Turntable Dubbers invite:

Kutmah (UK)
Half Egyptisch, half Schots, geboren in de UK en op zijn 12 uitgeweken naar de States. Samen met Gaslamp Killer en Flying Lotus stak hij meermaals de vlam in de pijp van de Low End Theory avonden in LA: FlyLo bracht de diepgang, Gaslamp de madness en Kutmah zorgde voor de party! voorbije zomer nog op 10 Days Off, nu in Petrol!







Ed Solo (UK)
Er staat dan wel Solo in zijn naam, deze bad ass producer uit de UK werkte al samen met breakbeaters Krafty Kuts, Skool Of Thoughts en Deekline, met drum'n'bass man Brockie, met turntablewizzard JFB en met beatboxer Beardyman.

Coely ft E-Phonk
Jong, Antwerps en Congolees bloed en kleur. She's got swag, attitude and A voice! Studio Brussel, HUMO en JIM zijn dolverliefd op haar single Ain't Chasing Pavements maar ze kan het verdorie ook goed live! Zo goed dat zelfs Jessie Ware en Redlight hun bewondering al lieten blijken

Skreamizm
Skreamizmlondon.com : The Skreamizm night will take a back-to-basics approach: a dark room, a massive soundsystem, an extended set, and a focus firmly on the music. Rather than staying in one place, Skream explains, they'll find him taking the crowd on a tour through the music he loves.
"It'll be everything I want everyone to like," he smiles. "It's all about people going out, actually zoning in, and actually becoming at one with the music."


Een avond in het teken van dubstep en de invloed ervan op de nieuwste sounds van vandaag en morgen.





Skream, godfather die verder kijkt dan zijn dubstepneus lang is, komt met zijn vaste MC Sgt Pokes naar Petrol.

Youandewan (hit: 1988) wordt op Beatport in alle vakjes tegelijk gestopt: minimal, tech house, deep house, house, techno, chill out en dubstep. Releaste op Magic Bag, Disfigured Dubz en Lo:Rise.

Dismantle lanceert zijn tunes via Digital Soundboy, Wheel & Deal, Black Gold, Gangoon Dubz, Terrain en Biscuit Factory. Energieke electronica, dubstep en een streep drum'n'bass.

Gullfisk is de nieuwe Belgische bass belofte. Speelde oa op 10 Days Off en releaste op labels in San Francisco en Schotland. Smooth Bass Music!

goldFFinch: amper twee jaar bezig en al releases op Saigon, Airflex Labs, Numbers en Audio Culture, optredens in London, Berlijn, Utrecht, Brussel, Brighton, 10 Days Off en mixes voor XFM/Mary Anne Hobbs. Brussels duo met 22e eeuwse producties waarin de sfeer van Duitse minimal samenkomt met funky Detroit techno, Chicago classics en de meest vernieuwende bass music.

Soulblazers H.E.N.C.H. labelnight
Blaze it up!

Een nieuwe editie van Soulblazers. En wat voor één: voor deze editie werd het toonaangevende H.E.N.C.H. label uitgenodigd. Steken dus het kanaal over voor dit dubfestijn: headliner Chasing Shadows, Giant, Lost & Mensah.

Lost werd ontdekt door dubstep- en D&Bdon Jakes. Stevige, atmosferische wobbles met originele drums.
Mensah omschrijft zijn muziek dan weer als future funky 80's boogiedubstep . De man houdt niet van labeltjes plakken (of opgeplakt krijgen), dus is de boodschap: live meemaken!
Het trio Giant maakt deuntjes zoals we dat van Russen verwachten: hard, rauw, een decibelmeter die weleens over de rooie gaat en een vibe waarbij een wodka uitstekend past...
Soulblazers getrouwen van dienst zijn Science, Daily, Subreachers & 1901.

Rampage: Chase & Status dj-set   MC Rage, Trolley Snatcha
Chase & Status zijn de hotste drum'n'bass producers van dit moment en de voorbije maanden (volgens sommigen: jaren). Hun debuutalbum More Than A Lot scoorde zeer goed en Chase & Status slaagden er eind 2009 met de single End Credits zelfs in om voor het eerst sinds lang nog eens een d&b track in de daytime playlist van Stubru, Jim en TMF te krijgen. (hoe lang was dat geleden? Sinds Kosheen?). Chase & Status komen met MC Rage naar Petrol voor een dj-set. Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, Pharell, Andy C, Hype, Pendulum, N-Type en Skream zijn fan. Mogen we van u hetzelfde verwachten?

Trolley Snatcha is een dubstepproducer en -dj die releaset op Dub Police, het label waar oa ook Caspa, N-Type, Rusko, Unitz, Tes La Rock en Emalkay hun tracks op releasen. We voelen de bassen nu al trillen!

Benga

Benga
An innovator, a maverick, a true original; Beni 'Benga' Adejumo is one of the most fascinating and forward-thinking creators working in music today. His critical credibility and pioneering accomplishments as a DJ, producer, remixer and genre-shifter are irrefutable; from the days of Dubstep's dawn to its latter-day global invasion, Benga has been at the forefront of the UK's most progressive and transgressive musical movement. With his second solo album Chapter 2 in the works, Benga is about to be propelled from the club to the charts with an incredible album that features great collaborations including newcomer Marlene Strand.

Early reactions to the set-up track, I Will Never Change, have been overwhelming. Despite being only a teaser of what's to come from the album, this wobblesome slice of meaty bass has received rave reviews. Anointed Zane Lowe's Hottest Record of the Week (played twice in a row as Zane sensed "the mood of the nation"), the song has had 500,000 views on YouTube and 50,000 plays on Soundcloud in just six days. "That track means a lot to me," nods Benga. "I spent days and days mixing it until I got the punch exactly right. It might send me mental but ultimately it's about the weight, the fatness and the punch. I spend days finding new and clever ways to get that balance."

Already in his fifteenth year of making music, Beni made his first track on Fruity Loops at the age of 9 before taking up DJing at 11 years-old. Three years later he wondered into Croydon's eponymous Big Apple record shop with his rude boy mates and announced, "I can DJ better than him." The 'him' was Hatcha, who, alongside Artwork and DMZ are widely credited with conceiving Dubstep. Artwork and Hatcha were amused; they gave the cocky teenager a shot at spinning in the shop, and seeing his prodigious talents, signed him on the spot to Big Apple Records. Over the next few years, Benga and his friend Oliver 'Skream' Jones's creations could be heard during Hatcha's sets at seminal night FWD>>. Benga Beats: Volume 1 and Newstep established him as a serious soundscaper, though it was 2008's Night, with DMZ's Coki that became one of Dubstep's definitive anthems.

Since Night and his acclaimed 2008 album Diary Of An Afro Warrior, Benga has propelled club music in many directions. There's always bass - plenty of it - but he refuses to be limited by a sound or scene. Benga has done big business with subterranean basslines, evocative instrumentation and undeniable choruses, placing him in the upper echelons of producer/ remixers working right now. "They can call it whatever they wanna call it, I'm not afraid to say that my music's Dubstep." he insists. "I've always made this mental music and I made music that's accessible. I love to use hooks because I grew up listening to Michael Jackson, real music. That's why I made music in the first place."

26 Basslines, Skank/ Dose, Crunked Up, Baltimore Clap and Katy B's On A Mission form an incredible cannon of music that has emerged from the mind of this musical genius. Since those early days of Big Apple and FWD>>, Benga has worked with everyone from Kelis to Katy B, remixed Example and The Prodigy and DJ'd quite literally all over the world; his stagediving antics helping to propel Dubstep from the domain of bedroom DJ's to the most in-demand sound in clubs from Sydenham to Sydney. It's pretty much actual fact that you need to book a day off life after experiencing a Benga set. Follow his Retweeted timeline of 70k Twitter followers as proof, were it needed. "Crowdsurfing in the London Eye, that was a good one," he laughs of his exuberant, energetic approach to DJing. "It was nothing we ever planned to do. It was just natural for me and Skream to get smashed before a show; I was turning up to places and people were telling me I was more rock and roll than rock and rollers!" Funny, bright, charismatic, and like all genius musicians, a bit mad, Benga's enigmatic personality shines both behind the decks and within his music.

In 2010, alongside Artwork and Skream, Benga formed Magnetic Man and signed to Sony/ Columbia. Their self-titled debut featured an eclectic roster of vocalists including Ms. Dynamite, P Money and John Legend and won the trio fans from the NME to Pop Matters. Now signed as a solo artist to Sony/ Columbia, Benga is ready to take his sound even further.

"I don't see myself as a producer anymore," he states. "I see myself as a scientist."

At its core, Chapter 2 is electronic music with emotion. Making the skeleton of a beat in around an hour, Benga might be inspired by everything from moving house to taking over the world. "It all ends up in there somehow," he nods. He describes Open Your Eyes as "Benga from the 2007 but in 2020. It's really hard... really, really hard. I'm trying to push it, to see what people make of me doing a major label record with some edgy, raw sounds. Some of the record is pop, but I've also done some really hard, mental songs." Pour Your Love is one of the formers with a bit of the latter mixed in; featuring the vocals of Swedish songwriter Marlene Strand, it's a huge hands in the air, hairs on the neck, festival destroying, chart smash in waiting. The electro-tinged Yellow is a 170BPM menacing monster of an instrumental that was created, like many of Benga's compositions, by singing a rough idea into his iPhone after a night out. Elsewhere, the huge Higher, a '90s rave styled collaboration, is sure to propel the two back into the Top 5.

In some ways this is vintage Benga, but with a fully forward twist. Pushing his sound far into the future while keeping half an ear on the pop charts, it's thoughtfully produced, excellently executed, properly brilliant music. As Dubstep has spread around the world, so ears have become more accepting to experimental sounds. With the likes of Skrillex winning big at the Grammy's, Benga is perfectly placed to push the sound into sitting rooms all over the world.

"Looking at Skrillex, this is the beginning of where we can take it. Where he's taken it, we can better that. We've brought it to this stage, to a place not many people thought possible and what Skrillex has done, people didn't see that as possible. It's like, what's next? Massive stadium shows? If we wanna do that, we can take it there." He's creative, yes, but ambitious too. "I want to do private jet living," he laughs. "And I want awards. I want to do things that producers don't normally do. I just have to prove to people that I can do it. That's it."



Benga (real name Beni Uthman) is a uk music producer from Croydon, and is part of the Big Apple Records label. Being inspired by Wookie and an associate of producer Skream, Benga released his debut 12", "Skank," in late 2002. A co-production with Skream called "The Judgement" appeared on Big Apple in early 2003, and also on "Dubstep Allstars Vol.1", mixed by Hatcha and then Benga began his own label %u2014 Benga Beats %u2014 and released the three-track 12" Benga Beats, Vol. 1 in 2004. He has been described as an important name in the development of the dubstep style for his fusion of the already existing South London dubstep sound with the newer East London born grime sound, and was also one of the first dubstep producers when the style was emerging in the early 2000s. He has been featured on a variety of compilations including Mary Anne Hobbs's The Warrior Dubz, Tempa's The Roots of Dubstep and the BBC 1Xtra anniversary mix. In 2008 he published his album Diary of An Afro Warrior.

Skream Pokes

Skream    Pokes
Skream is the electronic music producer and DJ Ollie Jones from Croydon, South London. One of dubstep's first and most prominent producers, he is often hailed as the 'ambassador' of the growing genre.

Most famous outside the dubstep community for his crossover hit 'Midnight Request Line' released in 2005 on Tempa, he continues to churn out classics at an amazing rate, including his 'Skreamizm' vinyl series and a self-titled album, both also on the seminal Tempa record label.

As well as releasing bad-boy tunes on other labels such as Big Apple (also the name of the shop where Dubstep was founded by Hatcha, Youngsta, Skream and a select few others) and Tectonic (Bristol resident and long-time dubstep devotee Pinch's label), 2008 marked the launch of Skream's own label 'Disfigured Dubz', introducing new artists such as Kulture and Late.

Meet Skream: Croydon's musical wonderkid. At 15 he discovered making music. Five years later he's changed the course of UK urban music, having helped build the foundations of London's most exciting new musical style, dubstep. But he's barely started yet: because right now, Skream is an artist on fire.

Skream's story begins in Croydon, in secondary school year 11. He wasn't getting on with teachers and they weren't getting on with him: but he was getting on with his music. But two friendships cemented then would start him onto the path to musical success.

Excision

Excision
Taking influence from Drum and Bass, Metal, and Hip Hop, Excision is a Dubstep artist who must be heard to be fully believed. Combining the morphing basslines of Drum and Bass, the aggressive energy of Metal, and the laid back vibes of hip hop, Excision's style is incomparable. At only 22, this young Canadian's passion for music has already driven him to become one of the biggest Dubstep acts of North America, along with DatsiK. Anyone who has heard a set by this bad boy has walked away feeling energized and refreshed. If you're lucky enough to catch a live set, expect an assault of bass-heavy tracks, mixed quickly and seamlessly. Upon the selling out and repressing of his first release, "No Escape" on his own label Rottun Recordings, it became apparent that there was a large demand for the dark side of Dubstep. This was proven to be true when Excision was asked by Electronic Music Superstars Pendulum to remix their latest single "Showdown." Look out for collaborations with North American Bass Guru Bassnectar, Pendulum, and many others ranging from Drum and Bass heavy-weight SPL, to Dubstep womp master DZ. With an upcoming U.S. tour alongside Pendulum, and a set at the fabled Shambhala Music Festival among many other Canadian and U.S. dates throughout the year, Excision is one to watch.

Loefah

Loefah
Van alle dubsteppers zijn Loefah's bassen de zwaarste. Zijn releases op DMZ (waar hij 1/3 van vormt) en Tectonic zijn een zegen voor boulimici, en zij die veel zweten bij het dansen hoeven slechts voor de basspeakers te gaan staan. Hij maakt bass, zoals hij zelf zegt. Nuff said, zeggen wij dan.

Trolley Snatcha

Trolley Snatcha
Trolley Snatcha is dubstep producer Zack Kemp from the UK. Currently releasing on Dub Police.

Stenchman

D1 is London based dubstep producer Dwayne Marsh. Son of 90s jungle producer Michael Anthony Marsh. He first appeared on the Tempa's Allstars Vol. 2 with the track "Crack Bong" in 2004. As of 2008, he has released a series of singles and appeared on many compilations, including Rinse Recordings' 'I Love Dubstep'. http://myspace.com/d1dj

Grimelock

Grimelock
GRIMELOCK have been steadily building a name for them throughout Europe as Belgium's finest bass music export.

Coming from the early Belgian jungle scene, Wallace and Kalib created Grimelock in 2004. MC's Maëlan and Dynamic joined the crew shortly after to fill the shows with their energy.

GRIMELOCK brings on stage a unique, explosive and fast-paced combination of dubstep, garage, electro and hip hop in which are blended own productions, exclusive dubplates and timeless classics. Add to this the raw live energy of the MC's and don't be surprised if you find yourself bouncing, sweating and screaming for more.

In 2008 they set up Stainage Records, a label aiming to promote Belgian productions worldwide. They were also responsible for the infamous Stainage parties that brought all the biggest dubstep names in Brussels ages before the hype.
