HIGH RANKIN (Suicide Dub, UK) *NYC DEBUT*
Dubstep dandy and local bounder, High Rankin is one of the scene’s more eccentric artists. His music brims with character and personality that engulfs the listener as well as causing the obvious dance... floor riot! He has an excellent moustache and will fight anyone who disagrees.
High Rankin signed to Underdogs Management in July 2008 and since then has released his lauded EP’s on Herve’s Cheap Thrills label, as well as featuring tracks on Jay Cunning’s new Sub Slayers label, with his own Suicide Dub imprint now in full flow. Added to this, he achieved a development publishing deal with Bucks Music Group and his live performances have become highly in demand across the UK, Europe and Russia. Ever the avid remixer, his remixes for Kevin Rudolf, Missy Eliot, B Real (Cypress Hill), Skunk Anansie, Adam Freeland and Amon Tobin have garnered him even further acclaim.
He has achieved regular play listing and guest appearances on Radio 1 and Kiss FM for his own work and recent releases. 2010 sees him return to his true passion – releasing his increasingly diverse music in completely the way he wants. His work has reached well over a million hits on YouTube and his online presence, especially, grows by the second, with recent single ‘Don’t Carry On Like A Rude Boy When Daddy’s Got A Yacht’ getting over 20,000 plays on Soundcloud a month before it’s official release.

Known for his party-rocking selections and tight mixing skills, Dave’s 13 years of Djing experience is evident when he is at the controls. His DJ mixes have received wide acclaim and this year marks the beginning of his production career. In 2010, Dave also formed “Heavy Weight Division” alongside Diggadee MC. They are the 1st nationally booked Dubstep DJ/MC combo in the United States and are known for setting parties off with their live performances. Keep an eye out for Dave’s productions this year and make sure to catch him in your city.
Trigon has been representing upfront bass music in the City of New York as well as in Miami, making both his presence felt and honing his skills behind the decks. Coming from a diverse background of musical influences, his keen ear has helped him within the Dubstep scene, bringing the biggest beats from the cutting edge each and every time he touches down pon the decks. With his name buzzing already, a recent collaboration with Sol.ID entitled "Dirt Legs" was released on Basswerk in early 2010, and has not only received worldwide DJ support, but was featured on the mighty Metalheadz Podcast (their ninth show), which is a huge look for any producer out there. 2011 sees Trigon pushing forward, taking the mantle as CEO of the Profound Audio imprint, which he sees as a showcase for both established and upcoming producers making high quality Dubstep, D&B and more. He’s also got releases brimming on a number of labels, as well as a residency at The Darkroom, the most prestigious Dubstep institution in Brooklyn, NY. If you’re looking for the future sound of Dubstep, you’ve found it; keep your ears to the street, as the real revolution has begun http://www.profoundaudio.com/

Although Dnb will always be the main ingredient on Diggadee's menu, the Dubstep movement brings a more expansive range of musical awareness. Performing with many of the biggest names in Drum n' Bass from around the world, Diggadee has also managed to work with the biggest names in Dubstep as well i.e. Skream, Benga, Borgore, Datsik & 12th Planet; to name a few. As the two genre's seem to intertwine, the ability to vibe and adapt is necessary in an ever changing music scene. MC Diggadee, Diggadee MC...the spaceship has landed.
