Darshan, a dark goa trance duo, was started in 1995 by Grant Collins and Mark Robinson, progressing into a solo project for Grant in 1998.

He is also releasing as “Skein” :house and breaks (from cinematic to drum n bass).
Flying Rhino Digital is currently being relaunched, picking up where it left off, and pushing new boundaries with driving basslines, tripped out rhythms and cutting edge production techniques.
