Dr Meaker are a live drum and bass act who have to be seen to be experienced. At the helm is Clive, their producer, who has taken the FutureMusic challenge to make a whole track with one synth: The Behringer Neutron.  He builds the track up making the drum kit before bringing the bass and adding transition effects - before arranging it in full. Here's some more info on Dr Meaker:

With two decades of experience in the game, Dr Meaker lynchpin Clive Meaker has carved out a reputation for himself amongst the UK scene, for both his infectious, bass-heavy productions and his live shows, which see Dr Meaker adapted into a full live band complete with drums, live bass, vocalists and a horn section. 

 

A great video, and a good example of how limiting yourself pushes the dexterity of your production. Many producers have used this approach - the same method used for the Synth Explorer series of sample packs: www.loopmasters.com/genres/137-Synth-Explorer
