Freestylers, Calvertron, Steve Thorpe, Resistance, Ash Howell, MADM, Beats Bazarre
What a start to 2012! Firstly with the Scratch Perverts in February, then Lowdown winning 'Best Small event' at Breakspoll and then Krafty Kuts & Elite Force hitting Lowdown hard in March. We now return with another big bass line up as we welcome back the Freestylers after they blew the roof of for our 1st birthday over a year ago. Joining them will be Electro-Dubstep-Bass wizzard, Calvertron, who is smashing out track after track and topping Beatport charts all over the place, check out the pictures, tracks and links on the wall. This is going to be HUGE!!
After a fifteen-year career which has seen the Freestylers cover all bases from the biggest festivals and most talked about nightclubs around the world, global dance charts and even the legendary UK music show Top Of The Pops, they have achieved the kind of success most artists can only dream of. Now, with attention firmly turned to the studio, itâ€™s fair to say Matt Cantor and Aston Harvey have launched a veritable assault on the music scene in recent months. Currently focusing on everything from breaks to ragga and dubstep, their ever-eclectic style rings true with each track they unleash.
Since last yearâ€™s release of â€˜Cracksâ€™, which has soared past 10 million hits on YouTube, fans and media have been waiting with baited breath for their next move. 2011â€™s EP â€˜Frozenâ€™ caused big waves upon its release earlier this year, and with countless hours of studio time booked in, keep those eyes peeled for their countless more gems due to touch down at the start of the new yearâ€¦
Releases aside, the Freestylers 2012 gig diary is filling up at speed with only the coolest festivals and venues on their hit list. Anyone whoâ€™s experienced a Freestylers set will know what we mean when we say, you will be rocked hard, and those that havenâ€™tâ€¦ what are you waiting for??
