Distance (born Greg Sanders) is a British dubstep producer and DJ notable for being one of the first pioneers of the genre.[1][2][3] He also founded the record label Chestplate, whose sonic direction followed his style, fusing metal influences with dubstep templates.[4][5]

Distance's involvement in Mary Anne Hobbs' 2006 BBC Radio 1 Dubstep Warz show [6][7][8] lead to wider notoriety for him and also the genre as a whole.[9] He is also known for having worked with artists such as Skream and Benga. His style is noted for being dark and full of distortion. [10][11]
