Key Press "The missing link between Soundgarden and The Prodigy has materialised. Killaflaw would be equally at home at Download as they would at Creamfields. Benn has a voice that would blow a stadium away, as well as any club." Eddy Temple-Morris, Losers, Dance Rocks DJ and XFM The Remix "If only Led Zeppelin stopped ripping off blues artists and heard The Prodigy decades earlier, they'd probably sound like this... Killaflaw have been flooring jaws across their tours with a high octane set that commands you to either dance, or mosh."

Diverted have rapidly established themselves as one of the most innovative electronic acts around through their live monthly residency at Ali B’s long running Air night where they have been the house band since early 2007, playing alongside the likes of Minuit, Bastila and The London Breakbeat Orchestra. With each show, their sound has constantly evolved through the regular addition of new musicians and vocalists. Songs are often written and then road tested in front of the loyal Air crowd on the same day, before ultimately being recorded and put on the shortlist for their forthcoming album.

Da Lata was originally founded by musician and producer Chris Franck and DJ Patrick Forge in the summer of 1996. The idea for the project was to blend afro-brazilian influences with modern dance sensibility incorporating both acoustic and electronic elements in the music. Early experimentation came in the form of remixes rather than original material which proved to be a great way of honing the sound and at the same time gave exposure to the name.
Breakbeat and musicality aren't always easy bedfellows. Some noisecore terrorists shun the sounds of any real instruments, but the productions of Ils have always managed to combine melody and harmony with astute dancefloor savvy. Whether it be some of the jazzy drum + bass tracks he released on LTJ Bukem's label in the mid-90s or the amazing 'Next Level' - one of the biggest breakbeat tracks ever - Ils has quite a pedigree of tracks.

Hexadecimal have smashed their way through the Nottingham breaks scene and are causing similar sonic destruction as they take their sound out of town.
