BREAKS ROOM HEADLINER – DJ JEPPA
2009 UK DMC CHAMPION
DJ JEPPA's journey into the musically eclectic world of Turntablism began at the tender age of 12 when he was introduced to the art of scratching by British artists such as DJ Hype and Sy. Spurred on by these legends of the electronic music scene, by the age of just 16, Jeppa began to reveal his talent to the public, holding down residencies and performing to grateful audiences from the UK to the Canary Islands. In 2002 Jeppa discovered the DMC championships. Held annually with representatives from 27 countries across the globe, the DMC is the definitive world DJ championship. Only the cream of the crop make it through the local heats to take on the rest of the national talent before a champion is chosen to represent their home country. In 2004, Jeppa began his competition career, defeating 62 rival DJs in the well respected 'Turbo Promotions' DJ Comp. Filled with confidence, he decided his time had come to test his skills in the world renowned DMC championship, reaching the final of the London heat, held at London's 'Fabric' super-club. Since that day Jeppa has never looked back, competing in the UK heats every year since 2004 until in 2009, Jeppa was crowned UK champion. Now preparing himself for the world championships, to be held on his home turf of London, Jeppa is more impressive than ever before, demonstrating his lightning fast DJ skills at any given opportunity. His crowd pleasing tricks and eclectic music selection make Jeppa a favourite among fellow scratch fanatics and the uninitiated wider public alike. His dynamic style coupled with his jaw-dropping turntable skills make for excitement and intrigue in any setting. A wide range of influences and an astoundingly varied collection of musical genres mean Jeppa can please any audience and get the crowd moving.

DnB ROOM - MANGA
Cyntax Error Records
DJ Manga started out dj’ing at a friend’s house back in the mid 90’s. He was always listing to kool fm tapes that his friends used to bring to class after the weekend. He then moved on to play out at house parties and clubs all over London in the late 90’s. At the turn of the century Manga decided it was time to start building his own tracks (as all dj’s do at some point in their career)
While Manga was playing around at home in the studio he was also starting to play out at bigger and better clubs and also pirate radio stations, Notting Hill Carnival (studio one’s Stage), Hyper fm, UK-rumble, Rollercoaster and Pure Jungle to name a few. A few years on and still getting to grips with Drum ’n’ Bass production Manga had already been good friends with Dj SLB which in turn went on to working at NakedBeatz records, this is when he started playing SLB with his production. and was always getting tips here and there from a lot of different dj’s in and out of the industry (just go up to them and ask nicely)
This went on for another year or two before Manga decided it was time to start sending out CD’s to record labels for feed back mainly, if not more. Manga then came into work one Thursday or Friday afternoon and passed SLB two Cd’s with his latest jump up mayhem (as he did every two or three weeks) Funny thing was at that point in time a Dj walked into the shop by the name of Rekless and SLB gave him the CD’s Manga had just given to him about an hour prior to that.
Manga got a call from SLB the next day telling him that Rekless liked some of the tunes that were on the CD. Rekless was starting up a record Label with his long time partner in crime Dj Dazzler. This turned into an exclusive recording contract with the label now known and well respected CYNTAX ERROR RECORDS. By this time Manga had already decided to slow down his Dj work and appearances at nightclubs to so that he could concentrate more on his productions and build a properly equipped home recording studio. Now with some of his very own hard hitting Manga Jump Up style tunes being played all over the world Dj Manga is set to make his name and stamp it into the DnB industry.
