3rd Day Syndrome

3rd Day Syndrome


We are a band/production outfit who take elements of funk, electro, hip hop, soul and alternative rock to create our edgy have-to-dance to tracks.


The band/production outfit 3DS is made up of Stefan Maingot, Andrew Keegan and Scott Bellchambers. Their continuing mission is to make infectious, funky, edgy have-to-dance to tracks. From their sublime instrumentals to their vocal tracks, 3DS have shown that their melting pot of influences really is the future of music UK music. 3rd day Syndrome have honed their electrifying live skills playing across London's live music scene at venues such as Café De Paris, Hard Rock Café, Sound in Leicester Square, ULU, Brixton Telegraph, The Cobden Club, Push as well as shows for London Fashion Week and a Regents Park Festival. In 2006/2007 they completed a 6 month residency at the Notting Hill Arts Club where the likes of Lily Allen and The Libertines first made a name for themselves.
At the back end of 2006 3DS were named the best live alternative band in the UK by Microsoft and their Live Spaces platform. This not only gave them the credibility to start working with other artists it also provided them with a £10,000 cash prize. This money was used to produce an EP and video which was then released at the end of 2007 through their own digital label Rock Pimp Media. The Catalyst EP is currently on sale throughout the world on Itunes and all other major digital download stores. The lead track from the EP, Fat Girls Fighting, has received critical acclaim and even made it onto Radio 1's Zane Lowe's coveted playlist. XFM's weekend presenter Marsha Shandur also heaped praise on Fat Girls Fighting commenting, "It makes you shake your ass furiously." The production has of it hints of classic Quincy Jones and a touch of Rick Rubin creating the completely unique infectious and exhilarating 3rd Day Syndrome sound. The video has also been an underground hit accumulating in the region of 50,000 views across the various video distribution platforms.
2007 also saw the beginning of a successful partnership with the Gorillaz vocalist Rosie Wilson. 3DS wrote and performed songs with Rosie live on an MTV session and also in front of a 300 strong crowd for London Jazz week. This was broadcast live on Radio3. 2008 saw 3DS form a strategic partnership with the founding fathers of the UK Grime scene Roll Deep. Their membership includes Wiley who had a No 2 smash hit with Wearing My Rolex this year. Although this seemed like an unlikely pairing on paper it has been surprisingly successful. This was first showcased on a live BBC 1xtra broadcast from BBC's Maida Vale studios and live dates are lined up for 2009. 3DS also had their first Radio 1 session this November when they performed with upcoming singer Alex Mills and another one lined up within the next few months. They are currently working with a number of singers for their new album tracks the lead single being "Drag Me Back" which features Kivanc on vocals.
