4hero is an English drum'n'bass
band, that go all the way back to the start of d'n'b. Preceding even Goldie
with the album "In Rough Territory
" (1991), 4 hero is well established in the d'n'b scene. However, they haven't been very commercially successful. With the release of their new album "Creating Patterns
" (2001), the single "Les Fleurs
" has been moderately successful with some MTV
airtime. More important than MTV, they got some good reviews and gained respect in the established music scene.
The masterminds behind 4hero are both English, Mark May (Manix) and Dego MacFarlane (Tek 9). They sometimes operate under other bandnames such as "Jacobs Optical Stairway", "Tom & Jerry", "Nu-Era" and "Cold Mission".
