have been steadily building a name for them throughout Europe as Belgiumʼs finest bass music export. Coming from the early Belgian jungle scene, Wallace and Kalib created Grimelock in 2004. MC's Maëlan and Dynamic joined the crew shortly after to fill the shows with their energy.
On stage they bring a unique, explosive and fast-paced combination of dubstep, garage, electro and hip hop in which are blended own productions, exclusive dubplates and timeless classics. Add to this the raw live energy of the MCʼs and donʼt be surprised if you find yourself bouncing, sweating and screaming for more.
In 2008 they set up Stainage Records, a label aiming to promote Belgian productions worldwide. They were also responsible for the infamous Stainage parties that brought all the biggest dubstep names in Brussels ages before the hype.
is a singer/producer born in Brussels and raised in a multicultural environment inspired and influenced by African music,
reggae and hip hop.
At 8 he composed his first melodies on a little casio keyboard. In high school his style of singing attracted attention meanwhile he recorded his first demos.
Later on he moves to UK with the firm intention to improve his musical knowledge studying music production.When he
returns to Belgium he begins to perform as an MC and backing vocal alongside Grimelock and Dynamic, touring the biggest festivals and venues all around Europe.
Currently he is adding the finishing touches to his debut LP "Live Life", a subtle crossover between his childhoodʼs musical influences and the sound of dubstep and grime. The album (forthcoming in 2010) features collaborations with artists like Omar Perry, Grimelock, Dynamic or Stanna G.
Stainage was the name used by Kalib and Marsellus Wallace (Grimelock) for their parties, circa 2005.
They invited some of the most genre defining producers to play in Brussels at a point when dubstep just started bubbling and the hunger for freshness was measured by the evergrowing number of enthusiasts.
Three years later, time has come to step up to a next level. Stainage Records was set up in 2008 with the purpose to promote quality Belgian bass oriented music.

"Brussels label Stainage made their debut late last year with a breathtaking split EP from Grimelock and Saviour (“one of the heaviest plates of old style sublow and dubstep consolidations that we've heard in ages” – Boomkat), and now return with this new vinyl outing boasting a trio of tunes united by their anthemic proportions, bringing three different flavours and moods to the room from label-founders Grimelock, Alchemyst, and the vocal talents of Maëlan.
From steamy reggae vibes to grimey low-end to cinematic sub-bass pressure, the ‘Feel The Heat’ EP delivers on all fronts. Maëlan's title-track cut (produced by Alchemyst) drops a tight fusion of smoked dancehall and uplifting mid range basslines that roll along effortlessly with Maëlan's vocals to bring a positive vibe that guarantees instant rewind and dancefloor madness. Big niceness assured on this one for all fans of Mungo’s Hi-Fi’s harder output on Scrub A Dub or the Police In Helicopter massive. Grimelock have been steadily building a name for themselves as Belgium’s finest bass music export. Rooted in the early Belgian jungle scene, the duo bring a unique, explosive and high-speed combination of dubstep, garage, electro and hip hop. As well as starting the Stainage label, they are also responsible for the infamous Stainage parties that brought many of the biggest dubstep and bass selectors to Brussels long before the scene became well known.
Their ‘Total Recall’ is an introspective journey through a tense cinematic soundscape that builds toward a shattering blast of sonic artillery. Also starting out as a drum & bass DJ, Alchemyst has been producing for nearly a decade, searching out different approaches to make music that appeals the ear while at the same time disturbing and arousing emotions. His style sits somewhere between grime, dubstep, and experimental electronica, with industrial atmospheres shaken up by dis-organized rhythms.
On ‘Bitch Smackin Killa’, Alchemyst reaches for his darkside and delivers a badman grimey-crunky riddim where the bass riff is the perfect hook and the hammer style drums create devastation in the dance. This one is a pure energy blow."
