After what will be a wicked event with Fred V & Grafix on May 9th, Soapbox Events and Bass Drop team up once again for a massive double header Drum N Bass show on June long weekend headlined by
Danny Byrd & Hamilton at the Oxford Art Factory June 6th
One of the very first artists to sign to the fledgling Hospital label - way back at the turn of the millennium, Danny Byrd's own inimitable take on soulful, vocal Drum + Bass has become a staple in the scene. His use of hip hop, house and R&B influences immediately began turning heads with his first Hospital outings. The Bath based, brandy drinking producer has been responsible from some massive rave anthems over the years, which has gained him Radio One success and international recognition.
Having signed to the label in the early noughties, Danny Byrd released a number of singles, such as "Do It Again" (2000), "Changes" (2001) and "Dog Hill" (2006), However, it was not until 2008 that Danny delivered his long awaited debut long player "Supersized". Having spent years honing his craft, the album was an excellent display of his skills and featured massive anthems such as "Shock Out", "From Bath With Love" and "Red Mist (feat I-Kay)". The album gained support from Radio One heavy hitters such as Annie Mac and Zane Lowe, as well as the mighty Andy C. The VIP version of "Red Mist" catapulted its way onto the daytime Radio One playlist and received over six hours of Radio One play in 2009, all to itself!
Having conquered a number of different dance music genres, this talented versatile producer turned his full attention to drum & bass in the latter half of the 2000's culminating in signing an exclusive deal with Andy C's Ram Records. His tracks "Soundboy" and "Echoes" were considered to be some of the stand out tracks featured on the Nightlife 5 compilation. Since then Hamilton has released a number of singles including the massive "Brainstorm" and the sublime piece of dance floor driven liquid that is "Deep In My Heart". He's keeping busy on the remix front too, crafting reworks for the likes of Blackout's "L.O.V.E", indie/dance hybrid Enter Shikari's "Sssnakepit", label mates Loadstar 's "Black & White” and most recently Tankia's vocal anthem "Bad 4 U", also topping the drum & bass charts with his barnstorming VIP of TC’s dance floor anthem "Tap Ho”.
As a DJ he’s well renowned for his damaging three deck sets at events in the UK and around the world, mixing and blending drop after drop. 2014 sees Hamilton locked down in the studio working away on his debut album.
