closegeoff barrow is a founding member of portishead and producer / label owner of invada records uk. barrow and salisbury met over 10 years ago when they both joined a bristol football team for old men. after many disastrous games they decided they might be more productive working on a music project together. other work commitments kept them apart until late 2010, when the pair met up with a screenwriter to discuss some possible work on a feature film project. although their involvement with this particular film didn't continue, a collaborative writing relationship had begun - when barrow and salisbury revisited and started expanding upon this early material they decided to continue writing what was essentially soundtrack music. barrow, along with album designer and long term friend, marc bessant, were both avid '2000ad' readers from a young age, and the sprawling metropolis and classic stories of mega-city one seemed the ideal inspiration for this 'soundtrack'. although mega city one has been brought to life in great detail over many years by the acclaimed work of writers and artists alike, there is still huge scope for readers to have their own vision/soundtrack of the city.

DROKK arrives at the tail-end of a saturating boom in raw, retro synth music. Meaning it's overly familiar. Neither does it add anything new to the canon.»
