Loaded Dice in association with Rukus and Rescued present the Heavyweight Soundz Tour featuring Andy C, Camo & Krooked, Fierce, Jakes and MC GQ - main stage at The Met on Australia Day night.
Headlining this drum & bass spectacular is Andy C. Recognised as an instrumental player in the Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass movement, Andy C has become a global ambassador for Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass, regarded as one of the greatest DJs to ever grace the wheels of steel. The founder of influential label Ram Records, Andy C has dedicated almost two decades of his life to the music he loves, jetting across the globe, showcasing his turntable mastery. Skills that have earned him a status as one of the most iconic and important figures in global dance music culture.
Building further on an incredible career, the future is bright for this Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass superstar. 2010 was the year of the Ram with Andy releasing â€˜Nightlife 5â€™, the next installment of the highly regarded Nightlife mix series along with Ram Nights moving to underground dance superclub Fabric and the label signing a raft of fresh talent.
Most recently, Andy has just completed a nine date run of his groundbreaking new audio visual show, "Alive" in the UK followed by a massive five date super-tour of Oz on the Stereosonic Festival and was recently crowned # 1 Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass DJ for the 13th year running. The man they call the Executioner isnâ€™t softening up...in fact, heâ€™s sharpening his axe.
Alongside Andy C will be MC GQ. GQ is a DJ's MC, seeing his role as a middle man between the DJ and the crowd rather than constantly demanding centre stage. This approach has kept GQ at the top of the MC ranks for 15 years and making him partner to many of the top flight DJs. Alongside Hype at One Nation to Goldie at a Metalheadz Session, his versatile style means he can keep the crowd bubbling to a liquid set then switch up to double time and tear down a rave.
Camo & Krooked
Austrian duo Reinhard Rietsch and Markus Wagner are Camo & Krooked. In a short space of time they have become one of the hottest production outfits in Europe. Producing together since 2007, Grooverider hailed them as â€œone of the biggest talents in Drum â€˜Nâ€™ Bassâ€. The Viennese duo have created a whirl of dancefloor anthems in recent times; releasing dancefloor bombs like â€˜Turn Up the Musicâ€™ â€˜Watch it Burnâ€™ and â€˜Climaxâ€™ on Hospital Records
With a swag of killer releases, the duo are now signed exclusively to Hospital Records. Thanks to their first class studio work, Camo & Krooked have a hectic DJ schedule, touring the globe on the back of their debut album â€˜Cross The Lineâ€™. Cross The Line is a fourteen-track rollercoaster ride of emotive dance that firmly establishes Camo & Krooked as dance leaders outside of the Drum â€˜Nâ€™ Bass sphere, delving into dubstep, drumstep, electro-house and everything in between.
Considered to be a DJâ€™s DJ, Fierce has been at the forefront of the Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass scene since the mid 1990â€™s. Known as the Tech Step era, Fierce first made a name for himself on the genre-busting imprint, No U-Turn since the tender age of 16. Since then Fierce has defined the scene with his own exciting brand of energetic Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass.
In 2009, Fierce launched his own label, Quanrantine, working alongside producers Break, Optiv, D-Bridge and Silent Witness.
Fierce has long been known as one of the most exciting and energetic DJs in Drum â€˜nâ€™ Bass, with his mad skills translating from the decks to the studio, and by decks, he means turntables as Fierce still holds an insatiable love for dubplates and vinyl. Fierce brings sounds from across the spectrum and uniquely fuses them to create a new and fresh sound every time.
Jakes is many things to many people, to some he is the voice of TCâ€™s smash hits â€˜Deepâ€™, â€˜Drinkâ€™ and â€˜Mindkillerâ€™, to others he is the Daddy of Bristolian Dubstep crew H.E.N.C.H and to musical historians he is one of the most interesting vocalists that underground British music can lay claim to. Never afraid to break from tradition and roll with his own flow, Jakesâ€™ voice has become one of the most... recognizable in the game and his energetic live performances see him traveling across the globe and smacking down raves from Bristol to Boston with his inimitable style.
