Brookes Brothers
Brookes Brothers
One of the most respected production partnerships in Drum and Bass, the Brookes Brothers have become a formidable force across the bass music scene. Known for their unique, soul and disco infused beats, the Brookes Brothers are one of the genres most accomplished production teams.

Hailing from London, U.K., brothers Dan and Phil Brookes set about producing their first tracks together after their love of raving and dance music in general piqued their interest in music production.

With demos recorded, the duo sent a few tracks to the AIM address of drum'n'bass label Breakbeat Kaos -- owned by Adam F and Fresh -- and after receiving a good reception for the tracks, the duo ended up signing their first release, Someone, to Viper Recordings. With good connections built with Fresh, the brothers quickly signed material to Breakbeat Kaos and in 2006 released the 12" Hard Knocks on the label. Splitting their output between the two labels the duo went on to release a slew of 12"s and in 2008, the single Tear You Down helped push the duo's name to a wider audience.

The duo scaled to new heights with the seminal hit 'Tear You Down' in 2008. A blend of soulful vocals and funk infused bass, 'Tear You Down' spent 2 weeks atop the UK dance chart as well as 15 weeks in the top 20. Catching the attention of Sara Cox, who made it BBC Radio 1's "Record Of the Week", 'Tear You Down' underlined the duo's place in the upper echelons of DnB.

Continuing with their own brand of anthemic and soulful drum'n'bass, the brothers set about work on their debut album. The duo released their much anticipated self-titled LP in 2011, which showcased their unique, accomplished production style. Featuring classics such as the ethereal 'Last Night', dancefloor hit 'Beautiful' (featuring Robert Owens on vocals), as well as 'Paperchase' (a collaboration with Danny Byrd). The album also saw the act dabble in Dubstep, with the reggae tinged 'In Your Eyes' becoming the Brothers second track to be playlisted on Radio 1. With support from major radio DJs including Pete Tong and Zane Lowe, the album helped find the duo an ever-expanding audience.

Continuing their relationship with Viper and Breakbeat Kaos, the brothers continued to release 12" singles in between their ever-increasing DJ sets which also included a residency at London's Fabric night club. Now fresh from the BBC Radio 1 playlisted hit ‘Loveline’ released to wide acclaim on Breakbeat Kaos in late 2012, the legendary production team has signed exclusively to the label they started out with, Viper Recordings. The duo had started to record their sophomore album, which was slated for release in 2014.

With the track ‘Carry Me On’ (featuring Chrom3 on vocals) selected as “Hottest Record In The World” by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, and exciting collaborations in the works, including ‘Get On It’ with Danny Byrd from his forthcoming album ‘Golden Ticket’, the most exciting chapter so far for the Brookes Brothers is about to emerge.

Rene Lavice
Rene Lavice
BBC Radio 1 Presenter, Artist, DJ, Producer, Film maker, & Skateboard Enthusiast, Rene LaVice is a consummate artist, embracing creativity wherever he finds it and channelling his inspirations into five and a half minute pieces of brilliance. While to many he may be a new name Rene LaVice is without doubt one of the hottest drum & bass producers in the North American scene, having already amassed an impressive catalogue of music that has caught the attentions of BBC luminaries such as Nick Grimshaw, Crissy Criss and Bailey, as well as D&B figurehead and multi-award-winning DJ Andy C.
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Rene LaVice made his drum & bass debut in 2009 on Canadian label Stride Recordings. Infused with four tracks of early LaVice magic, ‘The Future’ EP promised great things, while subsequent singles, collaborations and remixes delivered on those promises and gained attention from record labels across North America and Europe.
His work with veteran producer and fellow Canadian Gremlinz led to remix work on Bad Concept Records and New World Ordio and a release on DSCi4's 'Amen Warfare' LP. This was swiftly followed by more local attention as another of Canada’s biggest exports, John Rolodex, took notice of Rene’s talent and recruited the budding newcomer as a key member and intricate part of his Machinist Music imprint.
As the buzz and hype about this exciting producer began to grow, tastemaker DJs began to regularly support Rene LaVice’s tracks in their sets. From DJ Marky and Sub Focus to Total Science, A Sides, Sigma and TC, the 175bpm elite began to push LaVice’s music and none so hard as Ram Records boss Andy C.
Rene LaVice’s Ram Records debut, ‘Headlock,’ was released on the ‘Dimensions 5’ EP, part of a series that showcases not only Ram’s commitment to diversity, but also to the freshest talent around. Lauded by the likes of Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1, ‘Headlock’ is a defining moment in LaVice’s musical career. A track that insists you take notice, simultaneously packed with subtle references to the golden era of drum & bass while sprinkled liberally with a fresh and exciting outlook on the music we all know and love.
Following the huge success of ‘Headlock,’ Ram Records offered Rene LaVice an exclusive recording contract which will see the young producer catapulted to the highest echelons of the D&B world. While the scene waits with baited breath for his follow up, you can be assured that this impressive and forward-thinking artist will not disappoint.
His work with veteran producer Gremlinz led to a release on Bad Concept Records, while the legendary John Rolodex quickly took notice and recruited the budding newcomer as a key member and intricate part of his Machinist Music imprint. It was around this time that his reputation as a fierce and fine producer made a sharp ascent with the support of Drum & Bass tastemakers from Bailey to Loxy, Marky to Sub Focus and even the mighty Andy C all regularly playing his music out in their sets both on tour and syndicated radio.

Riding the waves of a solid buzz both locally and globally, reputable labels like Rubik, New World Ordio, Dsci4 and Dylan's Freak Recordings scooped up music both already released and forthcoming from the artist touted as Canada's next big producer. Tracks like "Spile," "Just Words" and the massive hit "Headlock" have received rave reviews and given the world a glimpse at just how diverse LaVice's musical tastes and output really are. Expect a ton of new music and exciting collaborations in the very near future.

DJ NIGHTSTALKER
DJ NIGHTSTALKER
With his flawless technique and signature style behind the decks, DJ Nightstalker is a name that has become synonymous with dancefloor mayhem and West Coast junglism. Having earned his stripes in the underground drum & bass scene of Los Angeles in the late 1990s, DJ Nightstalker's role as a journalist for Knowledge Mag (UK) fame continues to earn him immeasurable recognition and respect worldwide.

It was this success as a music journalist for legendary mags like URB, XLR8R, Rinse, ATM, and Knowledge that DJ Nightstalker credits with helping launch his own career as a heavy-hitting DJ in his own right. In the same way that the name Chris Muniz came to be seen as an expert in global drum & bass culture, his pseudonym as DJ Nightstalker soon came to represent an unparalleled dancefloor experience that would soon propel him onto the national and international stage.

Originally paying his dues in the Los Angeles rave scene, DJ Nightstalker has fond memories of legendary L.A. underground venues like the Masterdome, Shaolin Temple and Stillwater Hotel. Even more important during these early years was the creation of his infamous Thursday night rinse-out Primordial on the now-defunct vibeflow.com. While it was definitely a space for local talent to represent, most heads tuned in to catch sets from the all-start cast of VIP players who would often drop by unannounced. Heavy-hitters like Pendulum, Klute, Photek, Panacea, DJ Rap, Pieter K, E-Sassin, John Tejada, and even non-d&b artists like Ron D. Core and Omar Santana would regularly roll through and flex their skills for the internet massive.

It wasn't long until DJ Nightstalker found his own skills as a DJ in high demand, unleashing his infectious energy and signature blend of high intensity drum & bass on dancefloors as varied as the legendary Desert Sound Coalition parties in the Mojave Desert on through to Club Yellow in Tokyo, Japan. Having headlined all across the United States as well as rocked crowds alongside the likes of Goldie, Ed Rush & Optical, Tech Itch, Dylan, SS, Dillinja, Lemon D, Roni Size, Marcus Intalex, Trace, Paradox, Jumping Jack Frost, Black Sun Empire, Mampi Swift, Friction, Hive, and Gridlok, DJ Nightstalker continues to be remembered for pushing audiences to the breaking point and transforming an average night out into a high-energy, mind-bending journey.

Fast-forward to 2014 and DJ Nightstalker returns to the decks after a short hiatus that finds him in the midst of a demanding PhD program. While he continues to seek out and profile the most talented producers across the planet in his senior role as Knowledge Mag writer and journalist, the time has come for DJ Nightstalker to once again transform into that dark figure of the night, ready to unleash the beats that will have crowds bouncing off the walls and climbing up the speakers begging for more.

Part entertainer, scholar and shaman, it should be obvious by now that the only way to truly understand the power DJ Nightstalker wields is to experience him live with a crowd of heaving bodies at your side.
