DJ Sliink(Brick Bandits, Mad Decent)
As part of the Brick Bandits, which include the likes of Tim Dolla, Dirty South Joe and DJ Sega, DJ Sliink's records have been obliterating club sound systems through the hands of some of the most respected soundbwoys in the business.
His signature blend of Jersey/Philly club, incorporating aggressive uptempo rhythms with soothing Pop and R&B samples give him extensive appeal across the pop and underground spectrum.
His DJ sets run the gammot of Pop, Dubstep, Moombahton, Jersey/Philly/Baltimore Club, House and Reggae - the standard loadout for a working New York Club DJ.
With upcoming releases on Hype Headz, Pelican Fly out of Brussels, and guest slots on Mad Decent Mondays, this naturally gifted talent out of Newark, NJ is an artist to watch in this emerging wave of hybrid dance music.
Contakt(TURRBOTAX®, Local Action)
Hailing from Lansing, Michigan, Detroit’s blue collar sister city and state capitol, it’s hard not to hear Techno, Electro and Ghettotech (then called simply “bass” or “booty-music”). Infatuated by these local sounds and the emerging Midwest hip-hop scene, Contakt suddenly found himself at the center of it all, djing at illegal parties, and launching Lansing’s first record store devoted solely to hip-hop, electronic music, and hardcore/punk. This success quickly lead to relocating to New York and landing in the epicenter of the independent hip-hop movement running the world famous Fat Beats Records, and DJing at shows with everyone from Cormega to J-Zone, MF Doom to Necro.
As dubstep gained traction in the states, and 2-Step and garage were resurrected by artists like Burial and Kode 9, Contakt returned to his roots launching the first party in the United States devoted to "bass music" or whatever you call the interesting stuff that isn’t quite Dubstep. The event; TURRBOTAX®, quickly found success as part of the NYC bass trifecta (alongside Trouble & Bass and Dubwar) with a devoted following and world class headliners like Todd Edwards, Mosca, Bok Bok, Robert Hood, Kode9, Julio Bashmore, Ben UFO, Oneman and more. The success of TURRBOTAX® lead to inevitable UK and European tours, as well as guest appearances on RinseFM, London's premiere radio station for bass music, house, and garage.
At the top of 2012, TURRBOTAX® is already poised for an incredible year, and Contakt is readying several releases and remixes, and even more DJ bookings. Known for combining an amazing selection dubplates from the best in bass music with rare Detroit Techno vinyl and his own productions – Contakt's DJ sets have a vibe entirely of their own
it's a word of mouth thing
that's right. brooklyn might be lacking in sound, but over in manhattan we get down. (new subwoofers in the place)
