2013 is the golden year for S.P.Y, aka Carlos Lima, the DJ and producer with a career firmly rooted in the underground drum and bass scene. After signing to heavyweight label Hospital Records in 2012, S.P.Y has moved from strength to strength bringing his trademark heavy, soulful sound to the masses. His debut LP, 'What The Future Holds' was released on Hospital Records the same year to critical acclaim. The LP not only received significant support from fellow artists and topped online sales charts, but was also awarded the coveted 'Best Album' at the annual 2012 Drum & Bass Arena awards.
Moving to London from São Paulo ten years ago, S.P.Y was quick to establish himself within the UK drum and bass scene. After six months of working with only basic equipment, S.P.Y's natural talent for production saw his first ever release signed to Metalheadz in 2005. Discovered by Goldie himself, 'Till Dawn' was featured on the 'Winter Of Content' compilation and was a key indication of the quality of things to come. In 2006 S.P.Y signed his second release 'Black Flag / Double Dragon' on newly established label Med School, Hospital Records' alternative, experimental imprint.
This release was quickly followed by 'Ghost Ship / Silent Sleeper' and S.P.Y began collaborating with artists such as BCee, Physics and Kiat. In 2009 S.P.Y released his first solo EP on Marcus Intalex's label Soul:R and had releases on many other labels including Digital Soundboy, Innerground and Metalheadz. During this time S.P.Y also developed lasting production partnerships with Total Science and DJ Marky. The following years were immensely successful for S.P.Y, with support from producers across the scene.Make S.P.Y Playlist
