EXODUS HEAVYWEIGHT DUBSTEP / DUB SESSION
HATCHA (KISS FM / TEMPA)
DJ Hatcha is one of the original FWD residents alongside Youngsta and Kode9, and is regarded as one of the original pioneers of dubstep. You could find him behind the desk at Croydon’s Big Apple Records, the infamous shop which became a hub for the dubstep scene as it developed. Hatcha mixed the first dubstep compilation; ‘Dubstep Allstars Vol:1’ on genre mainstay Tempa, as well as volume 4 in the series, and supported artists like Skream and Benga from very early on in their careers. He has released various singles himself - on Tempa as well as Mike Paradinas’ Planet Mu, and is resident on Kiss FM.
Pinch occupies a special place in dubstep history. After a visit to Forward>> in late 2003 he returned to his native Bristol with missionary zeal. He began DJing and promoting the city's dubstep first night, Subloaded, that matched London's DMZ or Forward>> in spirit and in soundsystem bass weight. After work helping Vex'd on their path to album success, Pinch founded the Tectonic imprint and made a name for himself as a DJ that combined bass impact with deep melodic subtleties. With a deep love of Basic Channel, he did much to pioneer the Berlin/Bristol dubstep/dub techno love affair we see today

ORIS JAY (TEXTURE / PLANET MU)
In 2009 Oris Jay’s influence has never been more powerful… His dark sound revolutionized the UK garage and breaks scenes and laid the foundations for 21st Century dubstep.. this is the boy who wrote the book.. Oris also produces as Darqwan, DQ1 and RS4… He’s based in Sheffield, Steel City, home of his seminal label Texture.
KROMESTAR (DUBSTAR / SOUTHSIDE)
"Kromestar is one of the biggest dubstep producers in the scene at the moment, and a name we're sure you have come across lately with his mixes on Marxmen, Dub Steppers and more. The Hungry Bully EP is another big release to jump on, as it's already getting lots of props and could potentially become a club favorite this winter."
