FRENZI featuring ANT TC1 5.11.2013

April 25th, 2013 | By

(Metalheadz | Dispatch, UK)
Ant TC1 along with Hidden Agenda founded Dispatch Recordings back in 2001, Ant originally helped out with the management side of the label before finding his feet within the realms of production; which was a natural progression for him having DJ’d on pirate radio and in clubs from the age of 15 (since 1993). His first release along side frequent studio partner Stress Level appeared on Dispatch after almost 3 years of hard work getting their collective sound where they felt it needed to be in the studio before even thinking about turning on a DAT recorder. After their first release aired they quickly picked up a wealth of dj support on their early material and went on to release for a who’s who list of established Drum & Bass record labels including the likes of Renegade, CIA, Advanced, Critical Records Integral, Liquid V, Commercial Suicide, Good Looking Records, Bingo beats and Samurai Music. By demand remix work started to feature heavily within their output and the duo went on to remix for the likes of Hidden Agenda, Chris SU, Artificial Intelligence, Kabuki, Total Science, Optical & Ryme Time (Jagged Edge), Atlantic Connection, Tactile & DJ Marky.

Ant’s production output has featured on a mass of compilations and mix cd’s compiled by the likes of Shy FX, LTJ Bukem, Total Science, AI, Spectrasoul, Klute and Brian G. Additionally his work has featured very heavily within the BBC radio 1 shows of Friction, Grooverider, Fabio & Bailey on their respective slots over the years. His DJ work has seen him play all over the globe from Adelaide to Los Angeles, from Hong Kong to Budapest, Tel-Aviv to Bangkok and last but by no means least regularly UK wide.

Fast forward to 2013 and Ant is now solely responsible for the running & label manager role of Dispatch Recordings; having released a mix CD compilation, the hugely successful “Transit One” album in 2011 (which topped almost all the usual stores weekly dance music sales charts across all formats) as well as a fine list of consistently quality single and EP releases from the likes of Survival, Break, Octane & DLR , Marcus Intalex, Commix, AI, Chris SU, Zero T, Cern, Dabs, Skeptical, Dub Phizix, Spinline, himself (and many more). Ant has recently remixed material for the likes of Lomax (Loadstar), Sunchase, Cern & Dabs as well as having his own solo work remixed by rising star Xtrah and working on further collabs with the likes of Survival and DLR. Ant also continues to run his own monthly night at ‘Momentum’ in Leeds (which is headed into it’s 10th year) as well as managing the renowned Metalheadz label & it’s events worldwide (for none other than the D&B legend that is Goldie) and still continuing to dj across the globe on an ever-frequent basis.!/AntTC1

UKT Presents: Soul Slinger n Estefex Going Away Party 3.28.2013

March 26th, 2013 | By

>>>>>>>>SOUL SLINGER<<<<<<<<<<

While many modern-day American drum and bass DJs fight for the title of “don”, the true American Emperor of Drum and bass is still standing! Frequently referred to as the Russel Simons of the electronic music scene, Soul Slinger the true American electronic music mogul. For years he has been a monumental figure of the past and present state of Electronic Music Culture.

Born and raised in Sao Paulo Brazil, Carlos Soul Slinger began his career in the early 1980’s. After many years, looking for new direction, Soul Slinger decided to make the move to New York city. In 1989, Slinger opened along Rey , what was to be one of the most important icons of the American rave culture – the store known as Liquid Sky. Liquid Sky is the original “rave emporium” in the United States. Providing clothing, cosmetics, novelties, mix tapes and vinyl. The trend soon followed across the United States with many other fundamental shops such as Satellite Records, Break Beat Science, Dr Free Clouds Mixing Lab, Pure Acid, and many others.

DJ Soul Slinger quickly followed up the success of the store with a record label – Liquid Sky Music / Jungle Sky Records. Liquid Sky Music has been responsible for some of the most forward-thinking music to emerge from the New York City underground over the decades. In 1994, he released the Jungle Liquid Sky / Ethiopia 12″, being the first release on Jungle Sky Records, and at that, the first American drum and bass production on vinyl. Since then, he has released countless singles, and albums collaborating with everyone from Afrika Bambaataa, Ali Khan, Elliot Sharp, Bill Laswell, Bernie Worell (Funkadelic), Grand Master DST, Derek Bailey, William Burroughs, Ziggy Marley, Dee Lite, Arto Lindsay, Buckethead, DJ Disk, DJ Spooky, Air Liquide, Otto with Bebel Gilberto, Chico Science and Nacao Zumbi, Funk como le gusta, BID ,Cyro Batista,,Suba, Mestre Ambrosio, Soul Coughing, Ben Neil, Neils Peter Molvar, T POWER, Terry Lynn Corrington ,Martin Koller, MC DET, Jamalski, The Swirlies, MINISTRY and others.

Hippo and Estefex’s first cd release

October 11th, 2012 | By

2004 was a big year for the duo Hippo & Estefex. It was the year that the weekly @ Clarks “Turn It Up” was started by the duo and their first of many mix cd’s to be released. After a request by a friend was made of where he could find this first mix cd, I decided to go through my old computer and pull the file off for him. I figured this was the appropriate forum to place the mix for many to enjoy. Hope you all like. This one is for you Jeff!

Frenzi 2 Year Anniversary Feat. CALIBRE

June 25th, 2012 | By

 FRENZI 2 Year Anniversary with CALIBRE
CALIBRE – (Belfast, Ireland)
[Signature Recordings | | Soul:r | Deep Medi]

Dominick Martin aka Calibre has been responsible for some of the most beautiful tracks in drum & bass to date and continues to drop jaws worldwide with his sublime and sultry productions. Calibre’s sound has progressed taking in elements of jazz, funk, dub and techno but lost none of it’s soul. His influence in drum & bass has been profound yet Calibre continues to evolve as an artist, exploring new techniques and styles in his music. His sets focus primarily on the deeper, more musical side of drum & bass yet never disappoint the dancefloor. Artists and DJ’s from all corners of the electronic music spectrum constantly remark on Calibre DJ sets restoring their faith in Drum & Bass as a vital musical force.

Often imitated but never bettered, Calibre’s sound remains his own after ten years of producing and releasing drum & bass. A creative force and inspiration to others, he refuses to be pinned down to making music in a single style. His single for the Deep Medi label, run by Digital Mystikz don Mala, received a warm reception in the dubstep scene and has demonstrated once again his diversity as a producer.

Consistently the standout on worldwide lineups, every Calibre set is a unique and much valued experience for all those lucky enough to encounter this visionary in a DJ setting.
