The first release ‘The Nine’ was voted ‘Best track of all time’ by 130,000 members of Drum and Bass arena. Timeout magazine call him an 'uberproducer'; Knowledge voted him best producer in the world two years running; DJ Magazine have said his label Breakbeat Kaos is a 'sonic juggernaut'; and his website dogsonacid.com has for the last two years been the highest ranking music message board on bigboards.com.

Having recently topped the Juno singles download chart with 'Lord of Bashy', Warrior One's Carl Faure and Eoin Bradshaw have quickly emerged as a beacon for UK Funky and Tropical. After gaining underground notoriety as DJs in their respective strongholds of Brighton and Dublin, the two joined forces in East London early last year to start work on a project that was to propel them to the forefront of the UK's current revolution in future bass music.

James Martin, better known as Jayou, started raising eyebrows 18 months ago after drip-feeding the blogging community with a series of bass-heavy dubstep remixes, which culminated in a massive collaboration with Mad Decent head honcho, Diplo, and their remix of The Partysquad's, 'Murderer'. Since then, Jayou has gone on to raise roofs decimating dancefloors from Manchester to Serbia, with DJ sets which never fail to leave the bassbins shattered.
Local partyboys Mister 60 and Dry Bones passed us a mixtape last month which saw our jaws to drop, and our something-else rise... So, despite the already jam-packed bill, we had no choice but to get these guys in to mix some records live. Expect the freshest Garage-infused beats from start to finish.
