Comprising Ken Sharman and Lars, the Glaswegian-based U.S.S. first came to prominence in 1993 with the hugely popular progressive cut, ‘Oscillator’. The track stood out readily from the mass of 12-inches, a fact the band attributed to the care they exercise in the studio, even down to programming their own software for editing sounds. To this end they have their own high-tech establishment within earshot of the Parkhead football ground, where record company executives flocked flashing chequebooks following the record’s impact. Resolutely, the duo decided to link with local independent Bomba instead, ensuring they retained full artistic control. Lars was initially influenced by the work of Derrick May, going on to work as a DJ himself, and believes his perspective as a regular on the turntables is valuable in assessing what it is that audiences want.
