[S.O.S, M.I.A., The Guild, Combat - Chicago] Mr. Frosty (aka M1D1) first started djing in 1993 and has performed at countless underground parties and full scale raves in Chicago's late 90's rave scene. Working with jungle vet R.P. Smack/RipeProductions, Frosty continued to bring his music into the new millennium and by 1999 he had started writing his own tunes. In 2004 he started his own DNB label, Combat Records, and with over 40+ releases to date Combat Records is home to many Frosty releases and also to many great dnb artists worldwide. In 2006, alongside Alfonz DeLaMota, Frosty co-founded the M.I.A. Dj Collective, a nationwide drum and bass dj collective. With residences all over the US, the M.I.A. is proving to be a strong force in the stateside DNB movement today. Be it djing out of town, here in Chicago at Smartbar, or running the system at the rave, for Frosty, DNB is a way of life, and he will stop at nothing to see the M.I.A. and drum and bass reach its highest potential.
