Twisted Audio and The MakeShift Collective are taking you on an adventure into the realm of silly, strange and twisted, and just like Alice, we want to get lost here in Underland. The Mad Hatters Tea Party will kick off outside with some tasty bass and hip hop beats, and we’ll delve deeper into The Rabbit Hole inside, where we’ll glitch our way into a drum and bass fueled adventure…

Matrix & Futurebound need no introduction, both having had illustrious careers in their own right, with Matrix first cracking the UK singles charts with ‘It’s Love Trippin’ way back in 2002 and Futurebound launching Viper Recordings in 2004, now recognized as one of the UK’s leading independent record labels and a true powerhouse in the bass music scene. Since the release of their ground-breaking debut album as a duo “Universal Truth” in 2007 they have reached a level of success matched by only a select few in the drum & bass world, with huge support from BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Capital FM, Ministry of Sound Radio & XFM of the back of their singles “All I Know” (#29 UK singles chart, 2012) “Magnetic Eyes” (#24 UK singles chart, 2013) and “Control” (#7 UK singles chart & #2 Dance chart, 2014). Major remix duty followed with Matrix & Futurebound remixing UK #1 single, Oliver Heldens x Becky Hill ‘Gecko’ (Overdrive) FFRR, Eric Prydz ‘Liberate (Virgin EMI), Seven Lions ‘Strangers’ (island/Universal) and Labrinth ‘Let It Be’ (Sony Records). Along with huge live shows at Creamfields, Global Gathering, Nocturnal Festival, Brixton Academy and more under their belt, the duo can also claim to be one of extremely small number of drum & bass artists to have played the iconic Stereonsonic festival in Australia 2013.


Nick & Garvey aka “The Prototypes” exploded onto the scene in 2010 there’s been no looking back for the Brighton-based duo and their polished brand of dancefloor-destroying drum & bass. Quickly becoming one of the most hotly-tipped production duos in the scene they’ve built a reputation for putting out instant dancefloor weapons and consistently smashing any and all remixes. Entering in to the next chapter of their careers The Prototypes signed with Viper Recordings and have just released their debut “City of Gold LP” firmly cementing their position in the highest tier of drum & bass. The future has never been brighter for one of the most exciting production outfits in recent years.


One of the most unique producers in the game, InsideInfo ranks alongside some of the most respected producers in the drum & bass scene. With a back catalogue featuring releases on the most prestigious labels in DnB, such as Viper, Virus, Metro, Critical, Blu Mar Ten, Hospital, Renegade Hardware and Ganja-Tek, InsideInfo has built up an enviable reputation for delivering the most distinctive, twisted funk in all of bass music.


Luka Per aka Smooth was introduced to music at the age of 10, when he began to practice piano. After practicing for 3 years and later on he became more interested in guitar, also in such genres as metal, hardcore etc. When a couple of years passed by he attended his first drum n bass party and he was hooked! Now ready to launch the next chapter of his career, Smooth has set his sights on working towards his debut album on Viper Recordings which will surely catapult him amongst the elite producers in drum and bass. Serving as the first album single, ‘Virgo Cluster’ is the perfect showcase of Smooth’s trademark anthemic dancefloor funk which he is becoming world renown for.

Bust a Move feat. Koan Sound & Culprate + More

Posted: Friday, June 12th, 2015


Twisted Audio and Whomp are proud to announce the return of non other than Koan Sound to Melbourne for the 3rd chapter of Bust A Move featuring:

Koan Sound (Owsla, UK)
Culprate (Inspected, UK)
Goosebumpz (Adapted Records, Addictech Records)

Friday 3rd of July @ Max Watts (Formally Hi Fi Bar)


Support: Kodiak Kid, Lickweed, Monkee

Koan Sound

t’s strange how the death of one musical group can be exactly the sort of catalyst needed to spawn another. KOAN Sound are certainly a highly gifted example of this phenomenon. It was in 2008 that KOAN Sound emerged from the ashes of several other musical endeavours, fusing passion for electronic music with sheer musical intuition. Since then KOAN Sound have continued to develop, synthesising ever more complex and inspirational patterns. And with influences such as The Prodigy, Amon Tobin and Noisia, it’s not hard to see why KOAN Sound productions are synonymous with dark gripping basslines; elegantly mastered and meticulously executed.

Support is nothing but exponential for KOAN Sound. The group’s creative and above all original ethos has granted them well deserved credibility from producers, DJ and music fans alike. These include Aphex Twin, Pendulum, Zane Lowe and Rusko. Armed with a creative diversity second to none, they have set themselves apart from their peers and continue to push music not restrained by tempo or genre, all connected by their trademark ‘KOAN’ sound.

Keep your ears to the ground: KOAN Sound have arrived.


Culprate’s musical intuition started at the age of just 13 when he decided to learn the guitar. By the age of 15, Culprate’s passion and creativity really came into bloom as he was introduced to electronic music, and of course how to produce it, at college. From then on it was simply a matter of time before his driven persona and growing production skills resulted in mind blowing anthems, tearing their way through clubs around the world.

Having established various releases on various record labels, the time has come for Culprate to gain some real direction. The 5 Star EP via Inspected Records marks a new era for Culprate. Aptly named, the EP is massively anticipated, and has already gained the support from the likes of KOAN Sound, Gemini & Skrillex. Admittedly, Culprate’s releases have always been a tad sporadic, but the 5 Star EP is certainly the result of careful planning and meticulous attention to detail.

It’s fair to say that Culprate is a household name in the underground world of dubstep. However, he is far from content, admitting recently he would love to get his hands on some hardware to take his production to the next level. And with influences ranging from Squarepusher to Amon Tobin, only Culprate could tell you what sort of production the future holds. But from what we’ve seen already, we know it’ll be good.


A well respected producer within the Australian Bass Music community and highly sought after within the festival circuit, Goosebumpz is consistently booked nationwide for large, reputable outdoor festivals, some of which have included Splendour in the Grass, Rainbow Serpent Festival, Strawberry Fields, Maitreya, Earth Frequency, Wide Open Space, Deliverance, Manifest and the 2012 Eclipse Festival in FNQLD.

With four Canadian tours under his belt already, Goosebumpz has performed at festivals overseas such as Shambhala, Bass Coast, Motion Notion, Astral Harvest and Entheos Gathering. He’s rocked well known sound camps and art cars at Burning Man like Fractal Nation / Planet, the Buddha Lounge and the Mayan Warrior and has also headlined a string of indoor shows at venues across British Columbia.

He’s followed heavyweight performers like Bassnectar (2009), performed alongside legendary live acts such as Tipper, Opiuo and Vibesquad and has also enjoyed time in the charts for his original music on both Beatport and Addictech on many occasions.

With an arsenal of fresh, phat, cheeky beats and an energetic approach to his live performances, Goosebumpz is very excited to deliver his eclectic style at festivals and indoor shows around the World throughout 2015.
