|| LOEFAH || (Swamp81)
A true pioneer, Loefah has been at the forefront of the UK underground for almost 10 years now, founding the infamous DMZ with Mala & Coki, and creating one of the most inspiring and on-point labels to emerge in recent times, Swamp81. Having released the most brutal half-step known to man, he has been busy touring the world as an acclaimed selector, whilst putting out records by artists such as Joy O, Boddika, Zed Bias & Addison Groove. This man knows whats up, and we can't wait to see what he has in-store for us.
|| ELGATO || (Hessle Audio)
Having burst onto the scene with a stunning debut 12" in the shape of 'Tonight / Blue', Elgato has gone onto cement his place as one of the finest DJ's in the UK right now, having been part of the Bruk collective, throwing parties and hosting radio shows across the UK, as well as recording one of the most impeccable LWE podcasts we've ever heard. Earlier last year, he released the incredible 'Music (Body Mix)' as part of the 116 & Rising compilation from Hessle Audio, proving his unique sound is hear to stay.
|| JON RUST & REECHA || (Standard Place / Lightworks)
Staples of the UK scene for a long time now, Rust & Reecha know exactly how to throw a party, having spent the last few years doing just that. Alongside Oneman and Asbo they now run the collective Standard Place, who recently celebrated their first birthday in style, with Joy O, Jackmaster, Benji B and Artwork all coming down to play. Not only have they featured on the Boiler Room a staggering three times, they have also added a label to their long list of achievements, by the name of Lightworks. The debut release from Ossie was one of the most talked about singles of the year, and further cemented just how good an ear these guys have. Along with partner in crime Asbo, they'll be dropping, as BR put it, 'record upon record of dopeness'. Can't argue with that.
|| WEST NORWOOD CASSETTE LIBRARY || (TEAL / WNCL Recordings)
Over the last two years this South London resident has been putting out records via his own WNCL Recordings label as consistently as anyone in the game, moving from intricately constructed Dubstep to the kind of warm, analogue house that makes you want to travel back to '91 and drink special punch till your blue in the face. Having been remixed by the likes of Pearson Sound, Brackles and Karenn, he most recently completed a superb Fact mix, proving just how vital he is to this burgeoning scene. He also has a healthy obsession with Mood II Swing, so what are you waiting for.
