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.


Bust A Move feat. Stanton Warriors, Stickybuds, Cheshire + More

Posted: Wednesday, January 28th, 2015


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:

Friday 13th of February at Brown Alley (585 Lonsdale st. Melbourne CBD)

Stanton Warriors (UK)
Stickybuds (CAN)
Cheshire (Adapted Records)

Lickweed (Adapted Records)
Monkee (Twisted Audio)
Rhythmik (Culture Jam) (Rock Like This)
DJ Sizzle
DJ Ayna (The Brotherhood of Beats)
DJ Maars (Ghettofunk)

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.


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 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.
