Youngsta
Youngsta
Without doubt one of the finest DJs in dubstep, Youngsta's flawless mixing and deadly accurate selection place him at the forefront of this evolving scene. Representing flagship label Tempa and Rinse FM, his weekly radio show has become an institution and his live sets continue to raise the bar for quality and innovation. At the age of just 26, Youngsta is already a dubstep veteran with a reputation built on long-running residencies for Rinse and FWD>> and is widely regarded as one of the most influential DJs in the scene. His passion for the music comes across in the care and attention to detail he puts into every single set and can clearly be heard in recent productions, alongside the likes of Seven, N-Type and Kryptic Minds.
Icicle
Icicle
Jeroen Snik – aka Icicle – is recognised as one of the most technically advanced and highly-respected producers in electronic music. Mastering tech-funk better than any other, Icicle's music is graceful yet daring and, without doubt, technically remarkable, tinged with intricate drum patterns reminiscent of Photek and entrancing, enveloping bass-lines à la Jonny L and Optical.
After commanding the attention of the masses with releases on labels such as Shogun Audio, Soul:R, Renegade Hardware and Critical, Icicle made the move from Holland to London in 2008, and now officially reps Shogun Audio. 'Spartan', Icicle's debut on Shogun, broke a musical mould and securely positioned his elaborate engineering skills on the proverbial map.
With bookings in abundance all over the world, Mr Freeze's sound ventures have kept the listeners anticipating eagerly his every release prompting a dangerously frosty EP on Shogun Audio in 2009 - the 'Cold Fear' EP - featuring an ice-cool collaboration 'Driftwood' with tech-pioneers, Noisia. Impressively, Icicle's deep, dark and futuristic dubstep has been fervently received on a global scale and caused groundbreaking responses from the dubstep world, thanks to 'Minimal Dub' b/w 'Xylophobia' released on Shogun Audio in 2010. There really are no constraints to this producer's aptitude - nothing short of astonishing.
Even greater news, then, that Icicle's been working on his debut album 'Under The Ice' for Shogun dropping in early 2011. The first release from the LP, 'Dreadnaught' b/w 'Arrows', is a prime expression of Icicle's super-human sonic force. Intelligent drum arrangements and mighty blood-warming bass-lines secure him firmly as one of the most flawless and exceptional electronic producers of his day.
