jonwayne is one of the newest members of Stones Throw's burgeoning roster of current LA talent. Making his name as a quirky beatsmith with records like Doodles (recently re-released as Oodles of Doodles), it was soon discovered his prowess on the mic was also somewhat elephantine, as evidenced here on the Quakers collaboration Smoke. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3EhoaHo-sM
This marks jonwayne's first visit to Australia and comes ahead of his debut LP for Stones Throw. Enjoy some flips of Disney soundtracks by the man while you wait. http://stonesthrow.com/news/2012/05/jonwayne-fucks-disney
Mono/Poly is a fellow Los Angelian whose beat work has graced such an impressive roster of labels like Warp, Planet Mu and Brainfeeder. His characteristically dark but funky beats have gathered support from the likes of Thom Yorke, Erykah Badu, Mary Anne Hobbs and Benji B and his ability to flip styles in such a way makes him one of the more revered characters in the Beat realm. His newest material is called Golden Skies and looks set to debut on Rodriguez Lopez Productions (The Mars Volta) in September.

"Kasra is a gatekeeper to what is under the surface in drum & bass. He does what he does with passion and care. He is a kindred spirit." Goldie, Metalheadz . As Critical's figurehead the demand for Kasra's DJ'ing skills has escalated to the point of a schedule that sees him playing regularly every weekend throughout the UK and rest of the world. Since his first forays into drum & bass in the late 1990's as a burgeoning young DJ, there's no doubt that Kasra has now made an indelible mark on the scene, a mark that continues to grow ever-stronger as his Critical Music empire prospers as one of the most inspiring imprints in dance music today.
Sabre Hails from North London, the 30 year old DJ turned Producer Gove Kidao has risen through the ranks of the global electronic music fraternity since his emergence back in 2002; Securing as he goes a reputation as a twisted yet soulful thinker, bringing a grittier sound to the deeper spectrum of Drum & Bass and experimental electronica.
