Enkryption Projekt is a Brooklyn based dubstep crew. Its sights are set on global domination, with its goal being to make the world buy bigger speakers, and drink whiskey straight out the bottle. EP is headed by long time Konkrete Jungle resident Alias with Konkrete veteran dj and sound system scientist, Iron Myke, and various MC’s. They are the ill bass dropping, party rockin, breakbeat renegades. The clubs with the biggest subwoofers are usually where you can find them on any given night. These men are specialized in slinging the heaviest of dubstep beats on serious sound systems. With every member of the crew racking 10 years or more in the NYC Dj/Mc circuit, they have evolved into a force with the ability to destroy and re-assemble a dancefloor as they see fit. http://www.myspace.com/enkryptionprojekt
Hellfire Machina - Stepping out from The Big Apple, but originating from London, HELLFIRE MACHINA have been turning heads since the projects inception last year. Sonic exploration in the realm of 140 bpm, with an ethos of non conformity, heavy bass and fierce attitude, the Hellfire crew are set to explode. Their productions have already been devastating dancefloors around the world which has led to a biweekly Dj residency in New York, numerous releases penned for the first part of 2009 not to mention a host of remixes that are currently being crafted in their studio ‘Planet Twisted’.
Dave GEE is quickly becoming a favorite in the NYC Dubstep scene. His party rocking style pays homage to the decade that he spent working as a Jump-Up Jungle DJ and promoter on the East Coast. Always keeping the dance floor in mind, his sets are comprised of dancehall inspired tunes and crucial wobblers. Dave works full time as CEO of Methods Clothing and simultaneously is holding down residencies at the Dark Room and Pressure parties in New York City. With a steady amount of out-of-town gigs coming up, this is one DJ you need to catch when he’s in your city. http://www.myspace.com/davegee
Nebulla - Hailing from New York City, Nebulla got his start spinning Hip Hop in the North Carolina college circuit. Already a longtime Jungle and Drum and Bass enthusiast he quickly refined his style with a clear dedication to mash-up genres. In 2007 Nebulla teamed up with DJ Dore to create the Dirtystep Mixtape series. Volumes 1 and 2 were widely received and have lead to an avalanche of Crunk/Dirtysouth influenced Dubstep production. Nebulla started Code Of Arms Records in the summer of 2007. Los Angeles based label La Dubstep Nostra singed Nebulla and Dore in 2008 for their Czar Black Remix Gettin’ Doe which was released on vinyl along with tracks by Parson and 6blocc. Now a resident of the world famous Konkrete Jungle Origination… expect to hear big things from Nebulla in 2009. http://www.myspace.com/djnebulla
Dore - Raised on Thelonious Monk, Motown and Soul II Soul, DJ Dore began munching ragga jungle and dub in the late 90’s and is now a fully fledged beat omnivore with an appetite for dubstep, grime, bassline and house flavors. A formidable selector, Dore is also known for his signature sub-heavy production and furious drum programming skills. His tracks appear on Code Of Arms Records and LA Dubstep Nostra. Any set from Dore is sure to be a terrific break-filled blend of exclusive dublates and his own blistering production. http://www.myspace.com/djdore
Diggadee MC Has launched from the world of Drum n’ Bass and landed on planet Dubstep. Although Dnb will always be the main ingredient on Diggadee’s menu, the Dubstep movement brings a more expansive range of musical awareness. Performing with many of the biggest names in Drum n’ Bass from around the world, Diggadee has also managed to work with a few of the biggest names in Dustep as well i.e. Skream & Benga. As the two genre’s seem to intertwine, the ability to vibe and adapt is necessary in an ever changing music scene. MC Diggadee, Diggadee MC…the spaceship has landed.
