- RAMADANMAN/PEARSON SOUND -
We are very excited to present Ramadanman/Pearson Sound, the front-running London producer and DJ with a reputation for his incredibly virile, genre-stomping percussive sound and a toweringly innovative figure in the UK post-dubstep circles.
David Kennedy, otherwise known as Ramadanman or Pearson Sound, has constructed a sprawling resume over his career, picking up DJing at 14 and since exploring a massive breadth of soundscapes in electronic bass music.
Most recently, The North London native took on the latest Fabriclive project, Fabriclive.56, a mix which winds seamlessly through a long catalog of genres, and includes his 30 takes of overheated hits, including tracks from Burial and Joy Orbison.
- ZED BIAS/MADDSLINKY -
Breakbeat garage legend and pioneer Dave Jones has decorated his long-running career with everything from mainstream chart hits to underground fame, and we're honored to bring this ground-breaking producer (aka Zed Bias) to the Public Assembly stage, playing under his recently revived Maddslinky moniker!
Jones' most recent full-length Make a Change hit airwaves in September of last year including new jams as well as collaborations with artists like Omar, Jenna G, and Mr. Scruff. The record marked the first release as Maddslinky since 2002's Make Your Peace.
- SALVA -
Paul Salva (aka Salva) is the missing electronic link connecting the SF dubstep world and funky LA beat scenes with UK's house horizons, not to mention he's the main man behind the eclectic electro label Frite Nite.
We've been spinning Salva's jaw-dropping debut, Complex Housing, nonstop since its release in February via the Friends of Friends label.
A dizzying collection of amazing DJs are supporting the Surefire Sound artists on this bill: including DJG, two-time DMC champion DJ Shiftee, and locals Enoe and Max Echo.
Lets party y'all! :D
