Inspired by different music genres, Simone “Aeph” was compelled to make his own music and has released on a number of most cutting edge record labels. The “Aeph” sound is a dark melodic mixture of classic composition and surrealistic synthesizers, a retro futuristic vision of music combined with ultra modern riffs, great versatility and a finesse that rivals his role models.
“Aeph is on path for greatness! Mind blowing tunes with super tight production. Putting more BAD into Bad Taste.”
Blokhe4d is the collaborative project between Michael “Vegas” (formerly of Bad Company UK) alongside US-born Jonas “Uman”.

Neonlight is the union of two different characters who grew up as childhood neighbours. During the 90′s they both began listening to different things – one techno and rock, the other ranging from metal to hip hop. By copying and experimenting with their favourite styles they got their first experiences in producing music.2003 saw the teaming together of the two and the birth of Neonlight before their first vinyl release in 2007 on Berlin based label “NoBreaks!” On this tour down under, Bad Taste pays tribute to their hard work.
With releases on leading labels such as Playaz, Metalheadz, Commercial Suicide, Ganja Tek, Project 51, Renegade Hardware, Viper, Integral, Project 51, Virus and Bad Taste, Prolix continues to push the sonic boundaries with his unique style across the drum & bass scene. 2012 is set to see prolix move even further forward in the scene with more releases on Bad Taste, his very own 12 on Commercial suicide as well as a special collab with Klute, tunes on project 51 and C4C recs, and a hotly anticipated EP on Playaz.

● DJ CRAZE ●
5x World Champion / Kanye West & Yelawolf Tour DJ
Fool’s Gold / Slow Roast Records label boss
On top of his untouchable turntablist skills and scratch champion showmanship, the world has also recognised that Craze is a second to none club DJ he has toured the globe over. It’s the respect from both DJs and audiences alike that has paved Craze’s seamless move between hip hop and turntablism to drum’n'bass both serious subzero clique/cult scenes the globe over demanding much of any artist trying to peddle their wares worldwide; to what now sounds like club-style Miami bass, formed with the technical love of hip hop with clean cuts and ridiculously dextrous scratching, but a mix up of straight up rap, ghettotech, raw booty house, old-school electro, Baltimore/Miami bass crossover and sweaty lo-end dancefloor music, making it all but impossible to keep still.

\\Baron Von Rotton//
DJ and producer Baron Von Rotton’s deep driving bass lines have made him a perennial favourite on Melbourne’s broken beat scene. With a passion for dubstep, breaks and techno, he’s been packing the city’s dancefloors with his fresh remixes and innovative sound. With praise from Trackitdown.net hailing BVR’s remix of Smile on Impact’s STOP! as the “Largest Dubstep Tune from Melbourne, EVER!”, the bestseller track reached No. 2 on the site’s Top 100 Dubstep Chart.
Lickweed first started DJing in 2003 and was mainly involved in the Hip-Hop/Turntabilisim scene back in Israel. In 2004 he was first exposed to the underground DnB scene and fell in love with the sound, vibe and the world that is Drum n Bass. Expect banging tunes, fast mixing sprinkled with some beat juggling and scratching skills when this bad-boy jumps on the wheels of steel.
