Born in Fiji, raised in New Zealand and forged in the dance music revolution of 90 s London, FreQ Nasty started his career in 1998 on the seminal UK label Botchit & Scarper, moving to SKINT Records in 2003. He went on to release a slew of cutting-edge records, collaborating with and remixing a diverse range of artists including Fatboy Slim, Kelis, KRS One, Roots Manuva, Rodney P, Bassnectar, and Reggae legend Junior Delgado.
James' first release happened thanks to a hook up with Dom Angus (Dom & Roland) though their parents who are friends and colleagues. The result was the 2004 'Vega EP' on Moving Shadow. It was well received but unfortunately the seminal label stopped releasing music and it was another two years before James found another home with the legendary Ram Records.
Impressed by the production skills displayed on the Vega EP, Andy C followed the progress of the young producer and ended up signing him to his label, with the first track 'The Bypass' appearing on 2006's Dimension EP and getting tongues wagging on the scene.
An-Ten-Nae is one of San Francisco's most sought after DJs and live performers. He has taken the art of live remixing to new heights with his own customized setup, that bends genres in ways seldom heard. This sound is called Acid Crunk and there are no rules, no restraints in its quest for pure dance floor devastation.
Besides DJ'ing and producing electronic music for over 10 years on a wide collection of esteemed labels, Adam Ohana has also been an instrumental part of the underground music culture in SF. From being the Music director at of San Francisco's largest Club venue 1015 Folsom, to his production company called An*Ten*Nae Presents. These events helped break a lot of artists in Bass oriented music on the west coast, including Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Rusko, Modeselektor and Tipper to name a few.
Dov is the person behind Muti Music, a selector at heart, compulsively picking tunes for record labels and for your dancing / listening pleasure.
He produces everything from Dubstep to various downtempo, midtempo and uptempo Breaks and also receiving accolades for collaborations with An-ten-nae and ill.Gates. His sound when performing represents that of a whole movement of young producers coming out on his Muti Music imprint and adds directions that you know are going to emerge more in the future.
A savage synth wizard and mad beat scientist who brings bass to life, Eprom infuses his music with such raw energy, sense of movement and love of the bounce that it almost becomes human. Named over and over by other top West Coast producers as an influence and inspiration, this respected San Francisco-based artist is making a profound impact on the evolution of modern sound.
Fusing psychedelic space machine murderation, polytemponic neurocrunk and heavy-handed pleasure, Eprom creates obese ogres of bass. His mutated music is so full and rounded that it is holographic; such a massive sound requires multiple dimensions to fully express its brilliant colors and diversely accumulated weight.
Vandal is an alias of Sheffield based DJ and producer Sam Evans, an alter ego that has spent the 11 years producing global underground anthems and vandalising dancefloors all over planet Earth. In Vandal Sam has created an electronic act that effortlessy fuses together various genres whilst still retaining his own unique sound. The praise and support for Vandal music over the years has come from some of the most important djs in dance music. The electronic loving public have shown serious love for the Vandal, resulting in tens of thousands of vinyl, cd and download sales and invites to dj in some of the most respected venues in club land and share bill with some of the biggest djs in the world.
