Fotosynthese (Nl, live)
De MC uit Breda is een begrip. Los van het feit dat zijn 101Barz-sessie meer dan een miljoen keer is bekeken, los van zijn Rookie Of The Year-nominatie bij de State Awards, los van het feit dat hij de jongste finalist ooit was in de categorie HipHop bij de Grote Prijs van Nederland!

Twee jonkies uit de UK scene. Experiment goes future!

Safi & Spreej - Team Panini - Pepe - Tiewai
Eigen Makelij Showcase!

Antwerpse hiphopcrew. Day In, Day Out is de mixtape - Hands on The Wheel en Higher Than The Sky zijn de youtube clips. Engels en Nederlands. Yo!

Brownz b2b Requake & MC Justizz

Na verschillende internationale evenementen komt hij op 16 november naar Belgie om in Petrol de Bass Circus room te versterken!

Stan SB (UK, live)
Next level popshizzle: hyper- en melodische dance/dnb/dubstep/breaks. Drie jongen gasten; electronica, drum & gitaar.

Memro (UK)
Had amper een baard in de keel toen een van zijn nummers al op BBC werd gedraaid. Intussen een paar jaar ouder en helemaal loos into liquid dnb.

DnB producer/DJ uit Londen en medebaas van Regal Records. Zijn eigen tracks kregen support van Andy C, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Friction, Danny Byrd, Culture Shock, Cyantific, Wilkinson etc.

Hookerz & MC Nice
Hookerz is een van de meest gereputeerde underground drum'n'bass DJ's uit het Gentse nachtleven en de drijvende kracht achter de STEAM feestjes in de Gentse club Decadance.

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.

Turntable Dubbers Night: Jstar, Sabo, Buscemi, ...
Een nieuwe editie van de Turntable Dubbers night out!

Jstar (uk)
De Britse Jstar staat er om bekend om veel verschillende genres te spelen in zijn sets. Zo gaat hij moeiteloos langs drum 'n bass, dancehall, moombahton, dubstep, reggae, 60's en 90's R&B en eigenlijk nog veel meer. Mashup style!
Check zijn soundcloud

Sabo (usa)
Deze Amerikaan gaat al meer dan 10 jaar mee in muziekland en heeft al heel wat op zijn naam staan. De constante: funky feel good bass music! Moombah-mashup! Is de jongste 12 jaar residents in de New Yorkse clubs Bembe, The Standard Hotel, Submercer, Sweet n Low en Nublu én heeft hij een maandelijkse radioshow bij Global Beats. soundcloud

Buscemi ft. Squadra Bossa
De heetste der Belgische DJ's - en zelf ook auteur van een extra large cocktail van warmbloedige nummers. Bossa, lounge, house, Brazilian grooves, afrobeat, drum 'n' bass, balkan & latin. Midden april verscheen zijn nieuw album Nite People. Intussen blijft hij de wereld rondvliegen om platen te draaien. Deze keer landt hij dicht bij huis en brengt hij zijn vrienden van Squadra Bossa mee voor een extra hete avond!

Turntable Dubbers
Timaxx en Drezz weten hoe het werkt! Ze mixen een hele lijst aan stijlen aan elkaar en zorgen dat je geen moment hoeft stil te staan. Reggae, hiphop, dubstep, d&b, mash-ups, tropical beats en rampetampende beats van Turntable Dubbers!

CRESST invites ZARDONIC, MAZTEK, ...
Op deze editie combineert Cresst de nieuwe badass DJ's en producers (zij die nog niet vaak in België hebben gespeeld) met een aantal meer gevestigde d'n'b artiesten. De line-up vertrekt van de pumping crunchy neuro sound en evolueert in de loop van de nacht tot darkstep en crossbreed Cresst style!

Daarbij komt nog een all Belgian room: een zaal waarin het bewijs geleverd wordt dat België niet langer alleen een topland is voor d'n'b concepten, maar dat we stilaan ook op het vlak van producing & DJ'ing volwaardig lid zijn van The Major League van Grote Jongens.

BREAK (UK) (Symmetry Recordings)
Zijn unieke kijk op DnB is synoniem aan twisted bass lines en harde bas, en wat Break verspreid over een niets vermoedend publiek sinds 2001.
Begonnen bij A-Sides 'Eastside' label, en gegroeid tot samenwerkingen met de grootste labels in de scene, onder wie Ram, Metalheadz, Shotgun, Exit, Critical, Soul:R, Quarantine, DNAudio, Subtitles en Digital Soundboy.

DOM & ROLAND (UK) (Dom&Roland Productions, Moving Shadow)
Mensen die houden van DnB, houden zeker ook van Dom&Roland. Ze zijn al sinds het begin aanwezig in de scene, maar Dom staat tot op de dag van vandaag als voorman in ontwikkelingen en als hoogtepunt in de scene. Zware mannen in aantocht!

ZARDONIC (VE) (Human Imprint, Freak)
Al met 16 jaar begon Zardinic te produceren onder zijn heavy metal naam Gorepriest, en twee jaar later verdiende hij al een Best Keyboardist award bij de Premios Metal Hecho in Venezuela (Metal Made in Venezuela Awards 2002-2003). Dit bezorgde hem een duidelijke plaats aan de top Venezolaanse metal scene. Zijn grote kennis van de wereld en culturele achtergrond is misschien wel de sleutel naar zijn perfectie. Deze wil je niet missen.

MAZTEK (IT) (Renegade Hardware, Subculture, Contaminated)
Geboren en getogen in het hart van Italië, Rome, werd hij op 18 jarige leeftijd gefascineerd door elektronische muziek, en dan vooral Techno en Drum en Bass. Hij besloot een sprong te wagen in het diepe en begon met het produceren van niet alleen Drum en Bass, maar ook Electro, Grime en Dubstep en speelde daarmee in de Italiaanse underground scene. Meedogenloze Drum en Bass komen naar je toe!

NEONLIGHT (GER) (Bad Taste, Red light)
Neonlight representeert de samenwerking van twee totaal verschillende persoonlijkheden die een ding met elkaar gemeen hebben: een passie voor Drum en Bass. Altijd op zoek naar een beter geluid en een volleerde samenstelling van elk apart bedachte nummer. Zonder van te voren grenzen te bepalen gaan ze door tot alles perfect samen valt en ze tevreden zijn met het eindresultaat van een stukje goeie muziek.

THRASHER (NL) (PRSPCT)
Goeie vriend en professionele badman, de eigenaar van het beruchte RRSPCT label zal zorgen voor een stevige Drum en Bass set, die er voor zorgt dat je tevreden naar huis kunt.

In de All Belgian Room spelen WASP, SPEEDWAGON, EXISTH, TESLA, RULO,
THE NITWITS, PUKAZ, AIR CAV, DOUBLE:MAYHEM
en MR. ORANGE.
Support your local hard(core) d'n'b scene!

Turntable Dubbers: Shepdog, Serial Killaz, ...
Een nieuwe editie van de Turntable Dubbers night out: Nice Up edition! Wij staan al klaar om nog harder te gaan dan vorige keer, want...

Shepdog (UK)
DJ Shepdog is er klaar voor! Deze DJ, mashupper en Nice Up labelbaas is schaamteloos in zijn doen en laten, maar geweldig in wat hij het liefst doet: zijn publiek een geweldige avond bezorgen. Met zijn vette dancehall, london bass en reggaebeats zet hij de club ondersteboven.
Broek uit of aan, het kan alleen maar mooi worden!



Serial Killaz (UK)
Jong jungle en drum'n'bass duo met een aparte maar zwaar aanstekelijke stijl. Komt dat zien!

Turntable Dubbers ft Mc Fragga
Als het een soortement tobacco was, dan zouden The Turntables Dubbers in de sigarenwinkel op het schap van het goei poeier liggen. Reggae, hiphop, dubstep, d&b, mash-ups, tropical beats en rampetampende beats. 'Uptempo Irie', zoals Turntable Dubbers Timaxx & Drezz het zelf zeggen. Ze scheppen er een heidens plezier in om genres aan elkaar te linken en te combineren. Ze doen dat als geen ander en steeds met een stomend supersonisch resultaat. Them Dubbbers!

King DJ aka DJ 4T4
We kennen hem natuurlijk als één van de drie helden van 't Hof van Commerce (4T4), maar ook als King DJ zal iedereen van ons al meer dan eens aan de lijve ondervonden hebben dat hij een vakman is die als geen ander de massa in beweging krijgt en houdt. Hij valt niet vast te pinnen op één stijl of truucje, past zich aan elke situatie aan en kan daar zeer breed in gaan zonder ooit voorspelbaar te worden. En dat natuurlijk allemaal perfect aan elkaar gemixt, want 's mans technische capaciteiten en ervaring zijn top.

One Year of City Flow Music
Na een jaar van feestjes op verschillende plaatsen in Antwerpen viert City Flow hun eenjarig bestaan.

Op dit verjaardagsfeest komt het overgrote deel van het dnb-spectrum aan bod, maar er is ook plaats voor dub, jungle, dubstep & core.











Area 1 - Main Room
Meer dan ooit brengt City Flow het zwarte, explosievere kantje van drum&bass naar boven met oa Shogun legendes als Alix Perez (van eigen bodem) & Spectrasoul. Daarnaast komen Britse dancefloor heroes Heist en Erb n Dub je overvallen met hun nieuwste bombs, dubs & smashers. Dit alles ingeleid door Brusselse Orphans & productietalent Bluemotion. Ook zijn City Flow founders Gunman & Judah zeer blij om de nieuwe officiële City Flow Residents voor te stellen, labelowners van G13 & Smokecreen, oh yeah: Rowney & Propz!

Area 2 - Horny Room
Een zeer gevarieerde internationale selectie van dubstep, core, jungle, techno, minimal & grime vullen de Horny Room op deze verjaardag met helden als Bong-Ra, Schall & Rauch en Bun Zero.
P Mero zal openen, gevolgd door Journey & Geeks en dubsteptalent Antics.

De Nederlandse hiphoprevelatie DOPE D.O.D. komt vrijdag naar Petrol.
Hun zieke rhymes en harde grime beats doen het goed tot ver buiten de Nederlandsgrenzen (voertaal is English) en met hun single 'What Happened' hebben zij een vette videoclip én een youtubehit te pakken. Crrrazy shizzle!

Planet Mu Footwork/Juke tour!
Juke: een nieuwe stroming met eigen dans & muziek die uit de Chicago ghetto house en booty scene komt. Juke wordt wel eens het Amerikaanse antwoord op (Europese) dubstep genoemd.
Juke is al een poos het populairste genre in de clubs in Chicago en sinds Planet Mu vorig jaar een Juke-compilatie uitbracht wint het genre en de bijbehorende dansstijl (Footwork) via de Britse dubstep & UK-Funky dj's ook steeds meer aan populariteit in de rest van Europa.

Furthur en Petrol halen de Planet Mu Footwork/Juke Tour naar Antwerpen: DJ RASHAD (USA, Planet Mu, Juke Traxx, Ghettophiles), DJ SPINN (USA, Planet Mu, Juke Traxx, Ghetto Teknitianz) en CHRISSY MURDERBOT (USA, Planet Mu).

Area 1 - Main Room

Hard-step en dark-step door Limewax (Ukr), die in Petrol zijn allereerste liveset ooit komt spelen. PRSPCT labelbaas Mr Prospect (Nl) aka Trasher mixt hardcore, drum'n'bass en darkstep. The Panacea (Ger) heeft niet alleen een zeer explosieve sound van hardcore techno, drum'n'bass, jungle en industrial, de man is ook het zien waard.
Cooh (Bul) heeft op zijn 28e al 42 vinyl en 12 cd-releases op zijn naam. In Area 1 geeft hij eerst zijn innerlijke demonen vrij spel, daarna treedt hij in de dubstep Area 2 nog op onder zijn "rustiger" Balkansky alias. En er zijn nog meer geweldplegers in Area 1: The Sect (UK), Counterstrike (Cz), Dub Elements (Sp), Wasp en Pukaz!

Area 2 - Horny Room

Die bass moet je niet horen, die bass moet je voelen!
Broke Note (UK) is 'raised on a diet of pure filth' en komt voor een live set. 'The darkest, most frightening tunes that have ever found their way onto vinyl'. BAM!
Bong-Ra (Nl) is een Nederlandse breakcore legende die op deze avond een dubstep set speelt met crossovers naar metal, gabber, jazz, rave en jungle. (ja, wij zijn ook benieuwd...). More bass? More bass! Daar zorgen nog Nicon, Syndaesia, Digid, Mesca en Balkansky (Bul) voor.

De Nederlanders van Black Sun Empire waren al eens te gast in Petrol. Deze keer brengen ze nieuw materiaal van hun Lights and Wires sampler mee. Dutch&bass!
Dubstep in Petrol betekent ook: Murdock! Uit respect stellen we hem niet nog eens aan jullie voor ;-)
Ook uit Antwerpen is Sub-Skit: een beloftevolle (vrouwelijke) dubstep en d&b dj die stilaan ook de eerste productie- en remixstappen zet. Female partytune selection & silky skills!

City Flow dubstep room
Phaeleh (UK) is een klassiek geschoolde muzikant die in 2006 werd gebeten door het dubstepmonster. Diepe dubstep met veel emotie en de juiste sfeer. Support van ondermeer Skream, N-Type, Scuba en Kryptic Minds. Gewoon geil!

Nog op de affiche staan Science en Gaz, die respectievelijk Antwerpen (oa Soulblazers) en Gent (oa Rotation & 10 days off) vertegenwoordigen.

Vaste Cityflowers Judah & Gunman draaien ook. Ze zijn drijvende krachten achter het City Flow concept én mixen voor afterdarkradio. Zij brengen Journey mee: een supercoole chick die er een zeer diepe, euh, platenselectie op nahoudt.

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.

Op 26 maart spelen dubsteppers Gaslamp Killer, Falty DL, Emalkay en Sbstrkt in Petrol. De Amerikaan Gaslamp Killer was een van dé sensaties van 2009 door zijn onvermoeibaar springen, dansen, zwaaien en schudden terwijl hij zijn dubstep afwisselt met rock, hiphop en electronica. Resultaat: een compromisloos dansbaar freaky feest, voor en achter de decks. Intussen is Gaslamp Killer als producer mee betrokken in het fantastische Gonjasufi project. FaltyDL releaset op Ramp en Planet Mu en speelde vroeger bas in een jazzgroep. Zijn experimentele dubstep album van vorig jaar, Love Is A Liability, is een verzameling nostalgische tracks met invloeden uit de hiphop, garage, soul, jungle en electronica. Emalkay mag na een geslaagd Petroldebuut vorig jaar terugkomen, terwijl de gemaskerde Sbtrkt komt bewijzen waarom Basement Jaxx, Mary Anne Hobbs, Franz Ferdinand en Gilles Peterson wild van hem zijn.

Op vrijdag 5 februari speelt Netsky in Petrol, samen met oa dj Die (van de Reprazent/Full Cycle crew) en Syndaesia: een jonge Belgische dubsteproducer die een track van Wu-Tang Clan mocht remixen, een producerscontest won bij Switch op Stubru en de verwachtingen bijgevolg hoog heeft gespannen.

Jackmaster

Jackmaster
1/6 van de Numbers crew en samen met Spencer wellicht de belangrijkste trekker van het label. Jackmaster begon op zijn 14e te werken in een platenwinkel in Glasgow (in maart dit jaar kondigde hij aan dat hij zijn hele privécollectie zal verkopen via Discogs!): stad van Soma en Optimo, maar de laatste 10-12 jaar ook Numbers. Eerst als club, en -dit jaar viert Numbers zijn 10e verjaardag- dan ook als label. Dankzij het internationale succes van lokale helden Hudson Mohawke en Rustie staat de Schotse stad sindsdien fier te shinen. In het midden van die scene: Jackmaster - die samen met Spencer, Deadboy, Rustie, Redinho en Sophie het Numbers team vormt. Op het label verschijnt de muziek van de net genoemde namen, maar ook tunes van Mosca en Jamie XX.
Wat Jackmaster zo speciaal maakt in de hedendaagse DJ scene is dat hij naam en faam maakt zonder eigen nummers. Jackmaster is een party DJ met eclectische elektronische muziek. Techno, house, disco, dubstep en pop: oud en nieuw. Jackmaster is veelzijdig en speelt voor zijn publiek. Hij maakte mixes voor Resident Advisor en FabricLive, heeft een wekelijkse radioshow op Rinse FM en is regelmatig te horen op BBC Radio 1.

Wat kunnen we van dit opkomend talent verwachten? fluwelen mixes met reggae invloeden en een ongeziene drive achter de draaitafels. Feest verzekerd!

Elliot Berger

Elliot Berger
Elliot Berger (formally known as 'System') is one of the most prominent underground producers in the UK. Starting from the age of 6, he began practicing violin, and from there he moved to guitar at the age of 12. Growing up in England, he had already begun to receive some recognition for his music, and in 2010 he began to train himself as a DJ. From there he learned to produce both dubstep and DnB. On top of this music production, System also had a history of playing in rock bands, and working with other vocalists. He feels that his real influences have been Rameses B, Skrillex, Adventure Club and Feint.

Jayglo

Jayglo
Residing in Bristol, Jayglo has been quickly making waves with his unmistakable style, spanning from Dubstep to Hip Hop and everything in between.
Often amalgamating retro funk influences and contemporary production techniques, Jayglo has sculpted a unique sound to stand out from the crowd.
His first release Wiseau Funk & Glo Worm (Boka) received support from a wide range of names including Diplo, Mistajam, Krafty Kuts, Foreign Beggars, TC and 16bit; proving his versatility on the dance floor.
Described as Herbie Hancock after a squat rave - his tunes exhibit throwback synth melodies with up front party energy.
Being touted as one to watch for 2011 and beyond, his sets are as versatile as his production - fusing Dubstep, Hip hop, Future Funk and always bringing a surprise element to the dance.

"I started producing long before i heard of dubstep.
Well it was more like experimenting then the actual producing. This was in fruity loops.

I discovered dubstep in it's first fase. "The good old days".
Artists like Loefah , Skream , Benga ,Plastician ,... from that moment on would daily blast trough my speakers.
I just fell in love with the subfrequencies and mindblowing atmospheres.

It was then when i bought my first 2 vinyl decks and a mixer and started mixing. When i got sucked more and more into dubstep ,i got myself reason and started to create some things myself.

These days i moved on to cd decks, got better monitors then before and still working in reason 5."

Cluekid has collaborated with Skream on 'Sandsnake' to debut Skream's own imprint 'Disfigured Dubz', aswell as Cotti with 'Sensi Dub' and 'Legacy'...." :(Soul Jazz Records Review, 2009)

RECENT REVIEWS Ld Vs Cluekid - Jay's Reese "Ruuudebwoy anthem alert!!! Two of dubstep's finest go toe-2-toe on a pair of rinsers with a proper 'ardcore attitude. 'Jay's Reese' is as simple, yet deadly effective, as they come, using a swollen beast of a Reese bassline and slashing breakbeat edits to rule the 'floor for six solid minutes. On the flip 'The Intro' turns again to London hardcore jungle circa '94 for a more stepping pattern with potent bassline spillage and the sort of ultra-precise drum finish that you'd expect from cats of this calibre. A reet shockah, get on this!"- (BoomKat Records 2010)

Bekend van zijn samenwerkingen met onder meer Skream en Kromestar om er nog maar enkele te noemen en natuurlijk ook zijn eigen label: Bullfrog Beats.

Koan Sound

Koan Sound
It's strange how the death of one musical group can be exactly the sort of catalyst needed to spawn another. KOAN Sound are certainly a highly gifted example of this phenomenon. It was in 2008 that KOAN Sound emerged from the ashes of several other musical endeavours, fusing passion for electronic music with sheer musical intuition. Since then KOAN Sound have continued to develop, synthesising ever more complex and inspirational patterns. And with influences such as The Prodigy, Amon Tobin and Noisia, it's not hard to see why KOAN Sound productions are synonymous with dark gripping basslines; elegantly mastered and meticulously executed.

Support is nothing but exponential for KOAN Sound. The group's creative and above all original ethos has granted them well deserved credibility from producers, DJ and Music fans alike. These include the likes of Aphex Twin, Pendulum, Zane Lowe and Rusko. Armed with a creative diversity second to none, they have set themselves apart from their peers and continue to push music not restrained by tempo or genre, all connected by their trademark 'KOAN' sound.

The Prototypes

With a trademark big room sound support for The Prototypes has come from all areas including Andy C, Friction, Sub Focus, Roni Size, Fresh, Pendulum and more. Off to a great start they were recently announced as one of ATM magazine's 2010 'Leaders of the Nu-Skool' and are proud to have hosted a UKF podcast that's reached a phenomenal 250,000 downloads and counting.

Their infectious track 'Cascade' has brought them massive Radio 1 support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Nightingale, Annie Mac, Fabio & Grooverider and had also earned them a highly acclaimed mini-mix as part of Jaguar Skills' 'Jag Fest'. All this plus forthcoming remixes on Ninja Tune and Sony BMG, the boys are demonstrating serious versatility.

Sitting amongst the Shogun camp, The Prototypes will no doubt bring a different angle to the current spectrum and are a welcome addition to the Shogun family. Interesting things to come from these ones; be prepared for some fatal releases, and even an LP in the near future.

Cyrus

Cyrus
A veteran of the dubstep scene since it's inception in early 2003, you couldn't get better credentials for being a dubstep legend than Cyrus. Born and raised in the home of dubstep, Croydon (UK), home to fellow pioneers Skream, Benny ill and Benga. Indeed his story is almost identikit to his peers; djing drum and bass and then garage, honing his skills on pirate radio and local club residencies, t...he then 18-year-old got hooked on making music and had early success drawing major label interest. From there, Cyrus decided to shun the expensive professional route realizing he could get his own unique sound with a DIY set up. In 2003/ 04 with limited places to release his dark, brooding, boundary pushing take on UK Garage, Cyrus started his Random Trio Production imprint and launched the Lost City Ep, a track Hyperdub head honcho, Kode 9, battered at dubstep institution Forward. Having found a sound he could call his own, Cyrus's perseverance paid off landing a regular slot on legendary pirate Rinse FM in 2004, and alongside Hatcha and Kode 9, was one of the only DJ pushing the dubstep sound. Perfectly placed, there was no shortage of interest in his sound. Cyrus's brutally minimalistic, hypnotic and cavernous sound is beautifully captured on his critically acclaimed album From The Shadows on Pinch's Tectonic label. Further releases with Chestplate and Deep medi have helped to cement his reputation as a key producer. And, It was no surprise when one of his more cinematic tracks featured in a major film. Indian Stomp appeared alongside Digital Mystikz and Kode 9, and also rather impressively, John Lennon, on the soundtrack for Children of Men. "The track was originally to be used in a hit US TV show, so to be told it was gonna be used in a blockbuster film was surreal." A main fixture at all the top dubstep nights - DMZ, Sub Dub, FWD - Cyrus has also DJ'd the world, from America to New zealand and all inbetween, the desire for his sub atomic bass weight is constantly in demand. In August 2008, he was asked to be part of Mary Anne Hobbs prestigious Generation Bass show on international BBC Radio One, a vital and important platform for dubstep. So, what's next for Cyrus? As well as starting a brand new label to release brand new talent and a few better known faces, he is starting work on a new album after the lengthy construction of a new studio and hopes to continue being allowed to push his sound to as many new ears as possible.

Bong-Ra

Bong-Ra
That is correct. Bong-Ra! His style contains a variety of crossovers and fusions of different genres, including metal, gabba, jazz, rave and jungle, making him one of the front runners of the breakcore genre.

Bong-Ra, Jason Köhnen's electronic alter ego saw life in 1996. Hailing from The Netherlands, Bong-Ra initially started as a dj, but quickly focused his priority on producing his own music in 1997.

Djax Records signed Bong-Ra in 1998, proceeding to release the debut album 'New Millennium Dreadz' and the 12-inch series 'Darkbreaks' Volumes 1 and 2. Bong-Ra at that time was accompanied by MC Guzman on vocals.

In 2001 Clash Records (a hardcore jungle orientated 7-inch label) was set up. In that same year John Peel invited Bong-Ra to do a 'Peel Session' which was released on UK label Death$ucker Records. Several vinyl releases followed in the period between 2001 and 2003.

From 2001 to 2004 the 'Breakcore a Go-Go!' parties were run and organised by FFF and Bong-Ra becoming one of the first (bi) monthly regular Breakcore nights in Europe. 'Bikini Bandits, Kill! Kill! Kill!' the second full length album was released in 2003 on Supertracks Records. This album saw an audiovisual co-operation with US based film company Gyromart. The track '666MPH' was used on the Bikini Bandits DVD and the videoclip to '666MPH' aired on MTV. The Bikini Bandits audiovisual project became an exposition in the Museum of Modern Arts in Arnhem, The Netherlands. That year Bong-Ra also appeared on some of Holland's biggest Festivals : Lowlands, Metropolis and Eurosonic. Also a small UK tour with DJ Scud and Soundmurderer followed.

In 2004 Bong-Ra set up his second label Kriss Records, focussing on edgier breaks (mostly combining metal and breakbeats). That same year the Center for Electronic Music (CEM) in Amsterdam asked Bong-Ra to produce a special 4 track EP solely using vintage equipment in the CEM studios, resulting in the 'Colony of Electric Machines' EP on the Vynalogica label. The 'Monsters of Mash Up' European Tour in 2005 with Shitmat (UK) and Enduser (USA) and a Japanese Tour with Parasite (UK) was followed by the third full length 'I am the God of Hellfire' released on Very Friendly and Ad Noiseam and the jungle/raggacore CD compilation 'Warrior Sound' on Supertracks Records (NL).

In 2006 a special 4 track remix EP of Venetian Snares' 'Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett' and the debut of Bong-Ra's main side project The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble were released on Planet Mu (UK). The politically charged album 'Soldaat van Oranje' was released on Sublight Records (CAN). Bong-Ra returned for his second Lowlands Festival, becoming one of the highlights of the Festival (according to Dutch magazine OOR). A second European tour and split 12-inc with Enduser 'The Kill' and a memorable muddy Glastonbury Festival highlighted 2007.

After the succes of Glastonbury, continued 2007 working on a variety of side projects including ; Deathstorm (extreme hypergrind project with japanese noise / grind legend Maruosa). [artists]Glowstyx (90's rave revival album). white darkness (uberdoom combining funeral doom with classical music). The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (TKDE live improv sideproject). Köhnen vs Nottelman (improv hardcore electronica jazz core stuff).

2008 saw the legendary Bang Face Weekender take place, a festival with a legendary line up...a classic! The first Bong-Ra US Tour, and a return to the dutch Lowlands Festival.

Some of their recent and forthcoming releases can only very loosely be described as dubstep, with little in common with much of the scene's output. Instead they draw from the Sino-Rastafarian sound and heavy bass; but also combine this with more of the kind of dark and aggressive beats that can be found in breakcore and jungle.

Their drum & bass is similarly disturbingly brutal, with undulating beats and bass that are unashamed to draw from the darkly edgy sounds of gabber and techno. It delivers a rhythmic pounding that has set dance floors around the world on fire with its astonishing heaviness. The result is both at home in clubs and the vast expanse of a decaying urban warehouse, inspiring visions of a dark and techy future for their music. A description of one release was pegged as "The darkest, most frightening tunes that have ever found their way onto vinyl".

Their live sets are currently based around two laptops running Ableton Live, utilizing various midi controllers and FX running with on the spot warping, cueing and live key work. The content tends to be a mash up of everything from dark dubstep to hardtekno, the most evil drum & bass to hardcore; playing many of their own tunes but mixing these with music by those who they draw inspiration from. They are both diverse and interesting, as well as being guaranteed to be one of the highlights of any night at which they are playing.

Chrispy

Chrispy
Chrispy is a dubstep producer from North Wales, UK, born in 1991.
He has been producing dubstep since late 2008. In September 2009 he had his first release on Stupid Fly records and in late 2009 he was signed to 2 Much Bass Records with his first EP released at the start of 2010.

Sometimes age doesn't matter. Sometimes nothing really matters... except for eardestroying, murderously good tunes. And Chrispy has those in abundance! Ever since he created a series of remixes of some random pop tunes, everyone suddenly noticed Chrispy, and now everyone wants a piece of him. And rightly so.
With Borgore and about 4 million more fithlovers on his case, 2011 seems to become an outrageously big year for this young production genius. Expect a full length album, remixes for some very big names and collaborations with people outside of the dubstep scene, plus a world tour to celebrate it all.

Phaeleh

Phaeleh
Phaeleh - pronounced "Fella" In 2006, classically trained musician and electronic sound scientist Matt Preston was swept up in the wake of the Dubstep phenomenon. His diverse influences resulted in an equally diverse musical output, ranging from the euphoric heights of Nordic electronica through cinematic breakbeat to the depth charges of Dubstep.

Phaeleh's unique sound has garnered support from the scene's leading artists, including Skream, N-Type, Scuba, Distance, Kryptic Minds, Oris Jay, RSD and Jakes to name but a few, as well as radio support on BBC Radio 1, BBC Asian Network, BBC 6 Music and Kiss FM. This has helped Phaeleh to top the sales charts with releases on Surface Tension, Against the Grain & Urban Scrumping as well as future releases on Skream's Disfigured Dubz, N-Type's Wheel & Deal Records and label of the moment Black Box.

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.

Definately guys to keep an eye out for!

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.

Their first official release dropped on Reid Speeds' Play Me Records as a Beatport exclusive in January of 2010, containing the tracks, "See You" and "Angeldust" with official remixes by King from Las Vegas. Hulk has also recently launched their own record label, "BroTown Records" with the help of Symphonic Distribution. This new venture already has the scene begging for the slated releases to drop, with songs by Claw and Richie August along BroTown artists Vaski, Druley, Mark Instinct, Symbl and their own moniker Hulk. Get ready for the biggest bass in the game, as Hulk is here to SMASH! Claw emerged in Houston, Texas in 1999, at the age of 15. He was well-received from the start, making contacts with the local rave DJ's of the time. By the time he was 16, he was playing at some of Houston's bigger underground parties and weekly events. After graduating high school, he moved to Florida to pursue music as a profession and began playing at weekly events. After finishing his music engineering studies at Fullsail in Orlando, Claw made his way across New York working at numerous studios with various engineers and producers. He then moved to Las Vegas to pursue his record label with Trillbass, which he co-founded. Claw also just did an official Dubstep remix for Wu-Tang that debuted at # 7 on the ITunes Hip Hop chart, and is currently back living in NY to run his art gallery and record label ventures. Richie August started out mixing Drum & Bass and Hip Hop in the south-side of Chicago in 1998. He began producing his own tracks in 2000, alongside Chicago Hip Hop artist, "Skope The Lyrical MC". In early 2008, Richie got his first taste of dubstep and It didn't take him long before he was refining his sound and signing his first EP of tracks to Betamorph Recordings. The Death Proof EP came out and solidified Richie and his unique blend of teeth rattling bass and Hip Hop edge in the Dubstep community. As soon as you hear a new Richie August tune, you know it's his. Since then, he's been making dancefloor smashing hits, remixing, collaborating, and is up to over 15 releases on various labels, with no slowing down in sight.

Raffertie

Raffertie
Benjamin Stefanski aka Raffertie has never been one to be tied down to any particular genre or scene. He has experimented with numerous styles, displaying the depth and sophistication of his production skill across releases for Planet Mu, Black Acre and Super for which he has received accolades from the likes of Simon Reynolds, Huw Stephens and Mary Anne Hobbes who first championed Raffertie on her BBC Radio 1 Experimental show in 2008.

Recognised both as an innovative producer and stand out DJ, the young talent has a reputation for performances filled with his typical dynamic energy that has seen him play across Europe; from Fabric to Space, Ibiza.

Graduating in 2010 with a degree in Classical Music Composition Raffertie spent the summer refining the next stage in his continuing stylistic progression. His new productions display newfound maturity whilst keeping the nuances and character that mark him out as a true individual.

Raffertie will release his debut artist album on Ninja Tune in early 2012. Probing and exploring the recesses of his soundworld like never before it will be a body of work that will expand the way we think about electronic music from then on.


Hailing from the south coast and now based in Birmingham, Raffertie is the 21 year old DJ and producer whose innovative and down right filthy style has been smashing up the UK's underground dance music scene for the last couple of years. Playing high energy, bass laden tunes Raffertie has quickly became a firm party favourite across the UK. His sets include everything from uplifting pop classics and 90's rave anthems to the filthiest house, garage, grime and dubstep tracks, creating huge dance floor reactions that earned him a residency at Hold Tight in London. Alongside his DJing exploits, Raffertie's productions have received much acclaim. Following a set of renowned bootlegs that ply all manner of tunes with sickening wonky basslines, it was his original productions that caught the attention of some big names. With Starkey championing the twisted rumbling monster 'ANTISOCIAL' on his Sub.FM show, Radio1's own Mary Anne Hobbs picked up the distorted, devastating beats of 'Stomping Grounds VIP'. She was so impressed that she invited Raffertie to do a guest mix as part of her showcase of up and coming talent, describing him as "as sick as they come". Raffertie MySpace

Drop The Lime

Drop The Lime
Everyone comes from somewhere, but some people wear the cities they're from like badges of honour. Drop the Lime is Luca Venezia, one of those people whose identity is intrinsically connected to his hometown New York City.

And while many have only just heard of the magic of Drop The Lime, Luca has been honing his craft for years. From humble beginnings as a choirboy to a childhood obsession with 50s rock n roll, the 25 year old has been experimenting with sound for years via the underground electronic scene of Kid 60's TigerBeat6 label, Mad Decent and French label Institubes (under his alter ego Curses!).

Emalkay

Emalkay
With initial support in the form of grime veteran Plastician, Birminghams finest. Emalkay gained the attention of South London based label Boka Records with the warped, future bass drones and epic strings of Gut Feeling. Continuing the success, Testing The Waters EP was released in October 2006 followed by Monsters in June 2007. The revolutionary sound of Mecha, released in the fall of 2007, gained Emalkay support from the likes of Radio 1 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs and breakbeat pioneer FreQ Nasty, as well as many of the leading figures of the current dubstep scene. It seemed Emalkays own potential as a pivotal dubstep artist was finally being realised. His final release on Boka Records was the reggae influenced My Story in April 2008. In the fall of 2008, Emalkay produced Explicit - a tune that gradually captured the interest of such prominent dubsteppers as Benga and received major support from acts such as The Scratch Perverts and drum and bass duo Chase and Status. After being approached by Caspa however, the track was finally released on the Dub Police label in February 2009 after much anticipation. For more information visit www.myspace.com/emalkay

Gaslamp Killer

Gaslamp Killer
The Gaslamp Killer is a Los Angeles-based DJ whose eclectic style ranges from psychedelia and world music to dubstep and left-field hip-hop. Associated with Flying LotusBrainfeeder Records, he made his production debut in the late 2000s with a series of EPs. Born William Benjamin Bensussen, he originally comes from San Diego, CA, whose downtown Gaslamp Districts bar scene inspired him to name himself the Gaslamp Killer in disgust for much of the patronage. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, he found a niche for himself amid the citys massive underground party scene and ultimately found a home for himself as a resident DJ at the club Low End Theory, which resulted in a series of club-sponsored podcasts. He also released a series of mix CDs, among them Gaslamp Killers (2007), Its a Rocky Road (2007), I Spit on Your Grave (2008), Hell and the Lake of Fire Are Waiting for You! (2009), and All Killer (2009), the latter a label showcase for the London-based world psychedelia imprint Finders Keepers Records. As a producer, the Gaslamp Killer made his debut in the late 2000s, releasing, for instance, a split single with Free the Robots, The Killer Robots,n Obey Records in 2008 and an EP, My Troubled Mind, on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder Records in 2009.

Vyron is 19 years old and started mixing since 2007. It all happened in the summer of 2004, where he heared Drum&Bass for the first time. He became really obsessed with the music, the more tracks and mixes he listened to, the more he got passioned with this genre. One year later he decided to take a fresh step in the music and nightlife scene and bought a pair of turntables, and started mixing as Vyron. From that day on, he is non stop mixing inside and outdoors. One year later around May 2008 he launched his own Drum&Bass concept called Burnout, this gig took place in CPO in Ostend. DJ's which were invited for making the party complete were NDM, Kaytodad, Muevete, Paranoized, Scypus b2b Vicelord & MC Mush. But the biggest change for Vyron started in beginning of 2008, where he discovered a new kind of music which is called Dubstep. It had an unique tempo and energy, which became addictive for listening to. Starting with checking some tunes of Burial, Benga, Caspa, Skream and lots more, to attending big dubstep parties hosted by legends such as Joker, Plastician, Grimelock, Rusko.. He finally found his true destination. Later that year Vyron decided to let the Drum&Bass scene behind him so he could completely focus on the sounds of dubstep. Later on he started producing on FL9 to sort out his own music, mostly in collaboration with his good friend Devnik. He also joined the Artificial VZW Crew and is now one of the organizers of the leading gig called Bassix, with this opportunity he also became resident DJ on all the editions that will be organised by Artifical. At the end of 2009 Vyron gets signed by Dubline Audio for the collab tune he made together with Devnik called World Of Fear, which will be released on vinyl around March 2010 as the backside of the killer track The Village made by no one else than the allmighty Excision. Now Vyron is producing from day to day, creating sick beats hoping to get his tunes on the biggest labels. His tunes were supported by DJ's such as Afterdark, Itchy Robot, Devnik, Blaztik, Requake and lots more! Vyron played on events next to Limewax (CH), Proxima (NL), DJ Vapour (UK), June Miller (NL), Saviour, Crossfire, Cal & Sikey, One87, Science, Lady Vortex, Murdock, NDM, Marcas, Madruler, Lady Vortex, Tito & Echo Virus, Scypus, Bonafide, Mental Research, Slow Slage, Lady Lite, Etnik & Fuzz and many more..

Silkie

Silkie
Dubstep producer and DJ from West London. He released his debut LP City Limits Volume 1 in July 2009 on Deep Medi Musik, a dubstep label run by Mala of Digital Mystikz . He was personally chosen by Mala, along with collaborator Quest, to represent the growing global bass scene in Mary-Anne Hobbs live mix showcase Generation Bass in September 2008 on BBC Radio 1, two-and-a-half years after the seminal Dubstep Warz. It's fair to say the dubstep scene has splintered and refracted into myriad Sub(bass)styles over the last couple of years, but at the epicentre of the scene are a few artists who have maintained the original spirit of the style while alloying it successfully with influences that were always hovering on the edges, but never fully integrated. Silkie is one of those artists who's heated elements of deeper house and synth driven soul around the glowing core of DMZ's bassbins to create one of the lushest fusions in the scene. Boomkat, July 2009.
