One of the founders of Drum and Bass and most certainly the founder of Jump Up DnB (with his track Warhead), Krust was brought up on a council estate called Knowle West, in the city of Bristol. Krust earned respect through countless releases on V Recordings (the classic track Warhead for example) and with friends Roni Size & DJ Die made the label the phenomenon it is today. While Krust was signed to V Recordings, he and Roni Size set up their own imprint called Full Cycle Records, which became one of the leading record labels in Drum and Bass. Near the end of the nineties, Roni Size formed a collective called Reprazent, which Krust and other Full Cycle members were a part of. Through the 2000s, Krust continued to make well received tracks such as a remix of the Roni Size song Snapshot (renamed Snapped It), Kloaking King, Follow Da Vision, and many others. In 2006, Krust relocated to London and took time off from producing. In 2008, the Full Cycle camp decided that they wanted to go their separate ways, so the label was shut down. But in 2010, Krust started producing again, and teamed up with friend Nick Toots, to create a band called the "The Rules", and his own imprint called Rebel Instinct.
