Blunted Stuntman

English born, he has strove to push the new beats in South Africa, obvious by his recent set at the Oppikoppi Music Festival. Blunted has played there for 13 years and it was a blast of ghetto funk with old African vocal samples flowing through the basslines of the dub side of the current UK Funky hype. Blunted Stuntman's debut mix CD has been released and features a 2CD collection of South African and International Breakbeats. 'Breakin' ZA' features Blunted Stuntman's own productions "Portraits in Sound" and "This Is My Life" and you'll probaby be able to hear them right here!

Dr. Octagon is one of Kool Keith's many alter egos. His initial release as Dr. Octagon was 1996's Dr. Octagonecologyst, on which he collaborated with Dan the Automator Nakamura and DJ QBert. After the name was dropped in favour of Dr. Dooom, it was widely believed that it wouldn't be used again until the release of 2006's The Return of Dr. Octagon, which Keith maintains was changed and released without his consent.

The Funkoars are an Australian hip hop act from Adelaide, Australia and formed in 1999. Funkoars were founded on the unique personalities of four individuals. These larger than life musicians were drawn to each other not just from a love of music, but their light hearted and jovial outlook on life. It’s these personalities coupled with their prodigious talent that has brought Funkoars their success. The energetic and humorous nature of their lyrics is not something that can be emulated.
