Hit & Run vs Grand Theft Audio: James' Birthday Bash on Friday 20th August 2021
** HIT & RUN ROOM **
* GRAY *
This artist has had a whirlwind year breaking onto the scene, smashing multiple socially distance raves and making it nigh on impossible for people to stay seated. He played an outstanding set when he played for HIT & RUN at Social Avenue last summer, and since then he has done a massive Sold Out tour of the new Mecca of DnB known as New Zealand. We’ve been itching to have him back in a proper club with his bag full of Rub-A-Dubplates.
* KARA *
It’s been great to see the emergence of a new wave of Female artists these last few years, and KARA stands out as one of the best. Both a demon in the studio and behind the decks we can see nothing but the brightest of futures for her, and we are delighted to have her up for her first Manchester date.
* DASEPLATE *
Daseplate is not only a sick producer and DJ, but also a one man industrial powerhouse, being behind both Pondlife and the infamous and eponymous Daseplate Discounts. Fully flying the flag for Nottingham, one of the most under-rated epicentres of Bass Music Culture, he proved with his HIT & RUN TV set in March what a formidable talent he is. JADE PARKER Long-time lynchpin of the Manchester scene, Jade’s incredible brand of self-produced Vocal electronica has been a revelation these last few years. She slayed it on her recent debut DJ set on HIT & RUN TV, so know she will warm up the dance perfectly for our room.
With 3 of this city’s best Microphone talents hosting, in the form of T-MAN, SPARKZ and TRUTHOS MUFASA, this will be a show to remember!
** GRAND THEFT AUDIO - JAMES' BIRTHDAY BASH ROOM **
* LEVELA *
Beginning to learn the art of DJ'ing at just 11 years old and progressing to music production at the age of 14; it's safe to say Levela has dedicated his life to Music. 15 years of releasing tracks, Levela has imprinted his own unique style upon the Drum and Bass scene receiving widespread recognition from his peers and dance music fans alike.
Whilst releasing the vast majority of music on his own imprint - Multi Function, the last few years have seen Levela make guest appearances on labels such as Critical Music, RAM Records, VISION and Elevate. These excursions continue into 2021 with multiple single and EP releases scheduled throughout the year plus a string of remixes (released & forthcoming) for the likes of Noisia, Mefjus, Hybrid Minds, S.P.Y, Kasra and Ram Trilogy.
* ROWNEY FT. MC’s TODDLAH + TNT *
We’re excited to present the legendary Drum & Bass DJ/Producer Rowney along with MCs Toddlah & TNT. Already featuring on Innovation, Shadow Demon & Random Concept events, these guys are dropping the Standard Procedure moniker for the night to shell this down differently. Expect a proper journey from this insanely talented trio.
* SOLA & SAMMIE HALL *
Sola is a Drum & Bass trio mainly living in Manchester, UK. They have big releases on Program, Korsakov Music, Formation, Nuusic, Druid Records, and their own imprint Grand Theft Audio. Sammie Hall is a singer/ songwriter from Brighton, UK who has tracks on Ram, Overview, Program, Formation & SkankandBass as well as a bestselling pack on By The Producer.
Sola are known for their variety, making and playing rollers, liquid, jungle, neuro, dancefloor and everything in between. Expect an energetic mix of dubs and classics across the full spectrum all accompanied by vocalist Sammie Hall and host RivalTechnique, a very seasoned MC in his own right.
* JFAL *
Grand Theft Audio’s hottest new signing at the moment Jfal, comes up from Bristol to make his Manchester Debut fresh off releases on Jungle Cakes and Zombie Recordings as well as his huge forthcoming Quartermaster EP on Grand Theft Audio.
* CHARLIE B B2B VEKTRAL B2B PROSEK *
Charlie B has gone from strength to strength in the Jungle scene following on from his releases on Grand Theft Audio he is now also a regular feature on the Deep In The Jungle compilations.
Vektral really embodies the dancefloor side of the Grand Theft Audio sound. One of the youngest signings on the label, he has an extremely bright future ahead of him.
Prosek very much made a name for herself during lockdown using the live streaming format to perform on most of the platforms in the scene. Now with a huge online fanbase, she looks forward to performing at proper raves.
* RIVAL TECHNIQUE *
Over a decade in the game, and hundreds of raves performed at, Rival Technique is the official host for Sola & Sammie Hall. He has had releases on many labels including Grand Theft Audio and the legendary Formation Recordings.
