Audio

Four albums, countless 12”s and over 15 years deep into his limit-pushing adventures, Gareth continues to surge at the very forefront of the sound he’d first experienced as young Londoner tuning in to Colin Dale’s eminent Abstract Dance Kiss FM sermons. Instant jungle entrenchment: he hurled himself into the fray. Vinyls, Reason, illegal raves… The boy – whose mum brought him up on a strict diet of ABBA and Queen – grabbed any angle and any opportunity to get involved.
From ringing up and booking Ed Rush for a party above a pub in Croydon off the back of mobile number on a test press … To scoring a job as in-house studio engineer at legendary rave distributors Alphamagic where he studied the dark art of dynamics at a masters level: Audio wouldn’t – and still won’t – settle for anything less than full immersion.

His own production stripes stretch back to just after the turn of the century when he found himself at the helm of Resonant Evil. Demonstrating their power with a debut on the genre-defining Renegade Hardware, over the course of two years they scorched the repertoires of Moving Shadow, G2 and Outbreak. As Resonant Evil’s brutal bulletins wound down, Audio was winding up. Carving his own path with his own rules, he was soon snapped up by early neuro pioneers Tech Freak Recordings who gave him the opportunity to stretch himself creatively and broadcast his first long playing message. Audio’s debut album ‘To The Edge Of Reason’ showed the world he could cater for experiences beyond the dancefloor yet convey the same attitude and defiant dynamic he’d become synonymous with as a DJ and on 12”s. It was so well received; within a year he was signed by Ed Rush and Optical and for five years became an intrinsic member of the Virus family.

Audio’s work on Virus is where he really developed momentum. Already an established headliner across Europe, his productions and reputation became a global phenomenon, leading to tours in every territory. This reputation was compounded by albums such as ‘Genesis Device’ and ‘Soul Magnet’ which spawned the mighty ‘Headroom’. One of the most influential and successful tracks of its time, it knocked chart-topping EDM star Avicii off the Beatport top spot, dominating the chart for a total of 13 weeks and setting the foundation for his final Virus album ‘Force Of Nature’. Released in October 2013, it threw the scene completely off-guard… No other producer has conjured two albums of such strong-armed quality within less than a year. Just as his debut album had pricked the ears of Virus, ‘Force Of Nature’ attracted Andy C’s Ram Records.

Kindred spirits, Audio and Ram Records are a natural fit: both D&B lifers, both as emphatic and enthusiastic about the scene as they were at inception, both dedicated to pushing drum & bass to its furthest limits creatively and sonically, Audio’s decorated career has leveled up once more. To Gareth, though, it’s business as usual; still immersed in production science (now using the unique Studio One set up) and still just as buzzed about slapping a dancefloor into submission with deadly double drops as he was when he kicked off, Audio’s unique punch is harder than it’s ever been.

Teddy Killerz

Meet Oleg and Anton, the Russian/Ukrainian duo formerly known as Place 2B and Paimon, now more popularly known as Teddy Killerz. Skrillex himself was so impressed by the duo’s Make It Bun Dem Remix Contest entry that he not only proclaimed them honorary winners, but he also decided to sign them to his groundbreaking label, OWSLA. The label is famous for their intriguing and varied selection of artists, and they don’t take new artists lightly. Best known for their stellar dnb, dubstep, and breaks productions, the duo decided to switch things up for their first original release for OWLSA with the Toys Riot EP, a three-track collection of some very filthy trap music.

BustaMoveNew

We’re extremely excited to bring to you the 2nd instalment of our Bust A Move event series dedicated to bringing you the funky and bass heavy side of music we love so much!

This time we’ve teamed up with the crew from Adapted Records and put together an all star local and international lineup including some old skool favourites and some rising stars:

Stanton Warriors

Since bursting onto the scene with their multi award-winning compilation “The Stanton Sessions” back in 2001, the Stanton Warriors’ irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties over the past thirteen years; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Glastonbury, Exit, Burning Man, Ultra and Coachella, selling out global tours and topping DJ lists along the way.

In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark, uncategorisable sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Records, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA and Gorillaz. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity has ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant; obstinately dancing to beat of their own drum and helping to pave the way for new talent.

In 2013 alone, the Stanton Warriors topped the Beatport charts (again), inspired Disclosure’s Grammy-nominated album Settle, got Annie Mac dancing on her living room carpet, opened London’s 3k capacity Building Six club, saw their podcast shoot to No. 3 in the iTunes chart and smashed the stages of Coachella, Ultra and Glastonbury.

In 2014, the Stanton Warriors typically show no sign of slowing down, with sold-out Stanton Sessions tours across the USA and UK, a brand new album with a tonne of exciting collaborations, including Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird-signed Cause & Affect, main stage slots at London’s SW4 and Miami’s Ultra festivals and a slew of exciting releases on their own tastemaker label Punks.

Stickybuds

From the funkafied west coast of Canada, Stickybuds has been making his mark on music all over the globe. In the last few years he’s found himself performing in 19 different countries, captivating fans wherever he goes. His work ethic and passion have also earned him a residency at Canada’s Shambhala music festival (2005 – 2013), as well as performances at Glastonbury (UK), Splore Festival (NZ), Burning Man (USA) and the legendary Space club in Ibiza (ES).

With 23 releases on multiple labels, Sticky loves to create and play dance floor friendly music of many different tempo’s. His sets are filled with Funk, DNB, Glitch Hop, Reggae and Breaks all intricately woven through countless hours in the studio.

The end of 2012 will be an exciting one as lots of new music is on the way from the Sticky one. Tours in CA / AU / NZ / UK / US and Europe are also all being planned as you read this.

Expect even bigger things to come from the forward thinking and all around nice guy Stickybuds.

Cheshire

Cheshire has always found his solace in producing electronic music.
Starting with dubstep in 2008 he released the number one selling E.P. “Punk” with “Excisions” Rottun Records, gaining a broad recognition within the genre.

Over the past seven years he has developed his production techniques and style arriving recently to a point where bass and glitch meet jazz funk and soul.

After two years of travelling the world and gathering inspiration, Cheshire has resided in Melbourne to refine his funk infused Latin laced rhythms.

Now working with Adapted Records Cheshire has recently released his third E.P. and his first Album due out the end of April.

NEON STEVE – Bombstrike records, Cheap thrills.
————————————————————————-
They say nice guys finish last but that certainly isn’t the case for one of Western Canada’s most talked about DJ/Producers; Neon Steve. This peer-declared nice guy has jumped ahead of the game and is quickly showing why he’s held down top spots on Beatport, Juno, Hype Machine and Soundcloud hot charts, taken top spots in DJ Challenges in addition to being voted locally as the best Electronic producer in 2012.

Comfortable rinsing out everything from Future Bass to Drum and Bass, Neon Steve has developed a reputation for playing high energy sets that blend and twist conventional genres. His production ranges in tempos but he’s most at home working on bass music full of low end frequencies.

Neon Steve’s production and remix work is widely talked about and has seen him working alongside some of the biggest and best known bass artists in EDM. Remix credits include Datsik & Bare, The Beekeepers, Rico Tubbs, Mooqeee, Herbgringer and Excision & Downlink (x2), the latter of which sat at the top of Beatport’s Top 10 Dubstep chart for well over a month and was licensed to a Ministry of Sound Compilation. In addition, Neon Steve’s remix of Breach’s ‘Jack’ caught the attention of Mad Decent label figure Diplo and was featured on his BBC 1Xtra show.

Besides remixes, Neon Steve’s original releases have been charting themselves. Many of his releases on Bombstrikes, including two vinyl releases, topped Juno charts as best sellers and his original track, Got This Feeling taken from his Feeling EP, was featured in MixMag as Tune of the Month.

While 2012 saw Neon Steve touring Europe, UK and Canada, 2013 took him down under as he got a chance to rinse out in the outback’s of Australia and New Zealand. 2014 will see him continue globetrotting as he looks to touch down in Europe, and USA in addition to a reappearance in Australia. Already well known for his festival sets, including many major Canadian festivals appearances at places like Shambhala (Fractal Forest), Neon Steve continues to show why he’s one of Canada’s most talked about DJ/Producers.

Never slowing down and always forward thinking, Neon Steve is not an artist you’ve heard the last of. With 2014 looking to propel him ahead, he is well on his way injecting a bit of brightness amongst some of bass music’s brightest stars.

FOURWARD

Prepare yourselves for a high performance, sonic onslaught as we introduce the most breathtaking drum & bass outfit to have emerged from Austria in recent years, Fourward.

Influenced heavily by the likes of Bad Company, Noisia and Ed Rush & Optical, the collective formed back in 2007, bringing together a myriad of styles into one slick package to take the scene by storm with huge releases on a host of prestigious labels including Virus, Vision, Audioporn and most recently SGN:LTD.

Their breakthrough release came in 2009 on DJ Trace’s legendary DSCI4 label while their collaboration with Body & Soul on Ed Rush & Optical’s Virus Recordings took their profile to the next level with support from all corners of the globe. Since then Ludwig, Lukas, Dominik and Nik have travelled the globe as their renowned DJ sets continue to set dance floors alight with their own trademark take on drum & bass.

With the recent success of their hit remix of the Upbeat’s ‘Alone’ on Noisia’s Vision Recordings and 2013’s ‘Aftermath’ EP on AudioPorn Records perking up the ears of a certain Friction on BBC Radio 1, it wasn’t long after that the call was made; the year culminated in their signing exclusively with Shogun Audio. Kicking off this new chapter with the jaw dropping ‘Black Tooth Grin’ single on Shogun’s sister imprint SGN:LTD in October, plus their forthcoming outing ‘On A Knife Edge’ included on the Way Of The Warrior 2 label compilation, Fourward have marked their card ready to kick down even more doors in 2014 and beyond.

DOSE

Since his first release in 2006 Dose has forged and cemented a solid reputation as one of the top solo drum and bass artists to come out of New Zealand. Having consistently released his works on a vast spectrum of top Labels such Ram and Renegade and with his dj sets containing a well tasted & delivered selection of original and International content, Dose has built a well respected reputation as both a Headline DJ and as producer.
2014 will be the year Dose’s debut LP titled “Mind the Future” sees the light of release on Klute’s Commercial Suicide. With the sampler being released in March and full release set for mid-year this LP will give fans and champions of Dose’s music a broad and varied platter of his sound from driving and energetic to more deep and intimate style.
Dose is a unique talent who holds true to being great example of an underground artist who stands by his sound and his Technique and is embarking on a tour promote his LP across Europe, Uk, New Zealand and Australia from April – July this year.
