Bust A Move feat. Stanton Warriors, Stickybuds, Cheshire + MorePosted: 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)
Cheshire (Adapted Records)
Lickweed (Adapted Records)
Monkee (Twisted Audio)
Rhythmik (Culture Jam)
Citizen.com (Rock Like This)
DJ Ayna (The Brotherhood of Beats)
DJ Maars (Ghettofunk)
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.

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 (Shogun Audio, UK) & Dose (Mind the Future LP Tour)Posted: Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014
Twisted Audio is proud to present one of finest upcoming producers on the international DnB scene on their first visit to Melbourne::
Fourward (Shogun Audio, UK)
Dose (Mind the Future LP tour)
A Foreign Objekt
Friday 12th of December @ Brown alley (585 Lonsdale st. Melbourne CBD)
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.
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.
