thousands of views.
High Maintenance isn’t one to be confined by genre and firmly cemented his status as a talented producer at the top of his game yet again in 2013 with the release of his highly anticipated 5 track ‘Watching Me EP’. Combining soulful liquid sensibilities with dance-floor-damaging energy, this EP proved yet again High Maintenance’s effortless ability to take on any tempo from drum and bass to drumstep and dubstep. The titular track was a collaboration between High Maintenance and fellow AudioPorn Records alumni, Mediks. ‘Watching Me Ft. Georgina Upton’ was favourited by BBC Radio 1 DJs and playlisted by BBC 1Xtra.
