UK:ID are a dynamic high energy live dance band that hail from Glastonbury. They developed their unique style from an array of genres including Dance, Drum and Bass, Rock and Hip-Hop, taking inspiration from modern culture and news to create a positive hard hitting sound.
UK:ID was formed in Stafford while attending Staffs University in 2011, the band gained interest very quickly and were signed to the university indie label Phoenixx Records releasing their debut EP Dole. In 2014 UK:ID started a crowd funding campaign to help fund, promote and self release their debut album. In late 2014 Ella Harris joined the band adding her dynamic soulful voice to an already exciting sounding album. The first single ‘Freedom of Speech’ was released in March 2015 . The album debuted in the top 50 Electronic album charts on iTunes and ‘Freedom of Speech’ and ‘Something or Nothing’ have racked up 13K and 15K views respectively.
UK:ID have also had success with collaborations, most notably with Killa Kela’s Them and Us and Muzzy. UK:ID were able to officially remix a track from Them and Us, called ‘Icarus’, which was included on the Icarus EP. The remix was added to the Big Bass playlist, one of Japan’s biggest playlists on Spotify amounting to 141K plays, and the track debuted on the MOR Network Youtube channel reaching 4.5K views. UK:ID collaborated with major Drum and Bass producer Muzzy, joining forces to create the track ‘Play’, which features on Muzzy’s F Minor Factory EP which was released by MonsterCat in 2016, it debuted on UKF and has reached 375K views and counting, it also reached an impressive 14 in the Beat Port 100 charts.
In 2016, due to the attention gained from their live shows, UK:ID were given the opportunity to support Scouting For Girls at The Godney Gathering Festival in front of 5000 people. This was followed up in 2017 when UK:ID also won a national competition to support Bastille at The Pilton Party
