THE NEXTMEN
Unless you have fallen lifeless somewhere thru the cracks you’ve more than likely witnessed Cambridge come Londoners The Nextmen, also known as Brad Baloo and Dom Search, at one of their many sweaty styled-out club sets, festival-smashing performances or heard their incendiary mixtapes, some just days old and some many years since they were recorded, that are still filling the ears of the blissed-out masses who just want to kick back or kick up with big boss tunes, not wipe the irony from their chins from the up-chuck of resoundingly vapid faux counter-culture buffoonery. All mouth poser twats with limited social agendas beware – The Nextmen are not the centre of cool for the next five minutes. Beloved the globe over by dedicated followers of music not dedicated followers of fashion? Yep. Loving of the good groove irrespective of the genre but not of taste? Yep. The all-day every day no-brainer block-rocking choice? Natch.

EMALKAY
A brilliant and inimitable producer, Emalkay refuses to define himself by anything other than his own musical evolution. From his early years producing grime and garage, right through to 2011 and with the release of debut album ‘Eclipse’, he has continued to break new ground and move forward with each and every track he makes.
A handful of carefully chosen remixes for Pendulum, Faithless and Miike Snow, have opened up the ears of a whole new audience to Emalkay’s music, and as a consequence, a burgeoning DJ schedule has seen him bring his music to bigger crowds, taking in a number of festivals on the way – the last eighteen months alone has seen him tour the US and Canada twice, smash apart Glastonbury and bring mayhem to the regular Dub Police nights at the legendary fabric nightclub!

UTAH JAZZ
You heard it here first: UTAH JAZZ, D&B’s very own “soul prince” (iDJ magazine), is back –?The electric versatility of his soulful dancefloor style has also made Luke Wilson one of the most sought-after DJs on the international stage. Mixing anything from 1993 LTJ Bukem classics to the latest Sub Focus banger, Utah Jazz is a party-bringer like no other, with one-off dubplates, three-deck mixes and old-skool razzle-dazzle bursting from his bag of tricks.

WARNING: This is rare, refined and remarkable dance music. It may cause your friends to envy your good taste.
