Expect nothing but ground breaking pure quality from these rising stars as they take you on a journey in to the art form that is drum & bass…
Monday Novmeber 2nd – Melbourne Cup public holiday eve @ LA DI DA (577 Little Bourke st. Melbourne)
Conceived by Kasra back in 2002 in a front room in north London, Critical Music has grown from a simple idea, driven by a commitment to putting out the best music the scene has to offer and has made an indelible mark on the drum & bass scene, a mark that continues to grow ever-stronger and has now become one of the most well respected independent record labels in the UK and of one of the most inspiring imprints in dance music today. The Critical age is only just beginning.
Twisted Audio presents Phace (Neosignal, GER)Posted: Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015
Twisted Audio presents
(Neosignal , GER)
Saturday October 10th @ Railway Hotel Brunswick
Support: Okuli / Monkee / Lickweed / Calibrate / Zero1
Phace makes his debut appearance with Twisted Audio this October to celebrate the release of his new LP ‘Shape The Random’, out now on Neosignal Recordings.
We are very excited and honoured to have one of the most influential and groundbreaking drum & bass artists join us at Twisted for this very exclusive and intimate event.
PHACE is the alias used by Florian Harres, an electronic music producer, DJ and label owner from Hamburg, Germany. Over the past decade he not only defined his very own style of cutting-edge electronic music but also toured most corners of this planet, building a large, faithful global following.
His wide-ranging back catalogue of music includes three full length albums (Psycho, From Deep Space and Raum Und Zeit), various EP’s (e.g. Now & Tomorrow, Energie, Motor, Vitreous, and more) plus countless singles and collaborations (e.g. Brainwave, Cold Champagne, Program, Desert Orgy, and more).
Phace’s music is released on the world’s biggest indie labels such as Vision, OWSLA, Mau5trap, Shogun Audio, Virus, Critical, and of course NEOSIGNAL RECORDINGS, his own imprint.
His sound is best described by twisted bass, rhythmical experimentation, high contrast ambience, deep cinematic themes, explosive energy, and yet human analog soul and funk. This unique approach is constantly piquing demand for appearances at clubs, festivals and media around the globe.

Twisted Audio residents support Wilkinson & Brookes BrothersPosted: Thursday, August 27th, 2015
// WILKINSON (UK, RAM Records)
& MC AD-APT
// BROOKES BROTHERS (UK, Viper Recordings)
[56 Fitzroy Street, St.Kilda]
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 5TH
Plus EKKO & SIDETRACK (Perth, Viper Recordings)
Fendi / Cam Brodie / A Foreign Objekt
A new-school star for drum ‘n’ bass straight out of South London, Mark Wilkinson’s distinctive productions and remixes have the international scene – fans and critics alike – utterly hooked. Lush, melodic and emotional, Wilkinson’s tunes have huge cross-over appeal: he dips into the realm of pop rock while still going in with hard ‘n’ fast beats and sizzling drops. Collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Katy B have further secured his pop crossover appeal, while his work with Nero, Chase & Status, and Naughty Boy have cemented his legitimacy in the d’n’b scene.
As a teenager Wilkinson carved out his way with releases on Hospital Records, before being handpicked by Andy C to join Andy’s RAM Records (Virgin / EMI) label. He’s already made the label very proud with several club anthems, including the hugely popular Afterglow, which charted in the Top 5 on the UK Charts, sold 400,000 copies and snagged 35 million Youtube views.
His subsequent debut, Lazers Not Included, went to #1 on the iTunes Dance chart in no less than ten (!) countries, leading to a huge demand for Wilkinson gigs around the world – he’s played massive festivals Glastonbury, Wireless, Reading, Leeds, and EDC Vegas, and has a sold-out debut UK live tour under his belt. UK radio elite Annie Mac and Zane Lowe have been singing his praises and premiering his tracks since day dot and he recently scooped the pool at the UK National Drum & Bass Awards, taking home gongs for ‘Best Single’, ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Video’, ‘Best Producer’ and ‘Best Live Act’, and
He recently debuted a new live show at Electric Brixton (watch an official video from it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsS-KKHim6U) and as you can see, its an epic and electric undertaking that more than delivers on Wilkinson’s resume hype.
Wilkinson is the scene’s golden boy right now for very good reason – see why when he bounces through Australia and New Zealand. Wilkinson lets us in on what to expect of the shows: “After my album and Afterglow dropped, the shows have been really packed and there’s a great atmosphere out there. I’ll be representing my album, but also playing my favourite tunes from the wider drum ‘n’ bass genre. I’m getting my party set going. I’ll also be trying out some new music that isn’t out there yet, and road-testing that.”
One of the most respected production partnerships in Drum and Bass, the Brookes Brothers have become a formidable force across the bass music scene. Known for their unique, soul and disco infused beats, the Brookes Brothers are one of the genres most accomplished production teams.
Fresh from the BBC Radio 1 playlisted hit ‘Loveline’ released to wide acclaim on Breakbeat Kaos in late 2012, the legendary production team signed exclusively to the label they started out with, Viper Recordings.
In August 2013 the Brothers released ‘Carry Me On’ (featuring Chrom3 on vocals) to high acclaim, being selected as Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record in the World”, as well as making the BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra playlist and hitting #7 on the official UK Independent Charts. With a new album in the works for 2014, the most exciting chapter so far for the Brookes Brothers is about to emerge.
