    Past:

    Rising to fame around 2006, Oneman became famous for his vinyl blending of old garage tunes into the latest dubstep rhythms, 2007 saw him playing regularly on Rinse FM – a residency which he still holds to this day. 2008 saw him appear on Mary Anne Hobbs Radio 1 show – a first for a DJ to go on there without releasing any records.

     

     

    Snap forward to 2010 and Oneman founded 502 Recordings – his own label to showcase upcoming talents – Teeth, Jay Weed + Fis-T to name a few. Over the next few years he toured the UK and Europe, destroying dances wherever he touched down. Releasing his “Solitare” Mixtapes along the way, to a roaring reception, not to mention FabricLive 64 – Mixed by the man himself in 2012

     

     

    Present:

    2014 saw Oneman touring further afield – such as North America, he was already a big name on festival lineups from Bestival to Dekmantel to Bugged Out to name a few, but him and Jackmaster had something more crafty up their sleeves….The “Can U Dance” Tour saw the pair play packed stages B2B with 4 decks showcasing exactly how deep their record bags went, which was received greatly across the globe – also recording an essential mix at Glastonbury.

    Past:

    Crazy Cousinz is a collective of talented producers from London that formed in 2007. They soon made a name for themselves in both commercial and underground circles for their fresh minded and inventive house productions. Funky house, deep house and rolling main room house are all fair game and the collective naturally come from very diverse musical backgrounds.

     

     

    Flukes is a classically trained talent who has produced well-known pop and grime hits ‘Fallin’, ‘Wifey Riddim’ and ‘Hood Economics’ for the likes of Tiny Tempah. Paleface started out as a drum & bass producer and has been crowned ‘King of the Bassline’ by his fans. Kodi started out in the industry as a studio engineer working with a range of grime, hip hop and bashment artists from Giggs to Stylo G. The last part of the puzzle is Play, both a producer and a DJ, who first became involved in the industry through promoting and hosting some of the most popular urban club nights in London.

     

     

    Present:

    Although varied in genres, the Cousinz share a passion for making good music and their different backgrounds have complimented each other and resulted in their unique sound. Some of their biggest successes to date include ‘Daydreaming’, ‘It’s That Funky’ and ‘Bongo Jam’, which counted Trevor Nelson as a big fan. Their album ‘This is UK Funky House Vol I’ defined the funky house sound and placed Crazy Cousinz very much at the centre of the genre. It’d be rude to not also mention that their track “I don’t mind (Ft Kayla)” was sampled in Drake’s latest chart topper

     

     

    Future:

    After an electric set on Boiler Room a few months back, the collective seem to still be kicking out tunes, including a remix for Craig David – another star seen to be making a comeback into this decade’s ever flowing + evolving music scene – we’re certainly excited to see what they have to show us at the next DBE event, it’s time to get funkeh.
