>>DEEKLINE & MC NAVIGATOR<<
>>MANZA & RANIMAL<<
>>>DEEKLINE & MC NAVIGATOR<<<
A bass music icon from the days of his Platinum-selling UK garage anthem I Don’t Smoke Da Reefer, Deekline is that rare figure in dance music, the seminal producer who balances the cutting edge and the mainstream with effortless flair. Up there with the busiest artists in the scene, the London-based producer releases music at a fever pitch, never letting genres define him. Deekline drops ghetto bass certified gems with the kind of assurance one might expect from a DJ who has sent bodies flying round the room at club venues across the globe for more than a decade.
Deekline splits his time between regular worldwide DJ tours, relentless production work and overseeing the five record labels he heads up: Hot Cakes, Jungle Cakes, Booty Breaks, Rat Records and Gutter Gutter, all of which work tirelessly to propel street level artists to the forefront of the electronic music scene.
A bonafide musical shapeshifter, his countless releases have erupted into both the underground and mainstream worlds, gaining support from the likes of Diplo, Craze, DJ Hype, Afrojack, Hannah Wants, Stanton Warriors, Plump DJs and Krafty Kuts and representing bass music in all its eclectic splendour; a melting pot of dubstep, UK funky, garage, bassline, dancehall and breakstep.
His back catalogue of collaborations illustrates incredible diversity, with artists such as Tim Healey, DJ Assault, Fast Eddie, Kid Sister and Freq Nasty having queued up to work alongside him over the years. Earlier in 2013 his 2-step-flavoured remix of Lethal Bizzle & Donae’o’s Not A Saint anthem he’s still in touch with his UK garage roots at a time when the sound has never been hotter.
Deekline’s Hot Cakes parties have achieved the rare feat of blowing up clubs on both sides of the Atlantic, in Miami, Spain and London, where his flagship night sits pretty at the heart of Brixton at iconic underground nightclub Jamm. In 2014 he expanded on that concept and took the circus on the road across the UK culminating in a rump shaking party on Thames, something this man is no stranger to.
Music aside, Deekline has been hard at work on The Bass Boutique, a creative music, fashion, art and lifestyle web outlet bringing together fashion from top designers as well as music chosen by the people that made it. His own clothing line, The Booty Farm, will also push forward this year with exclusive prints from the likes of Uncle Luke and more.
Fittingly for a producer whose Hot Cakes imprint has become a byword for bassbin-shaking bravado, this is one artist who’s cooking up a storm right now.
>>> NICKY BLACKMARKET<<<
British drum & bass icon Nicky Blackmarket is one of the most recognisable talents in all of underground electronic music. He is a pivotal figure who has been at the heart of his genre for many years and was a pioneer in the earliest days of jungle who has continued to showcase the genre to crowds around the world. It was aged just 14 way back in the eighties that Nicky started playing records. Initially mixing up electro, he moved on to house music, rave and much more on the booming London pirate scene, playing on various radio stations.
As a producer Nicky has turned out sporadic but essential tunes such as his Spam EP as Nicky OD, but primarily he has focussed on DJing. In his time he has showcased his skills on many official mix CDs for everyone from Azuli to Ministry of Sound and he also runs the label Kartoons, which put out his anthem ‘Two Degrees’. Still influenced by his mother’s jazz collection, Nicky has formed DJ partnerships with the likes of Clarky and Stevie Hyper D and recordings of some of their sets are still regarded as classic of the genre. Always playing high profile events, clubs and festivals all over the world, Nicky Blackmarket is very much an essential part of the global drum & bass scene.
Originally from Lincolnshire, Jamie found a musical home for the past six years in Leeds; with his main focus on honing 20s and 30s swing influences into House and Electro genres.
Jamie Berry is recognized for his musical couplet of shuffling modern beats and vintage swing sounds. His idiosyncratic sound piques your interest while his heavier wobble bass pushes things up a gear or two, continuously drawing people back to his music.
In only four short years, Jamie has made himself a popular name on this circuit, boasting home-grown tours in the UK – Beat-Herder Festival and Boom-Town Festival – and around the world, including regular dates in Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, and Canada.
