Finn Donohue (AKA Drone)
DJ, Producer, Artist
BIMM Bristol's Finn Donohue (AKA Drone) has been making waves on the electronic/grime scene lately, having just released a fantastic double A-side debut on South London based label Hear Other Sounds. His debut release for the imprint is made up of 2 tracks "Flux" and "Arctic" and is being released on limited edition 12" vinyl, a format which is enjoying widespread popularity not just with DJ's, but with the music loving public.
Both tracks received premiers via some highly respectable taste-making blogs, namely Complex and Dummy Mag and he even secured the coveted "Tune of the Month" slot in Mixmag. Additionally, Finn's also been reaching wider audiences through performances on radio stations such as Rinse FM, BBC Radio Bristol and Radar Radio.
Most recently, Finn appeared on BBC Asian Network with a "Hype Machine" mix for Yasser, the aim of which is to see how many tracks he can mix in 10 minutes.
Although he generally flies solo with his musical exploits, Drone has also been known to collaborate if the fit is right. He produced a track for grime artist AJ Tracey back in 2015 and continues to remix for various artists on numerous labels too.
Drone has also featured on award-winning streaming platform Boiler Room and played several nights with community platform, Keep Hush. It’s safe to say that Drone is an underground hit, catching a lot of buzz from fans and other DJs alike. Finn continues to release music and is doing really well. We love to see it!
