Stanton Warriors with Proxxy & Lantern, Ciconte
We welcome STANTON WARRIORS ON 11/28 !!!
In 2001, Stanton Warriors laid down a fresh new sound with the seminal ‘Stanton Sessions’ that was instantly signed to XL Recordings.
Overnight, Stanton Warriors became the hottest producers on the planet, and today they continue to stay at the very pinnacle of their profession.
Stanton dj sets are famed for incorporating exclusive original tracks mixed with homemade edits / remixes of cutting edge sounds from underground house through to abstract hip hop and everything in between. It’s all blended into a melting pot of low down booty electro punkishness, and is continually reminding the world why Stanton Warriors have remained unrivalled in their genre for more than a decade.
Proxxy & Lantern
In the summer of 2004 the already veteran of DC, DJ Proxxy played his first set with the upcoming local favorite DJ Lantern. With over 10 years combined experience (now 20) under their belts they then formed Proxx A Lantern, a tag team duo which played anything and everything under the sun.
Starting off playing multi-genre sets of hard house, breaks and drum and bass, they quickly gained respect from the local scene. By the late summer of 2005 they had managed to play almost every major local / big event in the DC Washington metropolitan area.
By winter 2005 they had landed a gig in London UK at Herbal nightclub alongside heavy hitters, Deekline, Napt, The Rogue Element, Tom Real and Dj Mutiny. That was only the beginning. The following years had them traveling all over the US touring in various cities with various headliners.
Their track record of who've they opened for or played alongside is amazing. Starting in 2006 they became residents at ULTRA music fest in Miami Florida and Starscape Music Festival in Baltimore Maryland. Also in the winter of 2006 they returned to London to play 2 more shows, one at the late END nightclub and one at Medicine Bar in London.
Running their Essential Breaks parties in DC and holding other residencies at various parties, they are a staple in local favorites in the DC area, as well as the east coast. They have played in such cities as New York NY, Chicago IL, St Louis MO, Seattle WA, Nashville TN, Pittsburgh PA, Philadelphia PA, Baltimore MD, Richmond VA, Charlotte NC, Dallas TX, Fort Lauderdale FL, Miami FL, London England and many more to come.
Proxxy and Lantern currently push the nu skool funk sound of breaks and the nasty electro fidget sound of house with a dash of dnb and everything in between. 2 masters of their craft, they continue to push forward with countless dj gigs in the local area's and beyond
