Powered by Audioscrobbler™Dutch producer and DJ Tommy de Roos has been mutating jungle and hardcore as FFF since the 1990s. Piling noise and distortion on top of intense, complex breakbeats and gargantuan bass lines, he was one of the early innovators of the breakcore scene, as well as its dancehall-influenced raggacore subgenre. His work throughout the 2000s, such as the -issued 12" The Feeling, consisted of violently ecstatic bastardizations of rave, happy hardcore, and ragga-jungle, and he pushed this sound further with subsequent full-lengths for the Japanese label , including 2011's 20.000 Hardcore Members Can't Be Wrong. Since the mid-2010s, he's generally toned down the distortion and produced more atmospheric, focused tracks, leading a revived jungle scene along with producers and DJs such as and Coco Bryce.

Tommy de Roos first attempted to DJ techno and rave records in the early 1990s, and began experimenting with making music from sampled tape loops, a keyboard, and feedback. After his family acquired a computer, he started using tracker software, which drastically changed his approach to music-making. He started a zine and label called Orange Socks in 1997, and released breakcore, noise, and experimental cassettes by himself, his friends, and artists he met through trading tapes. He started issuing tracks on vinyl in 2001, beginning with a split EP with Fast Forward, and followed by records on labels including , Clash Records, and Sprengstoff Recordings. That year, FFF and also organized Breakcore a GoGo, one of the first regular breakcore events in Europe. After the series ended in 2004, FFF started a similar monthly called Wreck Havoc. A 12" titled after the event series was released in 2007, and the happy hardcore-influenced The Feeling appeared on the same year.

Following a 2008 tour of Japan with and DJ Technorch, FFF became more heavily involved with the Japanese hardcore scene. He released several full-lengths on Tokyo label , including the 2011 double CD 20.000 Hardcore Members Can't Be Wrong and two split albums with DieTRAX. A 2015 split EP with Coco Bryce marked FFF's shift from breakcore towards old-school jungle, mixing heavy breakbeats with more atmospheric textures. He's successfully continued in this style, releasing additional splits with Bryce and solo records like 2017's Badman Touchdown, additionally flirting with footwork on the same year's Dubcore Volume 12. Continuing his productive output into the 2020s, FFF released records on , , Diamond Life, and several other imprints. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
