The term “instinct” is defined as the basic motivations in human life. Besides eating, drinking and sleeping, there are emotions such as anger coming up when the need to defend or the basic fight or flight response when faced with a stressful or dangerous situation. Instincts are the behavioural responses that are critical to our survival as individuals and as a species.

INSTINKT is a dynamic Drum & Bass trio that consists of the three versatile producers Rune, Kaiza and Tomtek.

The group initially started out in early 2015 with the union of the two German Drum & Bass producers Rune and Kaiza. Ever since the inception of the group they have been working hard on establishing and constantly improving their own sonic signature. Tomtek (from Denmark) was brought in to collaborate with the group early on, and in late 2017 the three of them decided it was time to evolve and merge - INSTINKT grew even stronger and became a trio.

It was not long after the birth of INSTINKT that they were discovered and recognized for the consistent quality of their output. This consistency stems from the groups basic motivations to evolve - this is essential to survival. INSTINKT does not flee, they stand and fight. They have already been released on labels such as Optiv`s Red Light Records, Maztek`s Subculture Music, Ammunition Recordings, Lifestyle Music UK, Kill Tomorrow, and many more.

INSTINKT and their distinct, forward thinking and remarkable sonic character is in high demand and highly acclaimed by some of the biggest influencers in the Drum & Bass scene, features on the prestigious Noisia Radio, notable critics by and plays in the dj-sets of Drum & Bass tastemakers such as Optiv, CZA, Maztek, Evol Intent, John B, Mindscape, Noisia, Legion, and many more.

It is evident that INSTINKT is a force to be reckoned with, and that the writings of the history of the dynamic trio has just begun.
