(Breakbeat Science | The Secret Night of Science | NYC)
Arriving in New York from London in '89, it could be argued that no one has done more for Drum & Bass in America than DB. First with his hardcore Breakbeat club NASA, (featured in the Larry Clark film Kids) then by launching Smi)e Communications and releasing the first Jungle singles & compilations in the US, as well as signing DJ Dara, thus kick starting his career. He & Dara then opened Breakbeat Science, dedicated to Drum & Bass, it quickly became not only the most respected record store & label, but also the very epicenter of the jungle community in the US. He recently released an artist project with partner Stakka under the name Ror-Shak, focusing & pushing the limits on the more musical side of the genre, which as a DJ, is what DB has become best loved for. "Secret Art of Science 2" is DB's 13th mix CD in as many years. He is also partner in both the cutting edge men's lifestyle shop BBlessing & the multimedia & record label Deaf Dumb & Blind Recordings. When he has a second to spare he spends it with his wife & two small children, or tries to sleep.
(Driven AM | Direct Drive | Taciturn)
This internationally recognized Dj and resident at Direct Drive has released records on Sony/Epic, Jungle Sky, Ultra Records, Caffeine, BreakBeatScience, Taciturn Records and Brooklyn Music Ltd. He has played top venues and clubs all over the world from Brazil to Amsterdam, as well as all over America. Datcyde has played along side all the major names in D+B such as Roni Size, Jumping Jack Frost, Bryan G, Mickey Finn, Grooverider, Bad Company, DJ Rap, Dara, DJ Hype, Aphrodite, Freaky Flow and many more. Datcyde's last release, which can be purchased on itunes and other online sites, was a second full-length album for Taciturn Records, entitled simply 'Theory'.
(Basswerk | Fokuz | Rubik | Bios | Sudden Def | NYC)
Many artists these days say they are doing "soulful" music, but really don't know what that entails. Soul is not revamping the sound Calibre or MIST perfected at the turn of the century. Soul is not looping random Al Green records and proclaiming the sound of the future. Soul, as in anything else, is a feeling, and it is embedded deeply within many of the tones that emit from Sol.ID's tracks. Little is known about this beast from Texas. The scant facts are as follows: he is a classically trained saxophonist and percussionist, and has a great appreciation for many different styles of music. Gaining much praise from a project entitled 'Autumn' (with production partner Lost Prophet), he stormed onto the scene, raking up a number of releases on Fokuz (and Fokuz LTD), including beauties like 'It's Always About The Girl', 'Yesterday' (a collaboration with ICR that was featured on the 'Discoveries Of The Deep' LP in 2006), and 'Redemption'.
100% Original Resident:
(Driven AM | Bingo Beats | Grid Recordings | Direct Drive | Influence | NYC)
Raw Q aka: Dj Beau is one of nyc's original drum 'n bass djs for 12 years and counting. He began producing back in '96 with Dj Ani (formerly of Deee-Lite) for DJ Soulslinger's Liquid Sky Music Label. In 2003 Dj Beau evolved into Raw Q. In the last few years Raw Q has released music on prestigious labels such as Zinc's Bingo Recordings, Grid Recordings and will soon be releasing 'Caspian Moon' on Aaron Jay's new Label Influence Records. His tracks have earned support from DnB's most respected djs and artists including LTJ Bukem, Zinc, Roni Size, Flight, Randall, Fabio, Bryan Gee, Bailey, Krust, Marky, Marcus Intalex, L Double and many more. His track 'Vital Soul' took the dnb world by storm when it first appeared on dubplate and managed to reach 11th place in the BBC's Global Dance Charts in 2004. Raw Q continues to dj as a resident of Direct Drive and as a frequent guest dj and supporter of Camouflage and other quality NYC DnB parties.
(Outside the Cube | Definition of Style | Liondub International | NYC)
Trigon is known for killin’ dance floors everywhere with his intense, quick mixing delivery style of B-boy Jungle/Drum’n’Bass. This selector is most definitely a staple to New York City's stomping grounds by way of Miami, FL. His musical influences of Funk, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae & Miami Bass reflect on his diverse and solid track selection on the decks and in the studio. Rinsing cutting-edge music from various producers including himself, Trigon rocks the party every time. Recently he has been in the studio focusing on production and collaborating with some of the freshest upcoming stateside talent. Trigon also co-hosts NYC's premier weekly internet drum'n'bass radio show Outside the Cube with DJ Eshin on Bassjunkees Radio. Forthcoming release on Liondub International and new label "Profound Audio" launching 2009, this man is definitely one to watch for.
