A.M.C. has great future plans, but he is dedicated to setting up great foundations first. He possesses the most powerful and critical attributes of a drum‘n‘bass performer – attention to detail, technical articulation and huge amounts of patience. Alex Mark Calvert, a student of the British school, better known as A.M.C. understands the complexity of the “game theory,” as well as the skills of the ancient trade. Since he first came to the scene in 2007 until today, he has been tirelessly working, with a 24/7 focus that brought him to the eminent and influential position of one of the most respected modern DJs, producers and label owners.
Brazilian DJ Chap and Level 2 joined forces and created ALIBI, and after they signed a contract with V Recordings, numerous impressive tracks followed. They spent time establishing themselves as solo producers, in cooperation with V Recordings, Liquid V, Innerground, Hospital and many others, and now they are fully prepared for this new manner of collaboration. The Brazilian duo is working with great names of the D&B scene, such as DRS, MC Fats, Command Strange, L-Side, MC Coppa, and this is far from the end of their musical journey. Their songs are supported by numerous artists, such as Bryan Gee, Ivy Lab, S.P.Y., London Elektricity, High Contrast, Lezman and many others.
Before Paul Trivett and Edward Oberon joined forces, they have already had an impressive discography, working for well-known labels such as Spearhead, Dispatch and Goodlooking as solo artists. After working together via the internet for some time, it has not been long since they decided to cooperate on regular basis. The duo has a goal of joining visual, musical and artistic into one, which is a theme present during their collaboration on the Bryan Gee’s publishing house. Songs such as 'Tempt,' 'Infamousand,' 'Somebody Else' show their versatility, talent and capabilities and, above all, the quality that is their trademark. Although they are studio experts, this exciting drum’n’bass duo are masters at making people move during their live performances. Paul and Edward have already played all over the world, from Maximum in Montenegro to Netherlands, Poland and Germany, kicking out the jams at the mighty London's Fabric as well! With an impressive CV, rising fan base and new music on the way, there is no doubt that the best is yet to come.
With a passport filled with stamps, rocking exclusive selections and technical skills to match, TREi is one of the leading stars of the New Zealand drum’n’bass scene. Internationally known as a producer and DJ, in the last seven years TREi left his mark in his homeland, as well as abroad – especially in Europe where after successfully touring in 22 countries, he became a household name on the drum’n’bass scene. Based in Wellington, his contagious mixes and anthemic production brought him to some of the finest labels, night clubs, DJs and producers of the planet. Publishing under the watchful eye of Viper Recordings, Commercial Suicides, Shogun Ltd, Samurai Music, Uprising Recordings and regularly supported by well-known names, such as Concord Dawn, Andy C, Klute, Friction and Black Sun Empire, his presence is impossible to escape.
