ESP is 20 + New Roster Additions

May 2016 sees ESP Agency turn 20...many happy returns to us!

Founded in 1996, the agency quickly established itself with tours in its territory including Photek's ‘Modus Operandi’, Reinforced’s ‘Enforcers’ and Kemistry & Storm’s 'DJ Kicks’ to name but a few. From these foundations we have continued to build our ever evolving roster and work with some of the very best names in the scene, helping to spread the word of Drum & Bass.

20 years represents almost the entire history of D&B, from the evolution of Jungle with it's roots in the cities of Britain in the mid 90's to present day where D&B is more popular and well known than ever before, a truly global cultural movement. We are proud to have played our part in the growth of the music we love and it is testament to the pioneering spirit and artistic integrity of all our artists, past and present, that has allowed us to do so.

Over the years we have also worked with countless promoters all over the world, building enjoyable working relationships whether they book just one act from us, or hundreds. Chances are that if you read this you are one of them, so thank you for your continued support !

As part of our continued growth, we are pleased to announce the addition of 3 new names to the roster - S.P.Y, Icicle (DJ & Live) and MC GQ.

Here's to the next 20 years!
