Here is a relatively new label emerging from the Nottingham/Derby area. All artists on the label are heavily involved with nights around the area and produce a varied range of Dubstep. Some heavy, some techy, some minimally – check it.
Earlybird, a Nottingham born and bred producer started life as a garage DJ. With a release already out on Geoim’s label Berkane Sol and many more planned for the future combined with recent DJ bookings alongside Youngsta, Seven and Coki and his tune 'Net Weight' (feat.Geiom) being played by Mary Anne Hobbs - his future is looking very bright indeed.
Ashburner, the only person who seems to be holding up a lighter out of Derby has made massive waves in the last year. His tune 'Dead Mans Shoes' was featured in Jakes' top ten in ATM Magazine and he’s received DJ support from the likes of Jakes, 24k, Sam Supa and Beezy to name but a few. Also with frequent plays on Rinse.fm, Sub.fm, Dubstep.fm, React.fm and having been offered his own show on Fly.fm (Tuesdays 8-9pm), 2009 could certainly be his year.
Enigma, the man/machine behind Nottingham’s biggest dubstep night MISST comes with his first tunes straight out of the studio. He brings a really nice minimal vibe to the table with some serious bass. Also having put together a really nice remix of one of Spam Chop’s tunes, this is only the beginning of this producer...
Back To Ya Roots
Blitzz, a MISST resident which has played along side the likes of N-Type, Walsh, Distance, Headhunter, Geoim, Rusko, Chef, Hatcha... the list goes on and on. Now he’s put his head deep into the production chamber and has come out with some dancefloor gold. Absolute neck breakers these ones, be sure to watch out for some serious collab action from this boy in the future.
