Brookes Brothers / https://soundcloud.com/brookesbrothers
One of the most respected production partnerships in Drum and Bass, the Brookes Brothers have become a formidable force across the bass music scene. Known for their unique, soul and disco infused beats, the Brookes Brothers are one of the genres most accomplished production teams.
Fresh from the BBC Radio 1 playlisted hit ‘Loveline’ released to wide acclaim on Breakbeat Kaos in late 2012, the legendary production team signed exclusively to the label they started out with, Viper Recordings.
In August 2013 the Brothers released ‘Carry Me On’ (featuring Chrom3 on vocals) to high acclaim, being selected as Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record in the World”, as well as making the BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra playlist and hitting #7 on the official UK Independent Charts. With a new album in the works for 2014, the most exciting chapter so far for the Brookes Brothers is about to emerge.
Culprate ft. Maksim / https://soundcloud.com/culprate
Culprate’s musical intuition started at the age of just 13 when he decided to learn the guitar. By the age of 15, Culprate’s passion and creativity really came into bloom as he was introduced to electronic music, and of course how to produce it, at college. From then on it was simply a matter of time before his driven persona and growing production skills resulted in mind blowing anthems, tearing their way through clubs around the world.
Having established various releases on various record labels, the time has come for Culprate to gain some real direction. The 5 Star EP via Inspected Records marks a new era for Culprate. Aptly named, the EP is massively anticipated, and has already gained the support from the likes of KOAN Sound, Gemini & Skrillex. Admittedly, Culprate's releases have always been a tad sporadic, but the 5 Star EP is certainly the result of careful planning and meticulous attention to detail.
It's fair to say that Culprate is a household name in the underground world of dubstep. However, he is far from content, admitting recently he would love to get his hands on some hardware to take his production to the next level. And with influences ranging from Squarepusher to Amon Tobin, only Culprate could tell you what sort of production the future holds. But from what we’ve seen already, we know it’ll be good.
